Challenge

Alexander has had a lengthy career in construction. He had not needed to apply online to jobs very much, and found applying online didn't get him as many interviews as applying with a paper CV used to.

How Vincent, a CVNow Writer, Helped Alexander

There are a lot of ways the job application process has changed since Alexander started working. For example, his specific skills were worded in long phrases and sentences and not into keyword couples like "Hazard Prevention" or "Accident Investigation." Shorter and more succinct phrases containing keywords are smoother to read and better to feed through sorting computers these days. While it seems counterintuitive, recommendations and referrals are now usually reserved for the interview stage of the application and can actually hamper a CV's effectiveness. I went over all these new trends with him and tidied up his problems.

Secondly, his CV was far too long and not easy on the eyes at all (apologies Alexander!). His old CV required a lot of reading to learn what Alexander was all about, and failed the 30-second test -- which is the amount of time you get to impress that HR rep. I worked from the top down on the layout and content, starting off with a crystal clear header and then adding everything you need to know about Alexander in the first half of the first page. Nicely formatted and impressive career bullet points filled out the rest. The result was a clear narrative that was both interesting to read and also very complimentary of Alexander's skillset.
