Are you struggling to update your CV? Do you need help to construct an impressive-looking CV so that it stands out more in a crowded job market?
I know how you feel. It can be a daunting and time-consuming task and I’ve always found it hard to get started when trying to upgrade my CV to the next level. I would spend ages playing around with the formatting to make it look just right, to the point where I’d inevitably give up and leave it unfinished until trying again a few months later.
