The CV Toolkit

Prove you’re the person they need to hire

CV Toolkit

You need a new CV that lets you sail past the competition to get your next role. You know that competition for jobs is at an all-time high, with stories of redundancies in the news every day and you don’t want your job search to drag on for endless months.

You know your CV isn’t up to scratch (it’s the same one you’ve always had – you usually just update it when you need to by adding on your most recent role) but:

You don’t want to pay hundreds of pounds to a CV writer to write a CV for you

It feels hard to sell yourself in your CV

You want what you write to feel genuine. You don’t want to seem cold, fake, or egotistical

You need to know how to beat the competition and be invited for interviews

Introducing the CV toolkit

An online, self-study CV writing course that will teach you how to write a successful CV to open the door to your next job. 

Most online CV courses tell you how to structure a CV but they don’t teach you how to write it. This is where my CV Toolkit is different. I take you by the hand, sharing all of the CV tips, tools and strategies I’ve learnt from writing 100s of successful CVs. You will learn:

Which CV template is right for you

The exact words and phrases you should be using

How to identify your strengths, skills and achievements

How to sell themselves with confidence

How to tailor your CV to the exact roles you’re applying for

How to beat electronic automatic CV sifting systems
