CV Review: 2-hour Skype (or GoToMeeting) Consultation *MOST POPULAR SERVICE*

We receive your CV and arrange a 2-hour online consultation to go through your document in detail. During the Skype call Frank will make suggestions on what to leave in/take out, how to craft a powerful ‘Professional Profile’ introductory paragraph, how to improve the bullet points for each role and how to best utilise language, punctuation and formatting to create a document that captures the imagination of its reader.

The purpose of the CV should not only be to get you the interview but also to create a confirmation bias where the interviewer spends the interview confirming what (s)he already knows: that you are the best person for the job.

CV Rewrite: 3-hour Consultation via Skype (or GoToMeeting) + 2-day Rewrite

Upon completion of our online call Frank Torpey will spend 2 days rewriting and reformatting your CV, maximising impact whilst minimising word count. Of course getting all of the pertinent details onto the page is vitally important but, the CV needs to be composed in a concise, sharp writing style which omits unnecessary words and phrases and packs a punch, sentence after sentence, line after line. This takes time. Lots of time. Is it worth it? Absolutely.

Often this may be the differentiator between your CV and those of other candidates. It is important to think about the reader and his/her circumstances… Most likely, the first person to receive your CV will be a HR manager; someone with limited time on his/her hands and, quite possibly, a limited knowledge of the true requirements for the successful execution of the role.

The average time given to a first reading of a CV is 20-40 seconds: every line must encourage the reader to continue to the next line or it is game over; your CV is in the shredder. Why do we spend two days writing, rewriting, editing and reediting, again and again and again and again? To ensure that the reader stays engaged and reads to the end and, to ensure that (s)he sees your value in every word on the page.

Executive Options

Exec* CV Review: 4-hour Skype (or GoToMeeting) Consultation

When you are confident in your writing, editing, formatting and presentation skills this may be the preferable option. You may have read many CVs in your senior management roles and, if so, you may have noticed that the best CVs paint a picture; it is possible to visualize the candidate operating in the work environment. The CV tells a story: you can decipher and follow the person’s high-achiever pattern throughout.

The objective in this exercise is to ensure that your CV captures your story and paints that picture. This is achieved through the detail. Of course, it is neither wise nor possible to include everything: Frank’s role is firstly to capture the essence of your career journey and to hone this to the point where the maximum impact is achieved. Getting all of the pertinent details onto the page is vitally important but, equally important is that the CV is composed in a concise, sharp writing style, omitting unnecessary words and phrases and packing a punch, sentence after sentence.

This takes time; lots of time. Is it worth it? Absolutely. This is often the differentiator between your CV and those of fellow candidates.

Will what got you to your current level get you to the next? It is critical to establish that you understand and appreciate the difference between what you have achieved to date and the challenge you wish to embrace. At executive level one can expect an appropriate level of time to be invested in the application process – commensurate with the importance of the role to the organisation – whether by an executive recruiter or the person with whom you wish to work in the future: so, it is important that you have invested sufficiently in crafting your CV to warrant the reader’s time and effort. The essence of what your career means to you, what drives you, where your strengths lie and what you hope to accomplish in the future needs to be apparent: this can be achieved through capturing your achievements, the initiative you have demonstrated, your motivational drivers and, your innate, specific-knowledge and self-management skills – in short, your high-achiever pattern – in a format that maximises readability and hence, the reader’s interest.
