Military to Civilian CV Writing
“City CV met every deadline and drilled down into the detail necessary to understand the target audience. The fact that I have now accepted the offer of this job, despite significant competition, is directly attributable to City CV’s work.” Andrew, Former Captain of the British Army
“As promised, some feedback on how my assessment day went for the Director position with XXXX (Big National Charity). On arrival I was given a role play scenario and asked to prepare (30 mins allowed) a presentation to give to the interview panel. The subject related to the charity’s new Business Plan. Having completed the presentation, the same panel then interviewed me for an hour after which I was given a tour of the HQ. Finally there was a networking lunch. There were 6 other external candidates there. The assessment seemed to go well and I really enjoyed it! Of note and linked to your preparation – first question was the “Why join the XXXXX?” and second was the defence question, “If you wrote a CV that listed your weaknesses or bad points what would they be?” The ‘wow’ factor golden nuggets of research information proved very useful too.
On Friday afternoon I received a call from the people interviewing to say that I had the job… and with that wonderful news I go into work tomorrow to resign from the Armed Forces after 28 years. I just wanted to thank you for your guidance which was invaluable. I felt very well prepared for the interview and actually enjoyed it.”
