I don’t like CVs. They don’t feel very human do they? There has to be a better way.
Earlier this month I was at The H Club London for a CV surgery, as part of their Head Start initiative where they help connect underrepresented young people to training, experiences and opportunities in the creative industries.
A CV needs to emotionally engage with whoever it is is reading it so it stands out from the rest of the pile. So my advice at the CV surgery was to tell your story, to steer clear of the obvious and to shine a light on who you are and what makes you unique.
