Why Have a Professionally Prepared CV?

An effective CV captures the right amount and type of information, relevant to the reader, about your career and professional credentials, presented succinctly using a modern layout.


My experience – including accounts from clients, search firms and corporate recruiters – suggests otherwise.

I work with senior business people to produce CVs and other documents and online copy. I help individuals to identify appropriate achievements and experience, use data and financial information effectively and put it in all into context for the reader.


Formal job applications, speculative approaches and networking contact typically start with a written CV. It’s a huge opportunity to showcase experience, skills and match for a role, but one that is often missed because the CV doesn’t do justice to the person.


It’s not only your CV that matters. Presenting your best professional self online is just as important, so I also write LinkedIn profiles – it’s an often one-time chance to come across in the way of our choosing.
