This video is about resumes or CV’s - some of the
tips and tricks, some of the do's and don'ts and some of my pet hates.
Telling you about what to do is going to enable you to give you guys the best chance of success when you go for your next interview or you're looking for your next role and you want to earn your interview, because that's exactly what it is.
A CV or resume if you like, is the key to earning an interview.
First of all, it's about as exactly as it says, grabbing someone's attention from what is generally
a one, two, maybe three page document. Some people say, oh, it must be a one-page resume.
Sometimes I think if you're more experienced Treasury professionals its not enough.
I think for Treasury professionals a resume needs to be as long as it needs to be.
The key thing about it needs to reach out and grab your attention. When you're writing it, you need to make sure that you're writing or amending your resume.
Each time you send it out it needs to be tailored to your audience.
You want to reach through the glass and grab their attention, grab it through and get them saying oh I want to read this, this is a person we should be talking to.
I don't want to see boxes boxes boxes. A good resume is about presentation. It's about also them knowing you and them knowing how you're going to present yourself and how you're going to work with them.
If you have good presentation of a good resume that's the first, Oh actually that person will be
good when they do this, when they're writing reports, when they're presenting to our investors. That gives you confidence in them. And it's the successful first start if you like and exactly the same,
it then earns you that right to be interviewed.
Don't make mistakes. I think it's what F5 or F7. I think its F7 in Word if you want to do any spelling mistakes. When you do that there are a number of times when I've seen people are very good Mangers..
That's right, Manger is a word, Manager is a different word!
So please look at both.
