Even I, can remember trawling around the agencies desperately trying to ‘flog’ my CV to find a great paying job. If only I had tried to put more effort into the starting point I think the journey would have been a lot more fruitful.

– CV Prep

Make sure you are not spending too much time ‘looking for work’ that when you do get an interview your CV lets you down or you didn’t even know your CV was out of date and riddled with errors.
Are you really ready to be interviewed with your CV stand up, and do you even know what you are going to say in your interview?
A few areas, CV and Interviews to think about are:
