CV Doctor and the CV Clinic |

Who or what on earth is a CV Doctor?

I guess that I’ve been called that several times, particularly as we hold CV Clinics a couple a times a month for the leading training organisation, Pitman Training as well as carrying out CV clinics at exhibitions, recruitment fairs and schools across the country.

I’m not so sure that CV Doctor is the right word; however I suppose we do diagnose what’s wrong with the CV and more importantly work out ways in which to put it right. If you are in the South Wales area and want to have Glenn Hughes take a look at your CV in person then please call Pitman Training in Cardiff or Swansea and I’m sure they’ll be happy to book you in at the next CV Clinic

There are so many and varied things that people have wrong with their CV when they come to the CV clinic but if there was one that stood out most in all the CVs that we see it is that the CVs are generally activity or responsibility driven. People seem to go on endlessly about what they do or did in a role and the truth is that any employer worth their salt will know pretty much what you did. An employer or recruiter is really interested in what you accomplished or achieved for the organisation for which you worked. They would not be even looking to employ anyone if they didn’t have a problem to solve so show employers what you did to help.

Whilst you are describing your career accomplishments, focus on the tangible benefit that you delivered for your employer when you were working there. If you made the employer money or saved them some money then say exactly how much you gained or saved the employer.

The reason why most people’s CVs are rejected at first glance is that they do not convey that very real benefit to an employer in the first ten seconds of the CV. You can forget about having detailed work experience beautifully written out in the body of the CV if it does not impress at first glance as the majority of readers won’t give it a second glance- harsh but very true.

Need some advice?

Why not send us your CV and we’ll take a look at it- there is no obligation and we will get a professional CV writer to take a look at the CV and record a short, five minute video explaining exactly what is wrong with the CV and more importantly, what needs to be done to put it right. You might be very glad indeed that you did take the time and get the advice of a CV expert!

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thank for all your help on my CV and cover letter. It has certainly paid dividends. Truly a worthwhile venture. Thanks again.
Mohamed E, UK
Glenn, I thought you may like to know that subject to references I got the position. So many thanks.
David S, Swansea
Hi Glenn, Thank you so much for getting this done with such short notice. I really appreciate it. Thanks, Lauren.
Lauren H, Swansea
Fantastic! I am very impressed with the level of service I have received from you. It is refreshing to see that you aren’t just going to end it with the completion of the cover letter and cv – above and beyond Sir, above and beyond.
Colin M, Cardiff
Hi Glenn Hope you are well? Just thought I'd let you know that I signed my contract last week with XXXXX. Previously I was employed on an Interim basis thru an agency. I just really wanted to thank you for helping me to realise my potential and helping deliver a knock out CV. If it hadn't been for that CV I wouldn't have gotten in the door with XXXXX. It's such a pleasure working in a company where the work you do is appreciated and everyone made me feel so welcome and where people help one another out. Certainly a far cry from my previous employer.
Andrew W, Mid Wales
I used your CV service sometime last year and was very pleased with the results I was given. I would like to pass them on to your site.
Justin B, England
Hi Glenn, I have two interviews this week one on Monday another in Wednesday. Let's see what feedback they supply. My wife will email her achievements. Positive feedback on Friday too
Philip W, Midland, UK
I am really happy with how the CV turned out, and am glad that I spent the money to have it done professionally instead of falling for a cut and paste job from the cheaper services. You really can see the difference.

I have a good news! Your work on the CV got me called for the interview at BCG just as I had hoped for. Also, BCG was the only company I sent the CV to, so it is 100% success rate.
Bonney, A, India
The interview is on Monday. I hope to crack it and will let you know in a couple of weeks if I got the job. But whether I get the job or not, your CV got me shortlisted for the interview and that is the maximum I had hoped from a resume. I cant express how happy I am with your service.
Eve W, Ireland
Thank you for the finalised CV. I am very pleased with the results. Thank you for all your help.
Russell M, Swansea
I have been working with Glenn for a number of months. My job search had not been fruitful until I came across Glenn. He helped me bring out the best in me; the things that were not obvious to me. He gave me the necessary tools to re-enter into the job search market with confidence. I am very grateful to Glenn for his help and only wish I had found him earlier.
Dale J, France
I can honestly say that Glenn is an Absolutely World Class Professional at what he does. He's tough with you but he gets the best out of you and he will not settle for anything less. If you need a first class evaluation of your talents, experience, expertise he the man to go to. And a thoroughly nice honest individual to boot. Best wishes Jenny.
