    To Witch - a huge, massive thank you!

    Still recovering from a period of poor health, I asked 'Witch' if she could review my CV for me, as it had spread to 3 pages long and was a bit of a waffle.

    The help that she gave me was even more welcome, because my ill health has left me feeling very fatigued all the time and generally very run down. I really have no energy or effort to do anything, nor could I get in the mood for a CV re-write!

    'Witch' not only critiqued my CV, but went about re-writing it for me to help me even further, the result being I now have a 2 page, neat, nicely flowing CV which I am very pleased with.

    I am extremely grateful for not only her help, but the kindness she showed me by helping me out more than she needed to.

    So, to 'Witch' - thank you so much for helping me. A simple thank you doesn't seem enough, but you told me it is, so there you have it

    Good luck with the Job Hunt.

    And why are you getting all the rep when Witch did all the work.

    EDIT: Ahh, now I've worked it out. All these people now know where to send their CVs for a brush up.

    @witch, might be a good time to make room in your inbox (or maybe make sure it's full )

    I've currently got two to review but after that I will be open to receiving some more.
    I just want to help, and this is something I CAN do - whereas my techie skills are nowhere near most of yours, and I don't think anyone wants to learn to play the French Horn

    I have just had a thought. When I have a bit of time I might do a 'rough guide to your CV' with some basic pointers as to what to include (and what not to!)
    Do you think this would be helpful - there are some guides on the web already but I don't know user friendly they are.

    Indeed it would! I've just a got a guide and examples from our Careers lady in school, with the threat of redundancies here I'm updating my CV just in case!

    As the cuts get deeper Witch, think job security is getting less and less.

    Everybody will benifit if you do a guide.
