One Way To Help Your CV Stand Out From The Crowd...
Whilst you may have a very successful career and enjoyed a number of promotions, remember that the hiring manager does not know you and will make the decision on whether they want to meet you by reading a few pages of A4 that summarises years of hard work and challenges.
Before you put together your CV, take time out to write down all your achievements - the increased sales, the increased ROI marketing campaign, the supplier consolidation exercise, the increased pick per hour etc..
These achievements will be what gets you hired!
Unfortunately, too many good people who have not put together a CV for a good while or had an interview overlook this and believe that listing the job description is important.
The hiring manager already knows what a purchasing manager, FD, product manager does on a daily basis.
It is what you have achieved that will be of interest to them as it helps them visualise how you will add value to their team.
Don't be shy. You are marketing yourself and the few pages of A4 is your 'marketing flyer'.
Do not to embellish any achievements though, you will be found out by a good and curious hiring manager at the interview.
