Mastering the Art of CV and Interview Technique

 

We coach graduates, returners and anyone wishing to up their CV presentation and interview skills. As we know this is mainly confidence, but I find all candidates benefit from having a good narrative both on paper and in their heads.  I find they walk into interviews and situations taller with a bigger belief in themselves.

'Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.'

  • Is your CV up to date? Have you included everything relevant to the role you are applying to? Have you showcased the best of yourself?
  • What do you say when asked "Tell me about yourself", "Why should we employ you?" or the awful "What are your weaknesses"?

As recruiters, we understand that the job search process can sometimes be demoralising, lengthy, and uncertain. It can also be frustrating when exceptional candidates struggle due to lack of experience and nerves.

Allow us to instill confidence in your abilities and help you effectively showcase them in your CV and during interviews. Each person has an extraordinary life story to share, and we want to ensure that yours is heard.

CV: Your cover letter and CV have the power to make a lasting impression, often within a mere 7 seconds. Mastering this art takes practice and time. Let us help you in crafting a compelling CV that can be tailored to each job application you submit.

LinkedIn: Building a strong, visually appealing, and professional LinkedIn profile is crucial. Equally important is effectively utilising the platform. We will teach you how to optimise your LinkedIn presence.

Interviews: Once you secure an interview and reach this stage, let us guide you in becoming the best version of yourself on the day. Many excellent candidates are overlooked due to poor presentation skills and lack of confidence. We are here to change that.

We provide interview practice sessions both in person (London) and online.

Having just left university I did not have much experience and knowhow with job applications and Katherine at Bold New Recruitment was incredibly useful across all stages. She really helped optimise my CV, bringing out the key points from my work experiences and wording which a recruiter would look for. Then once I got some interviews, we spent a good amount of time going through interview technique and practising mock interviews which was great for my preparation. Key for me was that Katherine really helped me believe in my abilities so that I could go into interviews with confidence, ultimately leading to several successful job offers.
