Let's face it, most people struggle with the concept of writing a CV regardless of their profession or career direction; not least contractors who have a whole portfolio of assignments to somehow capture in their CV.
Then we have the fact that the current job market is fiercely competitive and a list-based CV devoid of evidence will just not do. Add to this the whole IR35 issue and you have a real conundrum.
Structuring your CV as job seekers in the permanent market do is certainly not going to win you any favours with HMRC, and that's before we start worrying about providing clients with something that will compel them to take an interest in your talents.
In order to provide Contractor Weekly readers with high quality value added resources, we would like to invite you to a FREE one-hour online webinar on Tuesday 11th March at 7.15pm all about writing an authoritative CV for the contract market. This is much more than a boring top ten tips session and will cover the latest thinking around this important topic.
Matt Craven, the UK’s leading authority on contractor / interim CVs, will be delivering this webinar for us. Matt's sessions have been described as "outstanding" and "truly inspirational".
In this fast-paced and engaging webinar you will learn about:
- The 2 most successful formats for Contractor / Interim CVs
- The highly effective 'alternative' case study portfolio format
- How to align your CV with the hot skills in your market
- How to transform your CV into a powerful business case
- How to harness the power of case studies in your CV
- How to create an effective Professional Summary / Elevator Pitch
Most people achieve a significant uplift in interviews as a result of attending these webinars such as the chap below:
"Following the webinar, I have spent the last week re-writing my CV in the format you discussed - then put it online last night. Today, I have received 3 emails from agencies who want to deliver my CV to their clients. Alongside this I have had 2 calls from companies who have invited me in for a chat about vacancies they have within their portfolios. This is more interest that I have had in the last 3 years combined and testament to the success of your webinar!”
