A comprehensive guide to help you on your career journey

Sarah Davies

This is a great comprehensive guide to help you on your career journey. I really valued the guidance focused around career breaks and the bonus resources. I found it reassuring to know that I am on the right track and that there are many of us out there who are self-conscious about promoting themselves in job applications.

A very useful exercise

Becky Gilbert

I enjoyed working through the course, and found it well-written and easy to follow. In fact, I worked through it twice - once to familiarise myself with what I should be thinking about, and the second time more slowly completing each section of my CV as I went. What I have now is a solid first draft of my CV, with plenty of ideas on how to tighten and improve it for draft two. It has been a very useful exercise.

I just want to say how helpful I found this training. The videos and workbooks were comprehensive accessible, easy to understand but did not take long to work through. It was full of really valuable tips and tricks. The strategies provided were ideal for building on existing knowledge and experience. It really made me rethink how I present myself to prospects.

I liked the use of the videos, text, articles and the quiz

Helen Gleaves

Having worked in career development for the last 20 years, I have used my fair share of CV toolkits. I found this to be clear and easy to follow. I liked the use of the videos, text, articles and the quiz… kept quite a dry subject interesting! The advice on career gaps was really helpful as was the checklist.
