Updated: Jun 19, 2022

Why do some professionals struggle to land interviews, while others sail serenely into the sunset of success? Here are 3 elements you can add to your CV / Resume to help land interviews fast.

It's all about marketing and brand perception... You need to know where you are, where you want to be and who the target audience is.

Then write a CV / Resume that substantiates your ability to resolve issues and deliver business value to a potential employer. Your personal brand is who you are professionally, how others perceive you and your reputation.

✅ A value proposition statement and profile written in a feature followed by benefit style can help build your personal brand. These are key elements used when marketing and selling products and can be translated for personal use to build a CV / Resume that delivers results.

✅ Key Achievements that substantiate your skill set and business value, including a description of the situation, the actions you took and a result including qualitative and quantitative metrics.

✅ Recommendations - these act as a review of your service. Reviews are used in business to help build trust and sell products. I suggest strategically gathering recommendations on LinkedIn and using 2-3 at the bottom of your CV / Resume to build trust.

You also need to ensure your CV / Resume is error free and the grammar is perfect. I suggest installing Grammarly - a free AI-powered writing assistant to help you compose bold, clear and mistake-free writing online.
