No two CVs will ever be the same in terms of content, but the styles might be similar. Below are a few CVs that have helped our clients secure positions in the past.
As you can see, the first CV focuses on the client's capabilities and achievements. This reason this CV was very effective for the client was simple: it brought the client's vast range of skills and achievements to the attention of the recruiter within a matter of seconds. The first page is all about marketing the client, and we did this with specific facts and figures.
The second CV - the classic reverse chronological CV - works because it tells the client's career story while highlighting his career progression. Successful career progression within one company over the course of 20 years was the client's strongest selling point, so that was what we focused on. Like the first CV, it demonstrates his achievements and skills, but it does it while drawing attention to his strongest assets.
The third CV was created specifically for networking at a careers event. It is short, concise and it outlines short snippets of information that demonstrate the client's ability to add value. Anything that wouldn't make in instant impact was avoided. This concise style of CV enabled the client to generate meaningful connections with and exciting career opportunities.
