CV Requests

Post by Alexis » Sun Jun 10, 2012 3:12 pm

Just to let you know, I will be refraining from doing CV's until August 2012, however, the ones I have at the moment will be completed very soon and if anyone needs updates on any I have done previously, this does not apply.

The reason for this break is simply because I need a little time to spend on re-doing the FAQ section and bringing it up to date.

Hope this doesn't pose too much of a problem for anyone.

If an urgent request is made, I will, of course, consider it. :)

Thank you folks. :D

I am stopping doing full new CV's from the end of this week folks. The four I have at the moment, I will of course complete.

Anyone I have ever done one for is welcome to contact me for on-going updates. Happy to continue reviewing and maintaining those.

There are a number of reasons for cutting back on the CV's:

1 This has become a full time job in itself, which is taking up most of my HSfB time leaving me pushed to do other things that equally could help our members unless I do them in the evenings, which isn't a good idea as I am sure you all agree.
2 I personally read every single word of the CV's I am sent and re-do much of the wording from beginning to end, so it is a very slow individual process and can take days just to complete one. (This is not a complaint. I enjoy doing this.)
3 I need a little more attention to my health for a couple of months.
4 Finally, some people are coming into our site simply to request CV's without any input to our site or forums. I am all for helping anyone believe me, but recently there have been a few that I would term "chancers" whom I have politely refused.

My intention, over the coming weeks, is to try and create a number of templates/designs, suggested wording (that is where the biggest problems seem to lie) and useful up-to-date researched information as to how to go about gearing CV's to make it past the initial elimination processes used nowadays. I will also attempt to point people in the right direction as to how they can make the CV specific to H&S which also seems to be one of the biggest problems. (Gonna be a big download Jack! :lol: )

Having said all of the above, NO-ONE HAS TO BE WARY OF CONTACTING ME IF THEY ARE STRUGGLING!! I will always be happy to offer guidance and assistance and by next year, I may well be doing them from scratch again. :lol: (who knows!)

If anyone is going to lose a chance of a potential job, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will sort one out. I couldn't have it on my conscience if someone lost a new job because I didn't help. .pale

So, that's the story on the CV front at the moment. I know our dedicated HSfB family will understand. I must reiterate if anyone is struggling or needs an old one I have done for them updated/revamped, it will be no problem at all to help, so please dooooo contact me. ./thumbsup.. Those ones are easy-peasy to do and only take a very short amount of time.

I will post in here when my new CV downloads are on the site, but it won't be until about January.
