From the Author
Many people have no idea where to begin when it comes to compiling their own CV. Whether a graduate or a board member, most of you could sell yourselves better. In an increasingly competitive job market, your CV and cover letter need to voice very quickly why you should be short-listed for interview.
As founder of a CV writing company, I have helped hundreds of people win their dream job through compiling a CV and cover letter that gives them killer competitive advantage. In order to reach and help more people, I chose to write a book.
Part one of my book covers mentally preparing yourself, identifying your ideal job, and job-hunting tactics. Part two provides a detailed account of how to create an effective, interview-winning CV. Part three concentrates on constructing a dynamic cover letter.
Both the book and free CD include real-life, practical examples that have actually won interviews for others. Also, the views and opinions of twelve industry experts are presented throughout my book, giving insight into current standards, trends and employer requirements. The CD also contains numerous CV and cover letter templates for all levels of job applicant.
I get a buzz from helping people achieve their dreams and aspirations. I have accomplished this over and over again in the last seven years. Proud as I am to have been able to make a difference to so many peoples' lives, I hope I can make a difference to yours, too!See all Product description
