CV Workshop – How to write a great CV

CV templates, How to write a great CV, CV samples – all was discussed at my CV Workshop in the Dublin City Library last night.  Great attendance of over 70 people – all keen to pick up tips for writing a CV and Cover Letter to get them an interview.  Well done to all who attended – proactivity such as this is always rewarded.  It was a lively session with lots of great questions.  Many questions centered around how to explain gaps on CVs and how to manage to get the CV down to two pages of great content. My three key messages of making sure your CV is :

  • Skills Based and targeted at the job in question
  • Visually Clear
  • Making me Want to Meet You

was well received by all.  Well done and thanks again to all who took the initiative to attend.
