As you can imagine, at CV Consultants we receive many CVs to improve. One of the things which is evident is that most people undersell themselves, and that many people struggle writing a good strong profile.
This is highly significant, because the first part of your CV is extremely important, and if you don't make a good enough first impression then the rest of it may not get read.
please see below for more tips...
1>Don't confuse your personal profile with resume / CV objectives. These are completely different things.
2> Try not to overcomplicate things. The whole purpose of the personal profile is that it gets read by the employer and entices him/her. If your personal profile is too long and complex then it is going to deter employers, not attract them.
3> Make it relevant to your target job.
4> Use positive action words
6> If in doubt get professional help
Personal profiles are notoriously difficult to write, so it isn't too surprising that people struggle with them, indeed some professional writers also struggle with them. However, at CV consultants we have vast expertise writing powerful, well targeted, optimised profiles to make employers sit up and take notice of you. So if you want to make a good impression then you have come to the right place.
