CV Writing Service in Ireland

When you have identified your career direction the next logical step is to write a CV. Most jobseekers will have an old CV but others are starting from scratch. I would probably say that most jobseekers should start from scratch as 95% of CV’s I review are seriously flawed. Generally speaking jobseekers do not get CV’s or the basics behind good CV writing. Rather than point out the flaws I have identified some scenarios that many jobseekers fall into.

CV writing service – “The ME CV”

When writing your CV did you consider the employer?

It is amazing how many jobseekers fail to consider the recruiter when writing a CV. This will mean that a CV lacks focus and will contain vast amounts of information that is not relevant. Understand the client and what they want before you can truly write a focused CV that makes an impact.

CV writing – “The patched up CV”

Did you write a CV early in your career and then each time you entered the job market just stick on details of your last role?

This is quite common. Many jobseekers prepared a CV early on in their career and just add on additional employment details every time they re-enter the job market. The problem with this CV is that it is often clear how it was formed. A big “tell” is the fact that quite often different formats and fonts are used with the add on details

CV writing service – “The general CV”

Do you have one CV that you send to every job without amending?

Cardinal sin!! Ok if you are a sales rep and you are applying for sales jobs you can argue that one CV will suit all jobs. However within sales employers still have different requirements. But more importantly certain information may be more relevant to certain recruiters such as previous industry experience or even some of your hobbies & interests. Tailor your CV for each job.
