We all know that your CV is the first point of contact with a new employer and that you never get another chance to make a first impression. So why do people continue to place so little value on a good CV
There are CV writing firms who offer to help you ‘write your CV in minutes’ – do they think that the rest of your career is worth so little to you. There are others who will offer to provide you with a professionally written CV from only £35. Now common sense tells us that every firm is in business to make a profit. So if the firm is to make a profit, how much out of the £35 can they afford to pay to their CV writers. How much time are they investing in writing your CV Are their CV writers working for peanuts, or are they only spending a very little while on each CV. It seems to me those are the only two alternatives. Either way it seems quite mad to me so think that such an important document is worth so little time and effort.
If you are on a limited budget and feel you need help with writing a CV you will get much better value by investing in a high quality CV writing template. Don’t be tempted to go for a cheap service – if it sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is.
