A Professionally Written CV

Are you hunting for the perfect job? Hong Kong's economy is booming and there are lots of good jobs on offer.

The first thing you should do is get your CV written! Pull out the file from 15 years ago and update it with your current experience.....

Seems simple doesn't it? But do you know that one average a human resources guy will take only 30 seconds to read through a CV before deciding whether or not the candidate should be shortlisted? Companies get hundreds of applications for every popular post they advertise these days, so getting yourself noticed and past the first hurdle is very difficult.

Although business is booming, the number of good candidates is also increasing. The popularity of further education (professional and academic) means lots of people have MBA's and MSc's. Lots of people even have PhD's! So qualifications are not going to make you stand out from the crowd either.

For higher end jobs (Senior manager, executive director, partner and so on) you can use networking. But every time a friend refers you to someone with a possible job opening, the lead will ask for your CV.

What is more important is that for these executive level jobs your CV is likely to be read by a foreigner - an American, Briton or Australian - and they will be very critical about the standard of English.

What you need is a professionally written CV that can accurately convey your experience and knowledge in each specific area with perfect English.
