Is it a bird, is it a plane, no, it’s a CV

Curriculum Vitae, something that we all have to write at some stage or another, but can we all improve on our approach when writing it. Over the course of our education, we’re told to improve our grades and reach our potential, but we are rarely ever given a life lesson in selling ourselves. Today one of my first tasks was vetting the many candidates that put themselves forwards for positions that Permanent People offer, a process that is a lot more complex than previously assumed.

“There is no right or wrong way to write a CV”, the educated words I received from the head of the firm, Paul, before taking on my task, and completely true. After wading through the dozens of applications I realised one thing, that every single CV had a different layout. When we write CV’s we use the modern approach to anything: we Google it, but apparently, this is the wrong way to do something that is meant to be so personalInstead, what I realised while reading, was that the balance of personality and achievement is vital for selling yourself. Ultimately the point of a CV is to ensure that employers recognise your abilities in relation to the work within their business or firm, but also ensure that we sell who we are before we even enter the interviewing process. The job market at the moment is the hardest it’s been to enter in years, and this means us emphasising our abilities is imperative. If we denote we are an outgoing person with the ability to comprehend complex situations, make sure that you do so, but more importantly if you are good at something make sure you tell us! Matching a personality to a job is something we specialize in, and honesty, in this area especially, is the best policy.

Today we pay homage to Gemma Hill and celebrate her 2 year anniversary with PP!

Gem is someone the business had known a long time, and due to circumstance and the stars aligning, the opportunity came up in 2021 for her to join the team - and we've never looked back.

She has brought a fresh, fun and very detailed approach to PP and the Rec2Rec market, something which our clients and all the candidates that Gem has dealt with will attest to.

We love having her on our team, she makes us laugh and truly cares about everyone she works with and comes into contact with in her role!

So here's to Gem's first 2 years at PP, with many more to come 💜
