Come January, everybody's turning their thoughts to New Year, New Career. But how do you go about getting that new career or new job if your CV is looking tired and jaded. Especially when you've taken a career break. 

Today I talk to expert CV writer Orla Cahill. Orla has a background in HR. She is an associate member of CIPD and supports professional mums to re-launch their career after an extended period of absence from the workplace. Based in London, with clients all over the world, from Crouch End to California, Orla runs the CV Clinic. 

We discuss: 

  • The secrets to a successful CV
  • How to target your CV for specific jobs
  • The things you should never do on your CV
  • The different types of CV and which works best in different situations 
  • Specific tips for ambitious women who are returning to work after a period of absence e.g. a career break or redundancy
  • Top tips if you are currently drafting a new CV.
