Have you been applying for job after job with no interviews?
It can really start to wear you down and eventually you begin to believe you are unemployable.
But what if I told you it’s your CV / Résumé that’s the problem?
There are no country-specific formats, there is no such thing as an official ”New Zealand or Canada format” CV/Résumé . It just needs to be no longer than three pages, contain no colour, no fancy formatting, no photos, no personal information such as marital status and children, no school history and no nonsense.
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY
You don’t want long, rambling paragraphs – you want short, sharp bite-sized bits of information so the reader can create an accurate mental image of you working at their place.
What do you have to offer employers?
Make sure your CV/Résumé is selling you accurately!
