Paul Hichens is recognised by many as the UK's leading CV writer. In addition to heading top CV company 'CV Succeed', giving CV writing master classes, and advising on CVs in public and on the BBC, Paul is very much in demand for his work and has had a long and constant waiting list for many years now. Clients from all walks of life come to him on a regular basis from every corner of the globe; many by personal recommendation.
Over the years Paul has not only helped a great many people into better jobs, but has long been an incisive and fruitful source of career advice to job seekers at all levels and across all sectors.
Significantly, his CV writing methods are new, radical and different.
Early in his career, Paul noticed that traditional CV writing methodology was flawed, contradictory and even counter-productive. He also noticed that rather than question and challenge these problems, most CV advisers either failed to see them or ignored them.
Rather than simply copy flawed and outdated methodology as others seemed to be doing (and continue to do), Paul instead developed his own CV writing methodology that is based not on old and outdated myths, but on real, modern and sales and marketing principles.
The CVs that Paul writes are different, but in a good way. They are frequently more focused, more relevant, more proactive, more enticing to read, better optimised and with a more powerful sales message than typical CVs. Not only that, but they are tried and tested to get results in the job market. Certainly, Paul has the utmost confidence in his CV writing methods (that are described in his book, 'The One Page CV') so much so that when he writes CVs for clients he actually guarantees that their CV will be better than that of any other company (and explains in advance just why).
In short, Paul is a visionary and very unique CV writer, and that is one reason why his book 'The One Page CV' is radical, pioneering and very different to any other CV book you will find.
