About This Workshop

Your CV is one of the most important personal branding documents in your job seeking toolbox. However, it is also the reason why so many applications are met with the dreaded rejection letter... cue sad violin 🎻

THE HARSH TRUTH: Recruiters and hiring managers don’t read CVs; they SCAN them. The average scan takes less than 10 seconds. If your CV does not grab the reader’s attention in those 10 seconds, then it is doomed for the rejection pile.

This workshop will teach you how to set your CV up so that it reads exactly how a recruiter or hiring manager scans it, making sure that your relevant skills and experience are easily apparent and in the most logical order.

If your CV is old and out of date or if you don’t even have one to start off with, then this workshop will teach you how to create a professional and polished CV that you will be proud to send out.

***This class is part of our brand new 'How to Land Your Dream Gig' workshop series. Check out our class on Interviewing Tips & Tricks and get yourself ready for the next step in your career.
