Way back in 2008 whilst working for an Oil and Gas Major in the Sahara Desert I planned to apply for a new position within the company. Of course the first step was to prepare my CV and then upload this to the company career portal. Little did I know that my CV would be scanned by robots (an applicant tracking system - ATS) prior to my Oil and Gas CV being reviewed by a real person. Shortly after this I was bombarded with colleagues asking if I could write their CV's and assist them with their applications.
After a month or so, I had helped over 20 people on my location with their CV's and decided to research the market. I found out that there were not many CV writers who specialised in the Oil and Gas Industry and that most CV writing companies offered a sub standard service (refreshing a CV, copy and paste and not ATS friendly). That's when I launched my first website: Oil Guru. Oil Guru was a specialist Oil and Gas Job board that offered career advice, a CV writing service and eventually transitioned into a virtual learning environment. Over the years I wrote many Oil and Gas CV's and learned a great deal about applicant tracking systems and CV writing best practices.
In 2016 I started a new company called Bigger Fish which offered Personal & Business Branding services to all sectors, including Advanced CV Writing, LinkedIn Optimisation and Web & Graphic Design services. In 2017 I was headhunted by the CV & Interview Advisors and completed their advanced CV Writing Training which further boosted my skillset. Since 2017 I have been dealing with management and executive level clients in the Oil and Gas Industry. I now offer Oil & Gas Professionals a world class CV writing servicealong with 14 years of hands on experience in both upstream and downstream sectors.
I would class myself as unique, having hands on experience of the oil and gas industry and advanced CV writing enables me to fully understand my Oil and Gas CV Clients and deliver a superior CV. I have written 1000's of CV's and many of these have been Oil and Gas related.
