"I had been looking for work for about two months and have dealt with several agencies, from the time I was contacted by your recruitment consultant I was very impressed with the professionalism, efficiency and the whole experience felt very personable. He did exactly what he said, and I got a new job which I love!." Gary W, Internal Account Manager (Fujitsu)
How to write a CV The days have gone when recruiters can spec you out or arrange interviews with no CV. A professional CV is an integral part of any recruitment process and we are often asked how to write a CV.
When I bought my house I knew the minute I walked through the front door that it was the house for me. When I meet certain people I instantly like them, without even talking to them. My experience has taught me not to judge a book by its cover. Or in this instance not to judge a person by their CV. Some of the finest sales people I have met have no idea how to write a CV - some are awful! After all we're sales people right, not administrators!
I would love to sit here and say the world we live in is non-judgemental, but first impressions count, and when the hiring manager is glancing through the CV's, the ones that look the part are the ones that will be called in for interview. You will miss out on opportunities however good a sales person you are if your CV isn’t up to scratch.
Below is a brief overview of how to write a CV (the CV you will need is dependent upon your level of experience and desired role). Your Consultant has experienced the good and the not so good, we are here to help you all the way through the recruitment process, all you have to do is ask!
I am a focused outgoing individual who aims to succeed at everything I do and is highly motivated by sales success, with a determination to be the best and to meet and exceed challenges and targets given to me. I have the attributes to work in a field based role, either in account management or new business.
