A month within the lifetime of CV Shed

How can it’s that point of yr already? Welcome again behind the scenes of CV Shed as I conduct the standard annual assessment of what I’ve been as much as just lately. One factor’s for certain – it’s been busy!

CVs for personal prospects

CV writing enterprise has been hectic just lately and I’ve had extra orders from personal prospects than I can ever keep in mind having earlier than. These orders are the guts of my enterprise – I like not simply presenting prospects with a CV that may assist them to land interviews, but additionally listening to how assured it makes them really feel once they learn them.

Only a number of CVs that I’ve written just lately embrace: a Content material Author, a Gross sales and Advertising Specialist, a Communications Director, a postgraduate scholar, an import-export enterprise proprietor, a Head of Studying and Improvement, a Technical IT Challenge Supervisor and a Crew Administrator.

Modifying blogs

On the finish of final yr, I turned the Editor of a UK weblog centered on CVs and job search subjects. Since then, the shopper has requested me to take over two of their US blogs as nicely. The three blogs whole over 2,000 posts up to now and I’m step by step going over the previous posts to carry them as much as scratch while including 22 new posts every month from my marvellous staff of writers on either side of the Atlantic.

I’ve additionally been enhancing weblog posts and newsletters for a serviced condo firm (suppose Airbnb for the chief market), which has been actually fascinating and a good way to step exterior my common subject material. It’s jogged my memory how a lot I like engaged on the enhancing aspect of my enterprise!

Writing articles

The serviced condo firm has additionally requested me to put in writing weblog posts for them – once more that is one thing I’ve had nice enjoyable doing. Because it wants extra analysis than my common subjects, I’m discovering out loads of fascinating details about locations I’ve by no means been to!

On prime of that, I proceed to put in writing posts for the
CV Shed weblog – partly to assist potential prospects and jobseekers and partly simply because I like doing it! I additionally write the odd put up for the UK job search weblog that I edit, too.

CV critiques

A couple of weeks again I revamped my
CV assessment service and it’s proved overwhelmingly well-liked! A number of folks have taken me up on the supply of a free CV assessment – they’re a good way to lift consciousness of CV Shed and convey new prospects into the enterprise, while nonetheless providing worth to those who can’t stretch to a full skilled re-write.

CV contracts

I’ve been serving to one other CV author to create CVs for a authorities contract that she has. These CVs are usually for unemployed folks aiming to get again into work, so it’s been very rewarding to have the ability to make a distinction to their job search.

Workers profiles

I nonetheless work with a building firm to put in writing workers profiles for his or her bidding packs. The quantity has dropped since I began – I initially had each worker on my to-do record! Now the majority of the work is completed and I solely want to arrange profiles for his or her new starters as they step into the enterprise.

Social media

I proceed to put up repeatedly on
Fb and
Instagram – comply with me for brand spanking new weblog posts, infographics, CV suggestions and updates about CV Shed.


For causes I can’t fully fathom, I made a decision in the summertime – virtually on a whim – that I’d do a Grasp’s diploma. I’m now finding out in the direction of an MA in Utilized English at Nottingham College. Fortunately, it’s a distance studying course, and tremendous versatile, so it’s becoming very well round my different commitments. One project accomplished… 17 extra to go!

I’ve additionally grow to be an authorized member of the British Affiliation of CV Writers and repeatedly attend their Lunch & Study periods. Though we’re technically opponents, everyone seems to be tremendous supportive and it’s an amazing useful resource for each discovering new shoppers and referring current shoppers onwards. It is also reassuring for my prospects to know that they are working with an accredited CV author, in what has grow to be a really overcrowded trade.

Can I show you how to?
