CV 4 ME
CV 4 ME client feedback I have finally found the confidence to submit my resume through employers knowing that I had a lot of help from CV 4Me. Thanks again for all the help. I have landed me my first part-time job! Thank you for showing me how to fine tune my CV! I am so thankful I found CV 4 Me. I have been able to modify my CV to include the many skills that I had which would otherwise have been left out of my CV, had it not been for CV 4 Me. Now my CV is more focused and could be easily modified to suit the particular job I wish to apply for.
On line forum
Forum feedback Using these types of forum is "the way" that our students are communicating all the time. It is great that we keep up with the ways of communicating. It is about instant responses, connectivity and communicating. I liked meeting people in a new way - for instance one person I've hardly spoken to in the meetings, and who doesn't say much, posted lots of thought provoking stuff. Was initially interested in the forum as I am always keen to develop new techniques for working with individuals. I found the level of responses engaging as there were some dynamic views being put forward regarding the way career planning and searching is changing.
Development findings Web savvy Quick wins - easy navigation and interactivity High degree of involvement or effort = quick disconnect Immediacy of technical channels.
Outcomes 66% of texters would not have engaged 79% found phone guidance very useful 95% more CV confident 91% prefer CV feedback via 90% increased knowledge of career goals & how to achieve them – follow up service.
