What I Help With

CV Writing

Advice on how to structure and layout your CV. This covers key things to include and information to leave out, as well as advice on how to maximise your experience. We can create and rewrite your CV if needed.

Applications and Cover Letter Advice

The most important part of a job application is the cover letter and this is the part people often find the hardest. Here you will receive guidance on how to structure the cover letter and how to maximise your experience. This will increase your chances of being asked for interview.

Career Advice 

Getting advice from someone who is neutral (not a partner, family member, colleague) is essential to be able to get a clear view of what is right thing to do. The sessions will provide focus, insight and guidance on how to progress your career.
