For over a decade, I've been a commercial recruiter, I've spent my entire professional career promoting jobs seekers to companies, securing interviews for people. Now, in that process, I've learnt some skills and I want to share those with you today. I really do understand what needs to go into a CV to make sure that you secure that interview, you secure that opportunity, I want you to have real, real impact with this document but this document is a sales document, it's a marketing document, you are selling a product to a customer, you are the product and the customer is the employer.
If you want to effectively sell anything to anyone, you have to feel like them, think like them, be them in that moment and I wanna spend some time in this course making sure that you really, really understand that, we're gonna cover that. It's also important that you speak to one person about one thing at one time. That means that you have to tailor your CV every time you're applying for a job but I want to make sure that you know how to do that. So, let's have a little look at all of the things that this course is going to include. So, this course will cover the purpose of the CV, the CV sections and what to include in those sections, how to open with impact, you've got five seconds to make an impression really, really quickly, and we're gonna show you how to do that.
