It can be very daunting when you sit down and start to write a CV. What do you add and what do you leave out. At PA Tips and Secretarial Support, we have created an informative booklet to help you write a CV. We have included the different types of CV for your reference. What you need to think about and how you should present it.
When applying for a new job as a PA or Secretary it is vitally important to ensure that you make a good impression. You only have a few seconds to form that impression. It is your responsibility to ensure that the impact you make is accurate, professional and significantly superior to your counterparts.
The How to write a CV booklet is designed to help you get the best out of those few seconds.
We want you to think about the information you are about to hand to your potential new employer. It is essential to think about the style and format of the first impression. We want you to get to that all-important interview.
Another way to think of a CV is as a marketing tool. In this case, you are marketing you. The skills you have collected over the many years of working in an office environment. Your presentation and attention to detail. All of these sales tools are in your hands. You have the opportunity to present those tools to your new employer. Remember, your potential employer has never heard of you, but you will have heard of them. You will have researched the business before you sent in your CV. Checking out their website, talking to family and friends. You are in a much better position than you think.
Remember when you write a CV you are giving an employer the opportunity to meet you and find out what you have to offer. They are in the lucky position of meeting you and they are after the skills you have to offer. They need you just as much as you need them. Good luck and please let PA Tips and Secretarial Support, how you did.
