Most professional CV writers will deliver you a pretty professional CV; one that is better than you’d write yourself anyway. But as a person who takes immense pride in being a professional CV writer, I aim higher than that for you. I take the trouble to interview you personally and to understand the deliverables in your targeted role. I then write a professional CV that will sell you into that role.
But, many people, regardless of whether they are working with a Professional CV writer or not aim too low.
Why do people aim too low?
• It is a deliberate strategy as they think their qualifications or experience won’t take them to the next step or will present them as being “over qualified”.
• They have a lack of self-belief ─ particularly after redundancies.
• They are “desperate” to get a job.
• They listen to poor advice.
• Their CV lets them down. Their CV simply doesn’t capture their strengths and present them in a highly compelling manner.
How do I help you to Aim High?
During my unique interview process, we discuss your targeted roles and I elicit key skills and achievements from you. These are your “selling points”. After 14 years of being a professional CV writer, I can tell if a client is aiming too low and we have a heart-to-heart discussion about that. I pull out of them skills they never really knew they had. They get a sense of their true value and leave the interview feeling reinvigorated and confident.
When I present their CV to them, I get comments like, “Wow, I would employ me.” Clients leave “armed and dangerous” as I put it. What a great state to be in when you are aiming high!
A Case History of Aiming High.
I did a CV for a person in the IT industry. His brief was to take the next step up. On his own he had decided he needed to aim higher. The interview fully hinged around this point. The CV delivered. He was delighted. BUT. He spent the next three months aiming at jobs that were below the level of the CV we had strategically prepared. He failed to get one interview.
He then took a deep breath and aimed high. He applied for three roles at the level his CV was targeted at. He went to three interviews and was offered three jobs. One at double his salary!
