A month within the lifetime of CV Shed

How can or not it’s that point of 12 months already? Welcome again behind the scenes of CV Shed as I conduct the normal annual overview of what I’ve been as much as lately. One factor’s for certain – it’s been busy!

CVs for personal clients

CV writing enterprise has been hectic lately and I’ve had extra orders from non-public clients than I can ever keep in mind having earlier than. These orders are the center of my enterprise – I really like not simply presenting clients with a CV that may assist them to land interviews, but additionally listening to how assured it makes them really feel once they learn them.

Only a collection of CVs that I’ve written lately embrace: a Content material Author, a Gross sales and Advertising and marketing Specialist, a Communications Director, a postgraduate pupil, an import-export enterprise proprietor, a Head of Studying and Growth, a Technical IT Venture Supervisor and a Group Administrator.

Enhancing blogs

On the finish of final 12 months, I turned the Editor of a UK weblog targeted on CVs and job search matters. Since then, the consumer has requested me to take over two of their US blogs as properly. The three blogs complete over 2,000 posts thus far and I’m step by step going over the previous posts to convey them as much as scratch while including 22 new posts every month from my marvellous crew of writers on each side of the Atlantic.

I’ve additionally been modifying weblog posts and newsletters for a serviced residence firm (suppose Airbnb for the chief market), which has been actually fascinating and an effective way to step outdoors my regular material. It’s jogged my memory how a lot I really like engaged on the modifying facet of my enterprise!

Writing articles

The serviced residence firm has additionally requested me to put in writing weblog posts for them – once more that is one thing I’ve had nice enjoyable doing. Because it wants extra analysis than my regular matters, I’m discovering out loads of fascinating details about locations I’ve by no means been to!

On prime of that, I proceed to put in writing posts for the
CV Shed weblog – partly to assist potential clients and jobseekers and partly simply because I really like doing it! I additionally write the odd publish for the UK job search weblog that I edit, too.

CV evaluations

A number of weeks again I revamped my
CV overview service and it’s proved overwhelmingly widespread! Plenty of individuals have taken me up on the provide of a free CV overview – they’re an effective way to lift consciousness of CV Shed and convey new clients into the enterprise, while nonetheless providing worth to those who can’t stretch to a full skilled re-write.

CV contracts

I’ve been serving to one other CV author to create CVs for a authorities contract that she has. These CVs are typically for unemployed individuals aiming to get again into work, so it’s been very rewarding to have the ability to make a distinction to their job search.

Employees profiles

I nonetheless work with a building firm to put in writing employees profiles for his or her bidding packs. The quantity has dropped since I began – I initially had each worker on my to-do record! Now the majority of the work is finished and I solely want to arrange profiles for his or her new starters as they step into the enterprise.

Social media

I proceed to publish usually on
Fb and
Instagram – comply with me for brand spanking new weblog posts, infographics, CV suggestions and updates about CV Shed.


For causes I can’t solely fathom, I made a decision in the summertime – nearly on a whim – that I’d do a Grasp’s diploma. I’m now finding out in the direction of an MA in Utilized English at Nottingham College. Fortunately, it’s a distance studying course, and tremendous versatile, so it’s becoming very well round my different commitments. One task accomplished… 17 extra to go!

I’ve additionally turn into an authorized member of the British Affiliation of CV Writers and usually attend their Lunch & Be taught classes. Though we’re technically opponents, everyone seems to be tremendous supportive and it’s an awesome useful resource for each discovering new purchasers and referring current purchasers onwards. It is also reassuring for my clients to know that they are working with an accredited CV author, in what has turn into a really overcrowded business.
