You need to update your CV… Now what?

At a seminar I taught called “Marketing Brand YOU”, I told participants that getting ready for a job interview was pretty much the same as marketing and selling oneself. You are the product; the job interview is the sales pitch; and everything that comes in between that–your CV (curriculum vitae or resumé), the way you dress, the way you walk, how you conduct yourself even before and after the interview–is all part of your marketing and PR strategy. Everything works in concert to land you that job.

But don’t take it from me; I’m just an expert at communicating. 🙂 Take it from these guys at Monster.com, who have made it their business to match jobseekers and employers. Thanks to this wonderful website (which is one of my personal favorites) called Slideshare.com, we now have access to a Monster presentation aptly titled: “Awesome Words to Use on Your CV.”

No, seriously!! As someone who has made a living out of words, I know that your words will make or break you. Check out this presentation for some cool words you can use to pimp your paper. 🙂

Then you can thank us later 🙂
