myfirstcv.comRising tuition fees, record youth unemployment and lack of job opportunities are some of the harsh realities facing the global economy today. With all these growing problems, the last thing you want to worry about is how to write a good CV. The importance of a good CV is well documented and could be the difference between you getting a job or not.

A CV is an important “marketing document” created to sell your skills, experiences and personal attributes to a potential employer. It is designed to do one thing and that is to get you an interview-to get your foot through the door so to speak. If it doesn’t, then the CV has failed to do its job. On average it is estimated that an employer only spends about 20-30 seconds glancing at a CV, which means that you have to grab their attention very quickly. will give you the knowledge and skill to do this so you know what to put in, what not to put in and what kind of spin to put on your CV to ensure that your CV stands out from the crowd and ultimately gives you the best chance of securing that all important interview. After all, you know yourself better than anyone else.
