CV Coaching and LinkedIn
Get coaching to develop a current CV that gets attention and results
or feel confident in your online brand with LinkedIn Profile Development.
There is so much about the job search process that we cannot control, we can’t control availability of the role or who gets shortlisted, and it can all be really frustrating but we can control what we send out in terms of our personal brand.
Our CV is a marketing document, and it is marketing the hardest product in the world to sell which is YOU!
I will let you in on a secret and that is that we all struggle to write our own CV’s, I have been a Career coach since 2011 and I even ran my own CV writing business for 5 years called Fasttrackcvs and I would find it difficult to write my own CV, however, over the last 10 years I have developed a template and 10 steps that make a tough task easier and get you noticed for the right reasons.
Sometimes it is difficult to see the woods for the trees and having a fresh perspective can make all the difference. I can work with you on a CV review, guide you through the process of writing a new CV or you can choose to have your CV written for you.

LinkedIn Profile Development
We live in a ”connection economy” which means that there has been a shift from face to face to connecting in a digital space, now more so than ever.
A strong LinkedIn profile puts you on a professional map, but it is important that we consider how we want to be perceived there. We need to remember that people make perceptions-if you do not provide a perception, they will. In other words, we create a personal brand intentionally or unintentionally.
In this session, we will establish exactly what makes you unique and relevant and differentiated from others, so that you can reach your career goals.
You will learn how LinkedIn can be a powerful tool in career transition. Your CV is where you have been, but your LinkedIn profile can be focused to where you are going. This is important if you are planning a career change.
How to write a strong summary that will get you noticed and increase your visibility.
Audit tools that you can use to evaluate your profile.
How to maintain visibility on LinkedIn, build connections and strategies for career/role shifters

Remember we create our brand either intentionally or unintentionally, so in this age of digital connectiveness we owe it to ourselves to spend some time considering what we want those that we are trying to engage to think or feel when they meet our profile for the first time. These 10 Tips are designed to help you with the process.

“Carmel is an approachable and experienced individual when it comes to dealing with people and helping them get results. She has an apt and intuitive approach to articulating and illustrating things in which people find difficult to say. She is driven and proves herself as an expert in her field alone through her self-starter initiative. I suppose this is a result of her keenness to help people - regardless of status or background.
Carmel provided a key service to me at a crucial time in choosing career options, for exceptional value for money she also provided me with a prime skill in being able to effectively produce my own distinguished marketing tool when approaching employers - a CV that is different, and stands out.
Any type of recruiter will tell you that a CV specifically tailored to the job post they are trying to fill is a prerequisite, and fundamental in securing the interview. That is why you should call Carmel!”
“I worked with Carmel about a year ago while I was wrapping-up my start-up and figuring what my next career move would be. Carmel was an excellent sounding-board and offered insightful yet practical advice. Her ability to spot common traits, in an otherwise eclectic career history, proved invaluable. I have no hesitation in recommending Carmel to anyone at a cross-roads in their career.”
