    Just download a Cv template and fill in the blanks with your own stuff

    Not too daunting.

    I had mine re-written by a company, it reads like total ******** now but until that point I didnt even get a reply, I start a new job next month.

    It was through CV library but It wasn't a nice process to go through

    Have you thought about doing a private video having a chat about your experience, a bit unconventional but depends what sort of work you’re looking for. (Probably don’t swear.)

    I’ve never known anyone say they enjoy going through CVs so something different might go down well.

    Avoid the online ones like the plague John.

    There was a lass that done a CV writing service on one of the Site Welding/Pipefitter pages I belong to on Facebook. I’ll see if I’ve got her email address.

    If you want a copy of a CV to copy from, I’ll happily send mine over.

    When you've done it send it through to me if you want. My better half was in HR for years so can have a look over it if you like.

    I only read the cv`s that are on one page, they really do need to be very short and to the point.

    Does that not depend on the position? Mine is on 2 pages, to make it any smaller would mean missing stuff off

    It was discussed at the out to lunch bunch monthly meet, we were all in agreement that no one reads the telephone book type CV`s. Keep it short and factual, no one cares if you won the egg and spoon race at school or what you did on your gap year. I have never had to write a CV but I am sure if I did I could get it onto one page. I get the " professionally written" CV`s to read on a regular basis and I can assure you my eyes glaze over after about five minutes.

    strange you say that but all of my jobs have been a covering letter explaining what I can and can’t do. A CV will just show you where Iv been not what I can do

    ALL of my jobs have been from finding somewhere and knocking on there door

    I find it interesting looking at it from the other side, my CV reads like complete nonsense but with my own I wasn't getting anywhere

    I suppose looking to change career at nearly 40 just as the C19 started didn't help either

    It really depends on the company big "professional" firms like gumpth

    Normal companies dont.
