A month within the lifetime of CV Shed

How can or not it’s that point of yr already? Welcome again behind the scenes of CV Shed as I conduct the normal annual evaluate of what I’ve been as much as lately. One factor’s for certain – it’s been busy!

CVs for personal prospects

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

Only a choice of CVs that I’ve written lately embrace: a Content material Author, a Gross sales and Advertising and marketing Specialist, a Communications Director, a postgraduate pupil, an import-export enterprise proprietor and a Workforce Administrator.

Modifying blogs

On the finish of final yr, I grew to become the Editor of a UK weblog centered on CVs and job search subjects. Since then, the consumer has requested me to take over two of their US blogs as nicely. The three blogs complete over 2,000 posts to date 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 crew of writers on each side of the Atlantic.

I’ve additionally been modifying weblog posts and newsletters for a serviced condominium firm (suppose Airbnb for the manager market), which has been actually attention-grabbing and a good way to step outdoors my ordinary material. It’s jogged my memory how a lot I really like engaged on the modifying aspect of my enterprise!

Writing articles

The serviced condominium firm has additionally requested me to jot down weblog posts for them – once more that is one thing I’ve had nice enjoyable doing. Because it wants extra analysis than my ordinary subjects, I’m discovering out loads of attention-grabbing details about locations I’ve by no means been to!

On prime of that, I proceed to jot down posts for the CV Shed weblog – partly to assist potential prospects and jobseekers and partly simply because I really 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 evaluate service and it’s proved virtually overwhelmingly well-liked! A lot of folks have taken me up on the provide of a free CV evaluate – they’re a good way to lift consciousness of CV Shed and convey new prospects into the enterprise, while nonetheless providing worth to people 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 typically 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.

Employees profiles

I nonetheless work with a building firm to jot down workers profiles for his or her bidding packs. The amount 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 usually on
Fb and
Instagram – observe me for brand spanking new weblog posts, infographics, CV suggestions and updates about CV Shed.


For causes I can’t totally fathom, I made a decision in the summertime – virtually on a whim – that I’d do a Grasp’s diploma. I’m now learning 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 a licensed member of the British Affiliation of CV Writers and usually attend their Lunch & Study periods. Though we’re technically opponents, everyone seems to be tremendous supportive and it’s an important useful resource for each discovering new shoppers and referring current shoppers onwards.
