I've come to that stage where I'm now moving my life back down to England from where I currently live (Wales) and it's time to bite the biscuit and take a serious look at my resume and re-target it for the jobs I'm trying to apply for.
I would greatly appreciate it if anybody could point me in the direction of resume examples that they have found successful in presenting your skills, strengths and positive attitudes towards the industry.
If required I can post a copy of my resume later on (need to find all my XSL files to convert my CV into readable formats).
Not got any examples, but from previous experience I'd be tempted to do two. One for recruitment agents and one for their clients. The reason for the agents is that from previous experience they normally have no idea about the skills they are selling and really just need a checklist.
Ahh ok, so one to penetrate the HR barrier Actually heard that tip before somewhere but didn't quite realize why - but taking that into consideration when posting to online job search sites I can see how jamming your resume with keywords can be helpful.
In the past interviews that I've done I've created a seperate CV for every job which elaborated more on the aspects their interested in, and a cover letter to complement it.
