I came up with a new and highly creative CV last week. I was inspired to do this after I had attended an interesting and enlightening CV workshop the day before.
Here is a definition I had found for CV.
Curriculum vitae is a Latin expression which can be loosely translated as [the] course of [my] life.
I like the above definition. It puts things in perspective for me. After I had completed my creative CV, I took some time to read over what I had written. It made me realize that I have been working hard to attain my career goals. Maybe this was due to me putting what I had done and what I am continuing to do, down on paper.
I had placed the above jpg logo into my CV. I will place some of what I had written down below:
ATOCONSULTING.COM: FEBRUARY 2005 - to present.
I came up with a new and unique learning and development solution, the likes of which I have yet to see anywhere else, through atoconsulting.com
Entrepreneurial thinking employees can be an asset to any company. The Guardian states that 77% of recruiters had used search engines to find background data on candidates. The Huffington post reported that 80% of recruiters use Google when screening potential hires. Google is the top search engine in the world.
If you would like to find out more about me and about the work I am doing, I will save you some precious time by directing you to the most pertinent info.
The learning and development solution in mention at the top of my CV is: School of The Remote Influencer.
Please Google the following:
I won't place the rest of the text from my CV. I had placed five bullet points with the corresponding info next to the points. The whole CV was done in bold. I made the font size quite big too so as to capture interest from recruiters.
My CV should show recruiters that I am a creative thinker and that I have research skills plus project management skills. These are sought after skills to have. I will be adding more work to the bullet point areas over the course of time. These bullet points can be like e-portfolios in some ways. I have added my web site and my social media business pages in these bullet points. My CV will encourage recruiters to use Google to look up School of The Remote Influencer and my other sites, pages etc.
When they look these things up, they will see that I am indeed an entrepreneurial thinker as I had stated in my CV.
The other good thing about this CV is the fact that I do not need to update it as my work with atoconsulting.com is ongoing. Here is a link to a blog post which explains why I chose to use the atoconsulting.com domain name:
