Furloughed? Spend an hour updating your CV – a guide

Whilst you are sat at home potentially twiddling your thumbs (or redecorating the lounge) what could be a better time to spend an hour or so improving your CV? So many people have CVs that could be dramatically improved – they are too short, not enough detail, not up to date, not enough factual information, too little content, too little personal details etc.

Take a look at our CV guides – all available at no cost online. https://ten-percent.co.uk/cv-advice/

Articles include: CV Myth – fitting a CV onto two pages, 20 second guide to writing a CV, Adding Extra Value, CV Writing Tips for Senior Solicitors (if you don’t bother reading this it basically says write a lot more!), CV Writing for NQ Solicitors, Skills Sections, 5 Common Mistakes to Avoid, CV Writing for Locum Work, Avoiding Waffly Nonsense, Lying on CVs, Applying for Jobs after 25 years in the same role and many, many more. We have been writing CV guides for almost 20 years so there are quite a few! Full index here – https://ten-percent.co.uk/cv-advice/

We review CVs as well if required but this is a paid service. You do not need to get a CV reviewed though if you spend some time on your CV and follow the advice articles above. For details of our CV review service click here.
