Creating a CV

Posted on April 2, 2014 at 12:01 pm

Employers go through hundreds of CV applications for each job. They’ll glance at your CV for a couple of seconds and debate whether or not you are a suitable candidate for an further interview pending your job application. Statistics show that employers look at a candidates CV for six seconds on average. Therefore, your CV is vital when applying for a job and it has to stand out from the crowd. This does not mean putting a display of colours and large text everywhere, it needs to consist of no more than two pages, it has to be clear and concise as well as have a professional layout.

CV

Your CV is your chance to show an employer the best of what you’ve got. It’s about selling your skills and experience, and showing them you’re the right person for the job. It should contain:

Your Personal Details: You should include your name, address and contact details.It’s up to you whether you include your age, marital status and nationality but employers should be able to make a decision about your skills and abilities without this information.

Your Personal Profile: This is a mini advert summarising your skills, hobbies and interests, achievements and career aims. It is important that the first few lines of this section stand out and really sells you. Try to avoid over-used terms, such as ‘reliable’, ‘hard working’, ‘team player’, ‘good communication skills’ etc. These terms are heard very often and they don’t help an employer to build up a picture of you.

Experience: In this section you should start with your present or most recent job and work backwards. You should include the name of your past employers, the dates you worked for them, job title and your main duties. Provide more detail on the relevant jobs you’ve had and give examples of the skills you used and what you achieved. If you have had no real experience highlight your education and training.

Education: Start with your most recent qualifications and work back to the ones you got at school. Using bullet points or a table include:the university, college or school you went to and the dates the qualifications were awarded and any grade.

References: At least one reference should be work-related. Or, if you haven’t worked for a while, you could use another responsible person who has known you for some time, for example a past teacher.

Will a Degree help you get a job?

Posted on February 28, 2014 at 7:48 am

University can give people a sense of freedom and control over their own destiny; it’s a time when you move out, interact with different people and get a taste of the working world. But the question is “will it get you a job and more opportunities in the long run?”

More and more people are earning themselves degrees, and that can be seen as a good thing and a bad thing at the same time because it means more competition for places. One problem with a degree is the fact that you may come away finding yourself stuck in the middle of being under qualified and over qualified at the same time.

A degree is not usually enough to automatically guarantee you a job and work experience is still vital in many job sectors. Generally speaking you can open yourself up to more possibilities with a degree, but it’s all about motivation and dedication, and working your way up the ladder, which is usually the case for the majority of jobs out there in the UK, and not just graduate jobs.

Working From Home

Posted on January 31, 2014 at 5:21 pm

Most businesses are very reticent to allowing people to work from home. If it something that you would like to do then it is important that you look at it from the perspective of your employer, and then hopefully you will better understand their position if or when they say no. From their perspective, they are sacrificing a lot of their control over your workload, and trusting that you are being honest about what you’ve accomplished, and how long it took you. Most people who make the jump over to working from home find it very difficult to maintain their momentum when it comes to working. This is not surprising, as most people depend upon the motivation and discipline that comes from working on a team and depending on each other. Of course, there are exceptions to this, and some people actually find it easier to work from home. The benefits of working from home are readily apparent, but often what you think are benefits actually end up becoming burdensome, making work difficult.

Job Recruitment

Posted on January 29, 2014 at 3:31 pm

Job recruitment can be quite an engaging job, where you are constantly interacting with people and businesses who are looking for work and workers. It can get to be quite a complicated job, where you are constantly searching for both new businesses and new job seekers, who you can hopefully match up based upon each others suitability. This can be quite difficult, as businesses will often have a complex and long list of attributes that they expect you to find from among your list of prospective job seekers. Meanwhile, you have to coach your prospective job seekers on how to supply appropriate information. Vetting prospective job seekers can be complicated as well, you have to determine the reality of their abilities and experience, as people will regularly lie on their CV’s. This is a very important part of the job, as any failing on your part to do a good job will reflect poorly on your recruitment agency, and likely result in loss of business.
