Your Curriculum Vitae - CV - or Résumé is one of your key tools for your successful job hunt.
Your resume can open the door to your dream job.
However, if you are missing the point, or just don't get it 100 percent right, your chances of getting to the next round of the recruitment process and being invited for a job interview might be lost.
On average recruiters take less than 30 seconds to scan through a job application, before they move on to the next CV. You really need to nail your CV to get a chance for a closer look.
You need to put your best effort into getting your CV right.

Keen to apply for that interesting role? Now you need to customise your CV.
It's worth spending time on your CV for a role where your skills and experience are a good fit.
Your CV should have information that will allow an employer to quickly see why you'd be a good fit for the advertised position.
Keeping in mind that most advertised positions attract numerous applicants, your CV will only stand out if its well considered, succinct and customised.
" Remember that you can use the cover letter to bring in more of your personality and motivation for a particular position and company.
And don't forget to use spell check and ask someone else to read it over before you press send."
Anna was worth her weight in gold---she was fantastic at helping me format my CV and search for jobs that suited my skill set. In the end, I got a great job in a great city. Carsten and his team were very thorough and helpful when it came time to apply for and get our visas. They are now helping us with our resident visas, and I'm certain that the process will be the same. I'd recommend them highly.
The great work done before has surely helped to achieve this quick positive result. NZIC are really professional and know what to do when to do it and how to do it. That is so convenient and efficient! I’m still working with them for the next steps and would like to thank them again for their help and support. Thank you. Kind Regards.
NZIC guided me all the way through getting my first work visa to permanent residency. Their job seeking support was key when I first arrived in NZ, communication was always easy and clear. I'm very thankful for their help and definitely recommend their services.
Dear Jannie, just want to drop a note to thank for your everything. Your help is much appreciated! You are a wonderful and professional job search coach! I am so lucky to have you supporting me!
