Professional CV Template

This is part of our series How To Write A CV

If you have read through this website, particularly the entries with regards to how to double the jobs you could apply for, and at a higher rate of interview and hence employment success; then you will know that the answer to employment is not just a CV.

However, it is fairly obvious that much as though we can provide much good information, some people who read this website and blog just want to apply for jobs, and think they just need a CV to get on with it.

From statistics I have measured from our own clients before they engage our Professional CV service, I can not agree with that approach for many. This is as a result of a combination of:

  • The Click to reject result of the job board driven market
  • The Lost Art of the Job Search by professionals returning to the job search after a long period

These two factors have in combination resulted in job search statistics of less than a decade ago of 1 in every 10 job applications resulting in an interview, are now at best at 1 in 25.

Hence, my advice on templates is, only use them in the following circumstances:

  • You have a job lined up, where all you have to do is complete the paperwork exercise
  • You are making an internal move on promotion

Outside of these, as I have said in other parts of this website, if your job application ratio falls below 1 interview in 10 job applications, you should take that as a sign that you need Professional CV help.

The greatest problem with templates is that in front of the employer/recruiter, you will look just like a photocopy of someone – or possibly everyone – else’s CV. You hence need to customise them.

Our Professional CV template pack hence includes both templates, as well as guidelines on customisation. We provide the Professional CV templates for free, but we do ask that you subscribe to our weekly Newsletter, which will provide you with extra help in your job application. Before you ask, we don’t believe in spam, and never sell our list:

You are angels! My CV was been turned from a four page long and rambling life story to a job winning document - yes, I am now employed. I have no hesitation in recommending your services.
Barbara, HR Professional.

I am writing to thank you for your professional approach. Although successful in business, I realise now that a professional CV makes all the difference to gaining a job, however impressive my previous achievements are. I now have both a focused initial CV and a referenced and structured portfolio to back up my career achievements, which with a dynamic approach resultantly helped me to secure a number of interviews.
Graham, Divisional Managing Director.
