Okay now for something a bit more conventional/typical.
Another recent project was a CV for an account manager who had worked primarily in the telecommunications sector. On this occasion, and in total contrast to the last case study, the client’s original CV was pretty informative, and included some good information and achievements to draw from, and on top of that when we prompted for more achievements, he followed our guidance and advice and provided some more excellent achievements.
Over the years, I have never seen an original CV from a client that sold himself/herself properly, so it is not uncommon for us to have to substantiate client CVs. In fact, we always have to do that. Sometimes (as in case study 1) we are not given a lot to go on, so we need to use our experience and resourcefulness to help the client sell himself/herself to the employer.
By far and away the best scenario is that the client gives us the tools to create the best possible CV himself/herself, and right from the outset.
This pretty much happened in this instance, and because we had plentiful, good-quality raw material we were able to create a high impact account manager CV optimised for the telecommunications sector.
“I am extremely happy with your submission and wish to thank you for the effort you have applied in providing what I can only class a very professional and accurate view of my achievements. “
