Molly approached us as a very successful marketing executive who had moved roles just as coronavirus struck.
As a result the position she had accepted never materialised, and she had to start applying all over again.
As someone who had been used to almost instant responses from recruitment companies, she was puzzled when after months of applying she had only received two replies. She sent her CV to Workagain for a review.
It quickly became apparent that it had been written in a way that AI systems could not read it. In addition, the story she told was not focused enough on results, but much more a description of the roles she had been carrying out.
After a complete rewrite, passing it through our systems to ensure it could easily be machine read, replies once again landed in her inbox.
After two months she was successfully back in work and thoroughly enjoying her new role.
“After sadly being made redundant from a new role in July 2020, I was really struggling with receiving responses from employers.
In a very competitive job market due to COVID-19, I had applied for upwards of 60 jobs and had only received 2 replies. I knew I needed help as this was very unusual for me.
I had a call with Guy from Workagain, and he immediately pointed out some very simple reasons why my CV wasn’t being noticed and how to change them. He also helped me reformat my entire CV and change the way my key responsibilities and achievements were written down.
He made some very interesting and useful points which made me really think about how I should be advertising myself as a strong candidate for the roles I was applying for.
Once I had reworked my CV with Guys help, I was receiving more responses for roles I applied for and even had recruitment agencies contacting me about new roles. After roughly 2 months, I had accepted a new role which was so exciting and such a relief!
Thanks Guy for all your help, and I would recommend Workagain’s services to anyone struggling to secure a new role.”
