Event description

Description

With some companies charging upwards of £600 for a bespoke CV, it pays to know how to professionally write this vital document effectively yourself.

A great CV can open doors. It is your glossy advertising brochure and needs to inform, persuade and convert the recruiter in much the same way as when you are deciding which product to buy.

Here at Oogii, it takes hours and hours to write fantastic CVs for our clients. We have to take time to get to know them and their work history to encapsulate them paper. In theory, because you know yourself better than anyone else in the world, writing your own CV should be a breeze. However, this is not the case. It is, in fact, very difficult to write your own CV.

When we apply for a job, we don't get to see the other candidates' CVs. How does yours compare? Does it stand out among the rest? What does a bad CV look like? What does an average CV look like and what does a great CV look like? In this Masterclass you will find out.

If you have any of the following words or phrases in your CV, you definitely need our Masterclass!

Hardworking, reliable, trustworthy, can use own initiative, works well in a team, passionate, problem solving, communication skills, people skills, good timekeeping, honest, target-driven...blah, blah, blah

Other common problems include selling yourself ineffectually, too much text, too little text, bullets followed by one or two words that don't really explain anything, bullets that run into a paragraph, excessively long lists of bullets, inconsistent formatting, detrimental formatting, irrelevant information, negative information, mistakes in grammar, spelling and punctuation, lack of definition, weak word choices and general untidiness.

Who is this Masterclass for?

Sadly, the majority of our clients present us with CVs that do not do them justice or reflect a crisp professional image. This Masterclass is for anyone in or out of work, looking for work or helping others with their CV. You will need a good standard of English to get the most out of the session. You must also be prepared to change the way you think about yourself and your CV.

What will I do in the Masterclass?

The session is a mixture of presentation, discussion and practical, interactive tasks. What you will learn includes how to structure your CV, how to sell yourself through your profile, key skills and work history, how to deal with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and how to format your document effectively. You will also learn about common misconceptions, pitfalls and mistakes and how to avoid them.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

What will I take away from the Masterclass?

Knowledege that will last a lifetime and can potentially boost your earning potential

Increased confidence and motivation

Insight into the mind of the recruiter

Tools that equip you to create a CV that stands head and shoulders above the competition

A pack of useful CV writing resources


I've booked. What next?

Great! We love meeting new people and connecting them through our network. Once you have booked, please send your current CV to hello@oogii.co.uk so you are able to take part in one of our fun interactive exercises. Closer to the date, we will send out a short survey to find out a little about you (such as dietary requirements, do you wish to book parking etc.) so please take a few moments to complete it. We will also send you an email with directions to Castleton Mill. Limited free parking is available but needs to be booked in advance to reserve your spot.


Some food for thought...

We have provided these inks to a handful of CV writing services to give you an idea of the cost of having your CV rewritten. We haven't included oogii in the list but the info is on our website. There are many CV writing services around but we have avoided listing the really cheap ones that simply offer basic reformatting or rewriting. A great CV takes time to create so beware of anything claiming a short turnover time or is very cheap.
