Is Your CV Really Selling You?

Is Your CV Really Selling You?

“Constructing a CV that sells you, without boasting or showing off, isn’t an easy task.”

It’s too simple to think of your CV as simply an overview of your career. For a recruiter to give it a second glance among the hundreds of other CVs they have to go through, you need to start thinking of your CV as your personal sales document. Does your CV show you to your best advantage? Does it show what you’re truly capable of? Does it tell a recruiter what you can bring to a role that other applicants can’t offer?

Constructing a CV that sells you, without boasting or showing off, isn’t an easy task. How can you show a recruiter what you’ve achieved during your career, without sounding arrogant? CV Knowhow are experts in CV writing and have written successful CVs for senior professionals in every industry you can imagine (and some you can’t!). We know how to construct concise, high-impact CVs which let your expertise shine through.

It all starts with a consultation with your personal CV Consultant. We understand that most people aren’t comfortable with shouting about their achievements and singing their own praises on paper, so during the consultation we’ll ask in-depth questions to ensure that we can really get to the bottom of where your strengths lie.

We’ll help you to identify your unique selling point, or USP, as well as discussing any career highlights and achievements. We’ll also chat through your most recent roles to ensure we capture the key information.

We aim to create a CV that positions you as a successful leader and highlights your unique skills and capabilities. The information we get during the consultation, combined with any pertinent details from your original CV and current LinkedIn profile, will form the basis of your first draft. We welcome feedback on the draft and will work with you to ensure we produce a document that really reflects the best version of you. You’re able to contact your consultant at any time in the process to add information or request changes.
