5.0 out of 5 stars End that Jaded Feeling at Work Feeling with this Book, 22 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Perfect CV (Paperback)
Feeling a little jaded in your current job?

Or perhaps you feel trapped - unable to move to new pastures because of the recession's impact on job availability? If changing the job you have seems an unrealistic option in today's climate then the next best thing is to see the opportunities in where you are now.

To kick start a change in your thinking read Max Eggert's "Perfect CV". Follow the simple process to define you career achievements to date and give your self esteem an immediate boost.

Eggert asks the reader to list those moments when you have thought to yourself, "I really did well there". Then add in some further analysis such as who was it for, who was involved and link it with any means of measuring it's impact. Finally add in the benefits brought about by your action.

He gives the example "improved debt collection time from 85 to 54 days thus ensuring maximum cash flow".

Alternatives are "assisted clients' understanding of fitness classes thus increasing customer satisfaction and gym membership renewals" or "simplified staff feedback forms which increased response rate by 50%".

Follow through on this process and you will also achieve a CV to feel proud of. But who needs a CV in this climate? This time will pass, things will pick up - we know this because they always do. What are you going to have in your CV when this happens? Reviewing your current achievements and looking to those you want to add will give clarity on how you want to develop in your current job. While many sit and wallow in the stagnant job market, use it to get ahead and you'll be ready for when the market picks up.

But this book now when you have the time to shape your achievements or in six months when you're asked to forward a CV as soon as possible for that "ideal job" - which would you choose?
