CV / Resume Writing
One of the best investments you can make toward your career is a professionally written CV. First impressions last, so give it your best. The job market is competitive, so you need a resume that:
- Meets current industry standards
- Is easily scanned by recruiters
- Works within electronic selection systems
- Is targeted and sells you well
At Goal Digger, we don’t believe in templates, every CV is professionally written and customised to the client and the role they are wanting. Our success rate of obtaining an interview first pop is over 90%!
Tailored for YOU
One of the most common forms of CV is the chronological format, where employment history is listed in date order. This isn’t always the best fit for all, particularly older people in the workforce, or those wanting to change career. A skills based CV can be a better fit and this is why it is important to ensure your CV is not a standardised template and is personalised to the industry you are in, or wanting to break into.
At Goal Digger, we ensure your resume is a reflection of you to optimise your chances landing an interview. If you are local, it is great to meet with you to really understand your CV purpose and where you would like to be. If not however, we work via Skype, FaceTime, email and phone too. We have clients from all over the world!
One thing we don’t believe in here at GD HQ is template CV’s. You shouldn’t either! Your CV needs to be as unique as you are and needs to be specialised for the industry or role you are going for.
You can rest assured knowing that you be well informed of the progress of your CV write, however we are in touch. You will have plenty of opportunity to review and provide feedback on the draft document, before it is prepped for use.
One major pitfall when putting forward a job application is using a standardised cover letter. From a recruiter’s point of view, it is immediately noticeable if you haven’t made the effort to prepare one specifically for the company and role you are applying for. If you want them to invest time in you, invest some of your own time and effort first!
At Goal Digger, we can write a cover letter to accompany your CV and application which fits with the package you are putting forward. Again, let’s think about those first impressions and how that impacts your chances of moving closer toward securing an interview.
