Have you lost your job due to Corona Virus? Need a CV?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is the difference that makes paying a hefty sum worth it rather than doing your own? What do they do that makes it so over the top that you get a job? I used to manage and look through C.V.s, and there are certainly some bad ones, but I don't think I ever saw one that just Wowed me and made me hire someone. I wasn't hiring business professionals, though, so maybe there's a difference there?

Just for shits, here's mine. Try not to roast me too hard. I genuinely don't know - is this garbage compared to what a professional would produce, or is it alright? Or as I said, maybe the paid C.V. is more of a business professional thing and it wouldn't make a difference for a "regular working guy" sort of person? I don't get paying someone a lot to make one, but maybe it's just over my head?

Electric Earth my product is about the words and the writing, not the layout.

If you’d like an appraisal please email me, I’m not going to get into a discussion here about my process.

Roz, you might be better off targeting people in Oz. Something like a million potential customers for you now this week. Whirlpool forums, or something.

Well I think you certainly need to throw that CV away and get a professional one done by rozz.

For a start ,Why are you only showing the last ten years of your working life , and you have had 4 jobs in that time. That's only long enough to learn how to sweep the floor and make the bosses coffee before you were fired in each job.

Why only one page ? Where are the Certificates, Degrees from your school that you went to. That is assuming you did go to school and kindergarten. Do you have any personal references from the Company, Business or person that hired you. :stir:

Nice CV, imho. Personally, for starters, everywhere it says 'XXXX and bartender,' I would just delete the 'bartender', as the last thing I'd be looking for in an English teacher is to be reminded that they used to work in a bar serving drinks. 'Manager' and 'server' would have been just fine. But really, I think that's a good looking CV. You're probably already towards the top of the stack of CVs sitting on a director's desk because you have a Cambridge CELTA.



Also, I assume you weren't keen on hiring the people with the 'bad ones,' so surely all those people who got looked over and didn't get the job (and the income) would have benefited greatly by getting a professional to do it.

Your CV is often your first impression before your first impression, so whether you get a professional to do it or not, it better be damn good.
