This 3 minute video provides advice on creating a new Job Profile, based on one of the existing 1,500 Job Profiles in the Tool.

Click here to view the list of over 1,500 Job Profiles you can customise, to create a new job profile.





Student CV (below degree level) or creating a CV for the first time

If after watching the 5 minute ‘Executive Overview’ video, you are not able to create a professional quality CV, please watch the in-depth 24 minute video below, to understand the full functionality of the Tool.

Students should select ‘you are creating a student / college CV’ when prompted, as this will ensure you create your CV in the correct format, i.e. your Education is placed before your Career History.

It is imperative students and jobseekers who have NOT had any paid employment, ensure:

  • They effectively promote any Work Experience or Voluntary work, to a standard potential employers will appreciate and value
  • And this experience is listed in the Career History section of your CV (which will be automatically renamed ‘Work Experience’ if you have not had any paid employment).

Everyone has done some voluntary work i.e. helped raise money for their educational establishment, community, football team etc. via school fate, organise events, leaflet distribution, made fashion accessories, make-up artist for family and friends, or cared for family member etc.

Even if all you did was invest ½ day helping your school raise money at the school fate; tell potential employers with passion, how you effectively did this and the impact you made. The ‘how to create a new job profile’ video details how you would create a new job profile using an existing job profile. Click here to view the list of over 1,500 Job Profiles you can customise, to create a new job profile.

For the above example, you would customise the ‘Charity Fund-Raiser’ job profile, by customising the bullets within the existing profile, to 5-7 impactful and dynamic statements, reflecting how you organised, promoted, worked effectively in a team, generating £x sales for the school, and then rename the ‘Charity Fund-Raiser’ job profile to ‘School Fund-Raiser’.

It’s that simple and watch your confidence grow, as you speak about this invaluable experience at a job interview.




Graduate CV:

Please watch the 10 minute video below to understand why the graduate Key Skills section is in a different format, as the CV Builder tool does not pre-populate this section with Key Skills, as employers have requested us not to do this.

Graduate CVs are normally a maximum of 2 pages, however some Employers (mostly financial or banking) request a 1 page CV, therefore it is advisable to check with the Employers before sending your CV.

If you are creating a graduate IT/Technical CV, it is highly recommended you also view the IT/Technical CV training video, as you may wish to insert the ‘Areas of Expertise’ and/or ‘Technical Skills’ sections into your CV and include 1 or 2 Key Skills or Achievements (remember to delete the IT Skills section on page 2, if you have used this option).




IT/Technical CV:

Please watch the 4 minute training video below.

Select ‘you are creating an IT/Technical CV’ from the select CV Style box, for the right format: ‘Areas of Expertise’ and ‘Technical Skills’ replace the Key Skills section.

Your CV must be focused on your technical skills, as well as the actions and results, rather than just listing your role and experience i.e. explain what action was taken and what happened as a result of your action especially focusing on your achievements.

Use the STAR method (Situation, Task, Activity and Results - you can Google this if you are unsure what this means), with particular focus describing the results of your actions in business goals i.e. ‘Automated the regression testing of software, saving the company over £1.2 million per year, as well as reduced bugs in software releases by 85%’.




Management CV: (of any other profession CV i.e. Marketing, Sales, Teaching, Accounting etc)

Please watch the 7 minute training video below.

Your CV needs to focus on your achievements, actions and results, rather than just listing your role and experience i.e. explain what action was taken and what happened as a result of your action especially focusing on your achievements.

Use the STAR method (Situation, Task, Activity and Results - you can Google this if you are unsure what this means), with particular focus describing the results of your actions in business goals i.e. Launched a new product line, resulting in an additional £2 million revenue for the company within 12 months of launch.
