I know I witter on endlessly about de-cluttering CV's. It makes my life easier (selfish I know) and gets people more interviews. Many of you clearly remain unconvinced as I still see far too many CV's where it's clear the author can't decided what to leave out, so leaves everything in, including the kitchen sink. It ends up a dogs breakfast.
And they wonder why they don't get interviews?
If you won't take it from me, take it from Richard W. He wrote me an email yesterday:
"Martin, A quick thank you for your blog of 19/7/2013 about how to write a CV. I hacked all the superfluous bits out of my daughter’s CV, changed some of the terminology, and within a very short time she found work for a private equity company in Mayfair! After starting work she was told that she got the job on the strength of her CV and the interviews were just to make sure she would fit in. Thanks again, Richard".
If you need a CV format, just email me.
That's it. No preaching. Just listen to Richard.
Richard knows best.
