Your CV is the passport to your professional future. The right one will bypass the technology and the initial 5-second human scan to earmark you for your target role. Isn’t that what a great CV is all about? Writing your own CV doesn’t come naturally. Everyone benefits from fresh eyes, perspective and industry insight. Your CV must articulate your distinctive skills and attributes in a way that shows the value you bring to your future employer. With fewer open roles in the market, it’s never been more important to understand what recruiters look for in a financial services CV, overhaul your CV and have your burning questions answered.

In this one-hour masterclass, learn CV writing tips and strategies from Victoria McLean formerly of Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch, who has helped over 30,000 candidates secure their dream role. Victoria has developed a nuanced and strategic approach, which fuses market knowledge with a deep understanding of recruitment techniques to help build your personal brand and create a compelling CV story.

Learn how to create a strong and authentic financial services CV which will get you noticed for the right reasons. Expertise and insider knowledge gathered from years of international CV writing and recruiting will be shared, including:

• CV evolution – how AI and algorithms can make or break your career (and how to beat the CV robots)
• Soft skills to avoid in your CV – how to show, not tell
• The essentials for every bullet point
• How to ‘prove it’
• Be ‘smart’ – sell yourself every step of the way
• Avoid the formatting errors that guarantee rejection from most CV screening systems
• The two mistakes that spell rejection from 97% of recruiters
• Live Q&A

The masterclass will be delivered by Victoria McLean, CEO of City CV, an award-winning CV writing and interview coaching consultancy, and part of Hanover Executive Search.
