24 April: CV Clinic – How to Write a Successful CV

Formats and content have both changed in recent years, leaving many people with an out-of-date CV.  So updating a CV is no longer just a matter of adding your most recent professional experience or explaining a recent career gap.

If the thought of updating your CV fills you with dread, or if you have questions about what is currently expected in a best-practice CV, this workshop if for you!  It is designed to be useful for people at all stages – whether you are ready to apply for your next role (or a promotion), or are simply considering a return to work.

Join us for an informative 90-minute, small group workshop in North West London, where, using the latest industry insights, Career Expert Kath Sloggett will explain:

– the basics for current best-practice CVs, including the essential sections, ideal length and format

– how to make your CV work harder for you

– what to say about your career break (if you have one)

– how Applicant Tracking Systems (or software ‘spiders’) work and the importance of keywords

– the importance of consistency between your CV and LinkedIn and other social media networks.

** Bring a paper copy of your CV with you and Kath will provide a quick mini-review and some personalised suggestions.**
