Event - How to build a winning CV based on skills

This Women in Finance networking event was hosted at Chartered Accountants’ Hall, London, on 27 November 2012.


Nathalie Metcalf and Vanessa Sadler draw on their years of experience, working with Senior Executives who are looking to make a career change, to run this interactive workshop.  You will be introduced to a number of approaches to CV writing, including the very successful skills-based approach.  Not only will this help you land your next job, it will also give you more focus when interviewing candidates.  During the workshop you will spend time developing a career profile that is useful for networking and helps set the right tone for your CV.  Bring along your CV and get some feedback on the impact your CV has, and the perception it creates, in the mind of the reader.
