CV Writing Service in Walsall

For anyone who has read a previous blog should know by now how passionate I am about recruitment and coaching which is useful considering it’s what my I do for a living!


One of the pieces of work I have recently been involved is a interview boot camp which we have ran for universities, colleges and individuals. When we do feedback or question and answer sessions at the end of the day one of the questions I’m always asked is how do I stand out from the crowd when so many people are going for the same role?


This is a fair question. There is plenty of free advice on line at the moment but each website has conflicting information on what makes a good CV? How should I approach interviews? What preparation should I do? How should I use LinkedIn?


I am going to add my own free advice at the end of this blog but what I generally believe and what I tell my clients is that we don’t invest enough time in developing ourselves or our careers. In a consumer driven the market  we invest in homes, gadgets, holidays , clothes, social life but do you invest enough time in the one thing that will help your income?


If you are looking for a job at the moment, I know that it’s tough out there. I work with clients and organisations who are also finding it hard especially when research is telling us that there are an average of 20 applications to every vacancy.  


Your CV is the starting point with any potential employer and is where you need to make an impact. With so many applications for one role at the moment your CV has 45 seconds on average with a potential employer who may be looking at your skills it is vital then that you get this right but the startling fact is 90% of us could improve our CV’s or need a complete CV makeover!!

LinkedIn the business social network site now has nearly 150 members worldwide and experts believe will be as important as the CV within the next three years and many of us still only have the most basic of profiles.

At this point I want to tell you about a new service that Rainsbury Recruitment & Coaching has launched which I believe will really help you with your job search. This is a shameless plug for my business but every client I have worked with has got a role within three months so hopefully you will see it as an investment in your career.

As promised my top five tips for job hunting this month:


1. Look in detail at the role you are applying for. Think about the key skills the business is asking you for and tailor your CV around it.


2. Don’t put your date of birth on your CV. Age discriminations laws have made this no longer necessary and businesses should not ask for it on your application.


3. Think about the 45 second rule. Make an impact with your CV but make it relevant to the reader.


4. If you are not on LinkedIn then you should be. 90% of all recruiting line managers and recruiters are on the site and this is your opportunity to connect with them.


5. Take the time to fill in as much information on your profile as possible. This is an opportuntuity for you to sell yourself to recruiters and potential employers.
