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.
And simply filling out the sections someone told you to include on your CV or all the sections on your LinkedIn profile doesn’t mean it will be effective. What will make it effective is not just having the right format but also having the right content. As Bananarama sang – it’s not what you do, it’s the way that you do it.
In the latest of a series of high quality value added resources for Contractor Weekly readers, we would like to invite you to a FREE one-hour online webinar on Thursday 26th June at 7.15pm all about writing an authoritative CV and LinkedIn profile 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.
Delivered by the UK’s leading authority on contractor / interim CVs, a similar session we ran earlier this year received comments such as: “Excellent presentation - thank you very much” and “thank you – that’s been brilliant”.
In this fast-paced and engaging webinar you will learn about:
- The 2 most successful formats for Contractor / Interim CVs
- How to transform your CV into a powerful business case
- How to align your CV with the hot skills in your market
- How to harness the power of case studies in your CV
- How to create an effective opening Professional Summary / Elevator Pitch
And for the first time, there will be a demonstration of an innovative new way to communicate your commercial proposition to prospective clients, which really brings your LinkedIn profile to life!
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!”
