3 Convenient Ways to Boost Your CV


By Melissa Hamilton

Thanks to the current pandemic, in many ways the world of work has changed more in the past six months than ever before.

Many of us are working from home, others have roles that are significantly different due to changes in operational priorities and some of us have unfortunately lost jobs which we’ve had for some time, with all the inherent stress this brings.

One thing’s for sure – as we reassess our life-work balance it’s probably time to dig out our CVs and make doubly sure that they’re of sufficient quality to support our next career move.

If you’re struggling to know where to start, these three convenient ways to boost your CV will help you move forward.

1. Re-order your CV

You might already have all of the information on your CV necessary to apply for a new role, but it’s just buried in the body of your resume where recruiters will struggle to find it.

So editing your CV to put the most relevant info front and centre is an easy way of making it through that vital first sift and progressing towards an interview. For instance, if your more recent job doesn’t reflect a natural progression to your desired role but your training and qualifications do, switching to a skills-based CV like this Prospects example, rather than a chronological CV, can help you hit the sweet spot.

2. Make a video CV

Recruiters don’t just hire based on academic qualifications, skills and experience – cultural fit is also vital.

And unless you’re a highly skilled writer who can paint a detailed picture of your personality with words alone, it’s hard for an electronic document to reflect how well you’ll fit with an existing team.

However, video CVs from Vibio are easy to make – simply enter your resume details, record a brief, bright introductory message and the site does all the hard work for you. This super service is free and will help you stand out from the crowd, so what have you got to lose?

3. Study online 

If you’ve decided that the best way for you to grab a promotion you’ve had your eye on or to switch careers to something entirely new is earning a degree, but your work and/or family commitments preclude you from attending a physical university, don’t despair as there’s a solution.

Online degrees from ARU Distance Learning can be studied in your own time so it’s easy to flex them around childcare and current work commitments and you’ll still graduate with a vocational employer-friendly degree in anything from digital management to football coaching or project management. 
Boost your CV with any of the above techniques and you’ll soon be well on your way to your dream job – you can thank us later!
