Time to (WHEW!) change my job!



Time to (YAWN) re-launch my career!



Time to get a new job!

(Well, probably more challenging surveillance in the same one!)

Ten reasons for you to launch your CV into another direction:

1. You sit at your desk counting the ceiling tiles and hoping one would fall to liven the day;

2. The screen saver on your computer has photos of surfing, sailing or mountain climbing;

3. Your friends say your tone of voice does not change when you talk about your job;

4. You can walk to and from the train station with your eyes closed and find the office;

5. You enter the tea room and nobody realises you are balancing a computer on your head;

6. You notice less talented persons are getting more pay and more exciting tasks than you;

7. You are selected to induct new staff members in the building lay-out from ground to tenth floor;

8. Your appraisals are continually graded with top marks and will be the next year;

9. You correct your boss in a meeting without realizing you know more than him / her;

10. You feel as if you will be put out to pasture in the next round of office re-structure;



Getting to grips with recruitment means you have to figure out the difference between scannable CVs and Internet plain text CV (ASCII). You will hit the mark with “CVs for Dummies” if you are:



- changing career directions in your life;

- a recent graduate looking for CVs and application forms;

- a mother who has nurtured her children and returns to the workplace;

- a manager or senior direction climbing the next rung on corporate ladder;

In this book, we show how to scale the fence of success with hard-hitting advice to enhance your confidence in scores and make you stand out amongst the hopefuls.

Just flip the pages at your own pace and gain invaluable tools for your journey to those employers’ doors!

Working after nurturing


For women who gave up full-time employment to take care of our children in their formative years, returning to the workplace can oftentimes be daunting, especially if taking career breaks for more than five years. Your heart starts beating fast at the mention of an e-mail message or about Outlook Diaries.

First things to consider: what kind of job do I want to go into? What skills do I have after so many years away from the buzz and twitter of the workplace?

On your CV, make sure to put information about activities you’ve fulfilled during those years. Did you volunteer in your children’s school, for instance, being on the Board of Governors, or organising fund-raising stints? Did you have a part-time work, say, administration for the family business?

Keeping a household budget is a transferable skill!

Winning Interviews as

New Civilians


Communication is the biggest reason recruiters miss well-qualified military candidates, say career coaches who specialize in transitioning from military to civilian jobs. They just don’t get what your CV says when you speak military-ese, not civilian-ese.


When you write your CV, put it through the civilian translation wringer by asking friends who know nothing about the military and see if they understand what you’re talking about.


* Advertise your assets

Avoid building your CV around

your military rank or title.

Instead, emphasise the

qualifications you bring to the

employer.


* Consider your best format.

A Targeted CV is a good

choice, because it features

transferable competencie;

* Zero in on job fairs.

Some military persons transfer into close protection industries.

For those of us in the Autumn years


When you have a long job history, you’re more likely to need updates on the following issues.


Choosing the wrong focus.


Present your CV in a manner that makes the employer quickly sees your skills relevant to the position you apply for instead of having to wade through reverse chronological data and not pick up important details on the first page.


Revealing age negatively. Don’t blurt out your age. Do not put old education first on your resume. Avoid listing jobs with dates older than 10 or 15 years. If you must include dusty jobs, de-emphasise the dates or omit them. You can summarise old jobs under a heading of ‘Prior to 20XX’ and avoid being too specific. Do not describe older jobs in detail.
