CV Writer Background

In 2002 I’d been working as a recruiter with large corporations as clients. But my real passion was to see my ‘candidates’, the job hunters, do better at marketing themselves out there. Being more proactive. Being smarter. ‘Cause they were making some really bad mistakes – and no-one! was telling them anything. All they were getting back from recruiters were lame things like,

“You’re overqualified” or,

“Sorry the position was filled internally” (after hearing nothing for 3 weeks after their interview.)

So I started a weekly e-mail advice column to give them some ‘guerrilla’ style ideas and strategies. I called it “Job Search Success”. It’s been around since 2002. And helping job hunters is now my full time occupation with WowCV.net.

CV Writer, Job Search Coach Media Coverage

I’ve appeared on local and national radio stations, in national and local newspapers and I’ve lectured MBA students, opened careers weeks at leading universities.

CV Writer to Clients on Every Continent*

But actually, what I like, is to hole up in my converted horse-stable office – in the apple farming region, Elgin, near Cape Town, South Africa – and help my clients get better results in their job search – and I have clients on every continent (* except Antarctica!)

I’ve written a bunch of advice, both here on WowCV.Net but also over the years I’ve written some very useful guides.

Here are some examples:

  • My FREE e-Course: “12 Breakthrough Job Search Secrets”
    It’s a full education in what works and what doesn’t in the job market. There’s even homework. It’s intense, revealing and gives you some exercises to help get you back on track. I’ll be surprised if you’re applying even one of the secrets. Seriously. Your not applying one or more of these 12 secrets is the reason you may be battling in your job search right now. Without doubt.

Landlines and office addresses are not my style! One day I’m at a coffee shop or country club with my laptop, another I’m working from home, another I’m in another city for a seminar … you get the picture.
