CV ADVICE FOR PROJECT MANAGERS

by Melanie Franklin

Often when I ask delegates why they want a qualification they state it is to enhance their CVs and professionalise their experience. But how does this translate to writing that impressive CV that gets you on the short-list?

THREE KEY POINTS TO CONSIDER

My complete blog can be downloaded here but this is a summary:

  1. Know your market – research what the market is looking for in terms of skills and qualifications
  2. Recognise the 3 types of project activity – you will want to refer to these in your CV
  3. Clearly identify achievements – reword your CV to reflect the output rather than input of your work

KEEP UPDATED ON LATEST TRENDS

Making sure you know what is going on in your market is really important when you get onto the shortlist. One way to do this is through webinars and Melanie Franklin hosts many of these. Free to attend and taking just 1 hour of your time, you can use these to sound relevant during interviews.
