We have found that a lot of users don’t have much time before a job interview to look for advice and we wanted to solve this problem by offering something fast and easy to access.
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
CV Surgeon, the CV and career expert, has made some updates to a section of their website designed to help candidates perfect their CV writing technique.
As well as offering an array of job interview and career progression advice on their website, the team at CV Surgeon ( http://www.cv-surgeon.co.uk/ ) have always offered CV advice and tips – concentrating on offering advice on the structure, layout and format of a CV.
But due to growing demand from their customers, the team have incorporated more interactive content within the CV writing section of the website. With thousands of candidates all over the country looking for career advice and expert tips, one of the biggest enquiries the CV Surgeon team receive is how to write a CV. From how to gather content for a job application to creating a compelling personal statement and career objective.
The new and improved section contains articles covering a variety of topics and now also hosts video content from the company’s You Tube account. Recent articles covered include How to Make a CV Visible to Recruiters, How to Make a Job Application Stand Out and How to Fill Out a Job Application form.
Each article is designed to offer different advice for a variety of industries but most cover key areas like work experience and education. Career videos are embedded alongside this article content, which allows users to either read through the content or skip straight to a multi media version of it.
Craig Stovold, Director, commented, “We receive hundreds of queries every week from candidates all over the country about how to write a CV. Candidates can freely browse our site for this information but we wanted to improve our offering and deliver something more interactive and compelling. We have found that a lot of users don’t have much time before a job interview to look for advice and we wanted to solve this problem by offering something fast and easy to access. We feel our video offering does just this. Our online video channel means a user can find advice and watch it at the click of a button.”
The CV writing articles compliment other sections of the website including the job interviews and career progression sections. Each of these sections is full of advice for candidates to read – from how to impress employers during a job interview to how to keep them impressed once working for them.
As well as offering advice articles the company’s bespoke CV template service sees hundreds of candidates browsing the site every week. Candidates are able to select a CV template, include a picture and layout their CV in either PDF or Word format. The number of unemployed people in the UK currently sits at 2.61 million so jobseekers across the country need to combine good CV writing skills with attractive CV layouts in order to maximise their chances of standing out from the crowd.
