Over the course of the bank holiday weekend I have been tinkering with my CV to bring it up to date. At the moment I’ve got a full time job where my employer has to give three months’ notice, but given the economic climate I think it’s prudent to have a CV ready just in case.
The things I am thinking about/looking for feedback on are:
- How can I make more of my current job? It’s the most senior role on my CV, but I want it to be more than just a list of the systems I’ve implemented.
- How can I make more of my various directorships? They are all at small companies, but together they total 8 years.
- Should I cut back my education section further? My impression is that employers outside specific industries care more about experience than academic qualifications, and I don’t know if anyone still cares about my GCSE results.
I’d be grateful for any feedback, either via the comments or email. Both CVs are generic as whichever one I use (currently the bullet point one) will be on my website, rather than tailored to any specific role, and for the same reason I have left off any details of referees.
