More About the Author
Mildred's journey into careers was quite accidental; after graduating from university in 2004 with a degree in Creative Writing and Film Studies, and dreams of building a Rupert Murdoch-sized media empire, Mildred went on to train as a journalist at the top journalism institute, Harlow College, under a scholarship from News International.
She then worked for various publications, including The Guardian newspaper, before a two-year stint as a magazine Assistant Editor - where she was also responsible for recruitment -brought her face-to-face with what she describes as "horrific" CVs and cover letters on a regular basis. This eventually led Mildred to start her own freelance CV writing business and this is where her journey into CV writing and careers advice truly began.
At the beginning of 2011, Mildred penned her first book - 7 Keys to a Winning CV: How to create a CV that gets results - after training hundreds of jobseekers in her own 'science' of writing an interview-winning CV at her popular CV workshops and seminars across London. 7 Keys to a Winning CV was later published by Harriman House in September 2011 and has since gone on to help thousands more jobseekers in the UK and abroad.
Mildred's early freelance CV writing business officially became 'CV Makeover Expert' in January 2012, providing CV, cover letter, application form and LinkedIn writing support for professional jobseekers (www.cvmakeoverexpert.com).
Named as one of The Guardian's 'Top Career Tweeters' of 2014, Mildred is passionate about people's work lives and spends most of her time giving keynote talks, running job-focused workshops, and writing and blogging about careers, in addition to helping young people find jobs at one of the largest youth centres in the UK.
When she's not immersed in the world of careers, Mildred enjoys watching "old school" murder mysteries like Poirot, critiquing films online or at the cinema, and eating out with her husband Malachi in new and different places.

I read this book very quickly on a plane and can say it fills a much-needed gap very well. It is equally good advice for the seasoned professional who thinks they already know it all which, of course, none of us does. But it is written in such an accessible way, with great insights that are given with simplicity, without pomp, that it will be a huge boost to those who have not had any previous formal advice about writing their CV.
It deserves to be a huge success.
