Slightly off topic, but has anyone used a cv writing service ? I dont want to spend £50-£75.
I am banging out my CV, with little success and i am starting to think maybe the CV is lacking.
Or any tips on making a CV stand out
Local job centres will also do a cv review that will help them identify positives, negatives and suggestions ..away from the scummers taking the piss , the local job centre offers far more than most realise
The job centre will offer you more if you have no qualifications.
If you have qualifications you are f****d
because they can't place you in a job.
The woman whom looked at my CV said she "felt ashamed"
that she couldn't get me a job and that I should tone it done "a lot"
because I am "over qualified"
for the jobs on offer.
BTW - I do tailor it for every job I apply for...

"That's for the cleaners," he said through gritted teeth. He didn't want to do it, but he had deadlines to meet and didn't have the time to read them all.
Alas, he hired a prat whom lasted a week
