CV and Résumé Writing

Many job seekers make the serious mistake of assuming that people read their CV’s indepth, and actively search for information that helps them to say “yes.” Or alternatively they keep their CV too brief and assume they’ll be able to fill in the detail when they get to the interview.

Just like Goldilocks porridge job applications can be sorted into three piles: Too Hot (over qualified or overselling self without backing up experience); Too Cold (under qualified or understating their skills and experience; and Just Right (a good fit).

“On returning to NZ after more than 10 years away and looking for a change of career direction, my CV was not working and I was finding the NZ style of job interview and behavioral interview questions difficult to respond to. Cassandra helped me to rethink and format my CV and work out a structured approach to behavioral interviews. As a result I am now working again and was offered not 1 but 2 jobs.”
