Hello and welcome to The CV Righter blog!! In this first blog post I want to introduce myself and the business to you all. Firstly, if you have read my website and linkedin profile then you will know a little about me – you may also know me from my PM or recruitment past, I am not new to writing blog posts, narrating podcasts, attending PPM events and being fairly high profile in the PPM community. After nearly 5 years specialising in Project Management recruitment I decided to take a leap of faith into an area which has been of interest to me for a number of years. Working in recruitment I have spoken to so many PM professionals who are frustrated at not getting the job they thought they were ideal for, only to face the realisation that their CV does not meet the minimum criteria, never mind dazzle the reader – despite having all the right experience. Time and time again I too would be frustrated by the best CVs attracting attention not the best candidates. So here I am, offering a service dedicated to ensuring that PPM professionals get a service which is tailored to their needs, with results which attract the right kind of attention.
– Offering a one to one specialism which meets your needs
– Understanding what you do and making sure others can understand this too by using language uniformly recognised by employers in the PPM domain
– Providing advice on job applications and if required, tailoring your CV to a specific role
– Supplying a quick turnaround service for those who have just spotted the job of their dreams and need to hit a deadline
Writing a CV isn’t rocket science – putting the right message across in an ever-changing niche area of the job marketplace can be. I have spoken to countless project professionals at varying levels of hierarchy and all say the same thing, they can write business cases and extensive reports etc but find it incredibly difficult to write their own CV. Why stress about it – let me write it for you.
