"I just didn't feel confident sending my CV out. I knew I wasn't going to get any callbacks and I didn't know how to make it better."
Budget Management for the Arts
IN A NUTSHELL
Wanted to change industries, needed a CV that told a better story.
Daniel wanted to transition from one industry to another. He needed help highlighting the job skills he had that could translate when changing careers.
Daniel had been working in the nonprofit world for a while and was looking to make a change to the financial services industry. He was eager to use his budget management experience but was unsure how to play up his job skills in a way that would attract employers. His original CV simply didn’t give recruiters a good idea of his career goals.
"My writer was able to pull out a better story. When I saw the skills that she highlighted for me, I was able to think, ‘Oh right, I am good at that."
How We Helped
Daniel bought the Elite CV package, which includes a CV, cover letter, LinkedIn profile optimisation and unlimited revisions. He was paired with a professional CV writer, Angela, who worked with him to:

"With the new CV, I feel more confident. I’m not great at talking about myself or promoting myself so it was great to have someone else do that."
