CV Tips

If you want the best CV to give you the advantage in your job applications then there is no doubt that the best way to do this is with a professionally written CV which is tailored to your own individual circumstances and is optimised by seasoned experts specifically for you and your target job.

Estimates vary as to just how much of an advantage a top-quality professionally written CV can give you in the job market. For example, depending upon who you listen to it may boost your job prospects sixfold, tenfold or more. While the estimates vary, the most important thing remains constant; namely the fact that the general consensus is that top-quality professionally written CVs can dramatically boost your job prospects.

CV Examples

Whilst top-quality professionally written CVs can give you the greatest advantage, they do come at a cost (and the best companies charge upwards of £150 + VAT)
Even though this cost is relatively small in the whole scheme of things, and often is a great investment, it is nevertheless prohibitive for some. In which case CV examples can be a very useful source of inspiration.

CV templates, on the other hand, won't help you improve the all-important CV content, but at least they can often help you improve your presentation and CV layout.

CV builders are effectively software which help you build your CV from scratch. Unlike CV examples, they don't really give you much help when it comes to creating content and unlike the professionally written CV option you are on your own, and so at best can expect a DIY CV. This is all well and good if you are only competing against other DIY CVs. However, you don't know who you are competing against, and if you are targeting decent jobs then just be aware that you may well be competing against people using professionally written CVs.
