Is Your CV Letting You Down?

Are You Fed Up of Submitting Your CV and Getting No Response From Employers?

 

  • Maybe it’s time to make a change, to change your life for the better.
  • When we want our house decorating, kitchen fitted, or windows cleaned we employ a professional.
  • Yet we continue to have an expectation that we can plan and write our own CV’s and because we wrote them, it’s bound to open doors

 

Unfortunately, it doesn’t necessarily work like that as you’re probably beginning to find out.

Winston Churchill said the following, regarding mistakes.

“All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes”

Then there was Albert Einstein who tellingly said “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new”

What is the Purpose of a CV?

It’s in effect a marketing document that sets out to prove why you’re the best person for the job.

  • You need to outline your employment history, skills and achievements.
  • Your achievements are what you’ll use to provide that evidence, also to try and prove that you’re the best fit. Although at this stage the latter is probably the most difficult to prove on a CV but far easier should you get an interview opportunity.

Why Are Achievements Important?

Companies are looking for the best candidates possible and they’re trying to establish from your CV, what you can do for them!

  • Can you save them money?
  • Save them time?
  • Come up with new workable ideas?
  • How can you increase revenue?

What is the Best Way to Sell Your Achievements?

We’ve mentioned previously what companies want from you, but the trick is now to put this information in a form that’s concise and totally put’s you in the wanted pile, for an interview.

 

CHALLENGE – ACTIONRESULTS

This is an effective way of telling potential employers what you’ve achieved and how you’ve made a real difference.

Challenge – What was the problem, need or situation?

Action – What did you do about the challenge?

Results – What outcomes were you responsible for?

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

Achievement statements bring your achievements to life, and we’ve picked out some examples from “The International Hellenic University” also “Brandman University” which really impressed us.
