After transferring from the PC to the laptop (I’ve yet to work out how to virtually move my documents) I found an older CV in my email to bring up to date. 3 months ago
Entries from everyone
I’ve had a fab year of courses and finishing stuff, so the ol’ CV should look reasonably impressive, methinks! It’s not exactly ‘zingy’, but a bit of a rejiggle to include my web-type stuff and I’ll see what it can hook, I guess?! 5 months ago
Last week i was given a new contract which is basically a get out clause because the company is running at a loss .. i’ve known for a while now that the people behind this company seem very good at dissolving companies and starting anew so i’ve never felt secure, in fact they still owe me five weeks pay from when i first started .. i am getting paid now week to week but its still iffy .. trouble is they are not a bad lot, they seem to be struggling to make a new company work, the experience for me is a bonus and i do enjoy the work .. so i’m in a dilemma, do i cut my losses and find something else or ..
Quite by chance i came across two weekend jobs and thought okay compromise i updated my CV and applied .. of course it would mean i could end up working seven days a week but at the same time if this company does go out of business i don’t want to end up doing nothing. 8 months ago
I did this eight months ago just to make my basic CV more job worthy and it worked enough to get me to, where i am today .. considering i’d been in the same job for 10 years, a stay at home mum for most of my adult life with a few little jobs thrown in for good measure and basic education my CV aint nothing special .. but last month two things have happened .. one i resigned from my ten year job and two i’ve started on a completely new career path quite by chance my CV is gonna take on an exciting change and i’m looking forward to up-dating it again. 11 months ago
My CV is now updated. Just need to ensure I don’t lose it and to update it with any new job(s) I get.
Now I just need to start sending it out to companies/job advertisments. But one step at a time. :o) 15 months ago
thank you Ben, for helping me to get started. Without you I would have procrastinated for another two years…
Have started to add most recent work experience, and will fill out with details in the next couple of days. 16 months ago
... begins with a single step.
This is my single step. I shudder at the thought of actually sitting down and doing it. Because it reminds me of how little I have actually done with my life, how overdue this change is. 16 months ago
... with chiumento went well. went through my CV a bit to try and make it more appealing. also gave me access to their site so that I can run through a few questionnaires to help me focus on future. 16 months ago
My CV has now been sent to a company, who is helping people made redundant from the company I was working at, for advice and help in updating it.
I have a meeting with a consultant next week to go through things, which probably includes some tests to find out my strengths and weeknesses.
This should be good as it has been 13 years since I last applied for a job and had an interview. So you could say I am a bit rusty. 17 months ago
