Brilliant CV Summary

Brilliant CV: What employers want to see and how to say it by Jim Bright

Everything that made Brilliant CV the number one CV book in the UK is here again - it's still based on solid research into what recruiters really want to see - and now it's even more useful with two completely new sections: 1. How to deal with selection criteria. This is especially important for public sector jobs (civil service, teaching, etc) where selection criteria are central to the application process. 2. A whole new chapter on CV makeovers. This chapter shows in detail how to apply the CV principles. A wide range of different CVs are critiqued in detail, giving you the reader an appreciation of formatting, content and layout issues. Then the re-worked CVs are presented showing the dramatic improvement. In addition the whole book has been thoroughly revised to include new research findings and updated web links. The number one CV book in the UK has just got better!
