Getting ahead of the crowd – how to write the perfect CV!
Are you at a crossroads in your career, do you need some inspiration to move on, get a promotion or even change sectors? Join us for our next networking event where we’ll be sharing some top tips on getting ahead in your career, with particular emphasis on getting your CV noticed. After the talk, members of the I Am Recruiting team will be available to discuss your career aspirations and provide advice and guidance.
Did you know that the average recruiter spends less than 30 seconds looking at each CV, and statistically, less than 2% of all CVs get shortlisted for roles? You don’t need to be reminded that competition for all jobs is fierce, and popular roles can receive hundreds of applications – either CVs, application forms or covering letters – or a combination of all three. But how do you ensure that your application is taken seriously, and you don’t end up with just another rejection?
As well as receiving expert tips from the presentation, the networking aspect of this event will help you to build your career networks with others in the non-profit, professional membership and association sectors.
The ticket includes, drinks, nibbles and guest talk.
