Effective CVs and a free guide

A well-written and presented CV plays an essential part in matching candidates to right roles and responsibilities, where solid experience and genuine evidence of results encourage us to take a closer look at someone going places.

There is also a number with less than truthful entries which naturally have to be weeded out of further consideration.

That’s where we’ll dig deeper to find supply chain and procurement professionals who can communicate their achievements to demonstrate what’s really being asked for in a role, rather than simply tired waffle.

Candidate tips – successful CVs

As everyone ups their game to stand out in a very competitive marketplace, CVs need to work even harder to clearly demonstrate notable achievements, responsibilities and results.

Here are some quick pointers to getting yours right -

  • Make sure – your CV is concise, chronological and up-to-date
  • Be specific – about projects, categories and results you’ve been actively involved with
  • Check – any objectives you include will count you in for a role, not out
  • Don’t – lie, plagiarise or slip into irrelevance
  • Skip – clichés and generic phrases, they won’t impress

We see a lot of CVs and will be happy to advise if you’re looking for some help with yours.

    • Juergen Michael Becker on Dealing with nerves at interviews

    • in this southeast-asian environment, people have developed a technique of re-routing this nervousness or excess energy through one of the legs onto the floor. hardly visible to the counterpart in the discussion, this is done by a fast vibration (up and down movement) of the leg with only the toes as the connecting point to the ground. it seems to work wonders in any stress situation like job interview, negtiation or critique discussion, especially in the chinese business community.
