It is critical that Consultant and professional candidates have a CV that sets them apart from the competition.
You must never assume that other people appreciate the complexities of your role and the positive impact you have had on an organisation.
Your achievements need to be quantified. Perception is reality in recruitment, the person who presents themselves the best on paper and subsequently in interviews secures the contract .
So many people at your level simply don’t have the time to invest in preparing the CV, worse still they undersell themselves. This is magnified when you are delivering short term contracts or turning projects around.
