CVs in an online world

Despite the increasing popularity of online job applications the CV remains the cornerstone of every job application, which is why getting it right is so important.

You may also need different versions of your CV, which can be tailored to a variety of needs.

The Absolute CV

is your working document, which includes every detail of your educational and working life. It is a reference tool for pre-formatted application forms and is not to be used for circulation.

The Generic CV

demonstrates where you are in your working life and lets the reader understand your skills, achievements and aspirations. The style is general rather than specific, and would be used for posting on online job websites and making speculative applications to companies and organisations.

The Targeted CV

is written to demonstrate clearly your skills and experience that match the requirements of your chosen role. The targeted CV highlights your most relevant experience and is written for a specific role.

“I have received excellent feedback on the CV you created for me – thank you again" (HR Business Partner)

“I now have a CV I am proud to send out” (Housing Officer)

"I examined all my sensations calmly; I could hear myself live, so to speak."
