You’ve probably had lots of varying opinions on your CV from your friends, colleagues, family members and others. Usually, this just leads to confusion as they’ll all have very different views on what to leave in, what to take out, what it should look like, what it should say etc. This isn’t generally helpful and it could just send you into a spiral of uncertainty about whether or not your CV is a ‘good enough’ for today’s competitive jobs market.
Truly, the only views that matter are those of hiring managers who’ll decide if the CV tells them enough about you to warrant an invitation to interview.
Have you made it clear and easily readable for them to quickly find the info they need to know? Does the CV tell them how you meet the basic requirements they’ve set out in the job description? Have you illustrated what makes you a better candidate than all the others?
I consider CVs I review and those I write from the perspective of the hiring manager. So if you’d like some feedback on the viability of your CV, here’s what you need to do:
Email your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
In your email, clearly tell me the type of job that your CV is targeting and your expected salary level.
I’ll take a look and email some honest feedback to you, based on my experience as a hiring manager.
Please check your inbox/junk/spam folders and if you haven’t heard anything from me within 7 days, just drop me an email to let me know.
