Let’s face it.

No-one likes compiling their CV.

It’s a drudge, it’s time-consuming and it’s boring.

And that’s why most people end-up doing one of two things…

They pay a company to write it for them, or they just roll with the norm and write the usual chronological, backward-looking CV that bores the pants off most interviewers!

But it doesn’t need to be that way!

This book will teach you how to write a tailored, right-on-the money CV that will significantly raise your chances of making interview in under one hour!

All you need to draft a stand-out CV from scratch. Simply tailor the format, the words and the experience to your own needs and beat the competition out of the park! Achievements, key competencies, transferable skills, types of CV, positive statements, negative words, what employers want, self-assessment, cover letters.

All you have to do is adapt it to YOU!

Don’t pay big money to have someone else write your CV.
