How can or not it’s that point of 12 months already? Welcome again behind the scenes of CV Shed as I conduct the standard annual evaluation of what I’ve been as much as lately. One factor’s for certain – it’s been busy!

CVs for personal clients

CV writing enterprise has been hectic lately and I’ve had extra orders from non-public clients than I can ever bear in mind having earlier than. These orders are the center of my enterprise – I really like not simply presenting clients with a CV that may assist them to land interviews, but in addition listening to how assured it makes them really feel after they learn them.

Only a choice of CVs that I’ve written lately embody: a Content material Author, a Gross sales and Advertising and marketing Specialist, a Communications Director, a postgraduate pupil, an import-export enterprise proprietor, a Head of Studying and Growth, a Technical IT Mission Supervisor and a Workforce Administrator.

Enhancing blogs

On the finish of final 12 months, I turned the Editor of a UK weblog targeted on CVs and job search matters. Since then, the shopper has requested me to take over two of their US blogs as effectively. The three blogs whole over 2,000 posts thus far 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 workforce of writers on each side of the Atlantic.

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

Writing articles

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

On high of that, I proceed to put in writing posts for the
CV Shed weblog – partly to assist potential clients and jobseekers and partly simply because I really like doing it! I additionally write the odd submit for the UK job search weblog that I edit, too.

CV opinions

Just a few weeks again I revamped my
CV evaluation service and it’s proved overwhelmingly widespread! Numerous folks have taken me up on the supply of a free CV evaluation – they’re a good way to lift consciousness of CV Shed and produce new clients 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.

Workers profiles

I nonetheless work with a development firm to put in writing employees profiles for his or her bidding packs. The amount has dropped since I began – I initially had each worker on my to-do checklist! Now the majority of the work is finished and I solely want to arrange profiles for his or her new starters as they step into the enterprise.

Social media

I proceed to submit usually on
Fb and
Instagram – observe me for brand new weblog posts, infographics, CV ideas and updates about CV Shed.


For causes I can’t fully fathom, I made a decision in the summertime – virtually on a whim – that I’d do a Grasp’s diploma. I’m now finding out 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 rather well round my different commitments. One project accomplished… 17 extra to go!

I’ve additionally turn into a licensed member of the British Affiliation of CV Writers and usually attend their Lunch & Study periods. Though we’re technically rivals, everyone seems to be tremendous supportive and it’s a fantastic useful resource for each discovering new purchasers and referring present purchasers onwards. It is also reassuring for my clients to know that they are working with an accredited CV author, in what has turn into a really overcrowded trade.
