How it works
Our CV Writing Workshops allow individuals to benefit from the expertise of the UK’s best specialist executive CV writing firm at a more accessible price.
Workshop attendees will learn how to evaluate their own skills and achievements and use this information effectively to write a CV - and much more ...
In addition, the workshop will give attendees an overview of the job search process, including using the CV as part of interview preparation, cover letter writing, self-presentation and ‘routes to market’.
The CV writing workshop comprises three key elements:-
Once signed up for a workshop, attendees receive a pre-work pack. This includes details of the workshop itself, example CV templates and a pre-work exercise where attendees do some preliminary work populating the CV template and structuring the basics of their new CV with career history and facts. We also ask attendees to start thinking about some of the key areas we will be exploring on the workshop.
The workshop is a dynamic 3 ½ hour session for a maximum of 12 people with two experienced CV writers from the CV House team. Key topic areas in the workshop are:
The CV and why it is important
CV components and structure
The Achievement based CV
Practical writing session and coaching
The CV House guide to next steps (eg interview planning, job seeking resources, working with headhunters, writing great cover notes/letters)
The post-workshop CV critique and evaluation. After the workshop attendees will complete their CV and send it to the CV House who provide a detailed critique and provide final pieces of advice and suggestions to enable attendees to polish their CV so that it is ready to start working harder for them in their job search.
Attendees are welcome (and encouraged) to bring personal lap top computers with them to the workshop (attendees spend some time working on their own CV to put learnings into practice) although it is not essential.
