The purpose of My CV Guide is to champion the value of a great CV and to support you in taking ownership of it as a document that you are equipped to write, review and strengthen throughout your working life.
Our approach is developed from years of internal and external recruitment experience, spanning specialist and generalist markets and covering a full range of entry to board level appointments. Influenced by a keen interest in Psychology and behavioural science, the professional CV writing support and free CV advice available is constantly evolving and genuinely intended to be there for anyone and everyone. There are no barriers to finding value and support from My CV Guide, whatever your background, situation or the requirements that you have for a CV.
The recruitment industry is huge. It can be crowded, messy and easy to feel lost and overwhelmed when looking for advice and guidance. My CV Guide is here to cut through the noise and offer you easily accessible and continuously updated content that you can explore as quickly or as deeply as you wish. There are three core beliefs that underpin this approach and that are integral to the services and support we provide.
Your CV has genuine Value
Often critical in the initial stages of a job application or recruitment process, a CV creates a first impression and can be the difference between creating or missing out on genuinely career and life changing opportunities.
Writing a CV is beneficial in itself
The process of writing a CV has numerous benefits beyond the document you produce. It creates self-awareness regarding what is important to you and so would be looking for from future roles and opportunities. It is also perfect preparation for many aspects of common recruitment practices including applications, cover letters and interview.
CV support should be available to all
There should be no barriers to CV guidance and support being available to us. Whatever our backgrounds, circumstances or CV needs, we should feel confident and equipped to write, review and update a CV at anytime.
