Course Description

What is the course about?

This course will teach you how present and organize your CV in the way that hiring managers and industry professionals like to see it. So assuming you're looking to get into often highly competitive university programmes or industries, we'll show you how to make sure your CV is formatted in the right way to guarantee you get a fair shot when competing against potential hundreds or even thousands of other applicants.

Why take this course?

The creators of this course are graduates from The London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) and Tsinghua University (清华大学) - universities that have consistently been ranked among the best in the world. We have also had successful careers working in Financial Services recruitment roles across the world, working day-in-day-out with hiring managers from top tier bulge bracket investment banks, Big 4 consulting firms and premier investment funds.

We've also been helping corporate professionals and students aspiring to work in these prestigious jobs apply for various positions for the better part of a decade and have come to know what works.

A big issue we noticed with e.g. people just starting out or coming from non-western hubs was that although their content was strong, it didn't tend to conform to the preferred viewing format, hence they were perceived as simply "not getting it" meaning that their application would then be immediately overlooked. With the simple tweaks we teach you, you can make sure your CV always goes into the review column and not the "No" column which hiring manages unfortunately want to automatically put you in, so as to make their lives easier when having to go through lots of CVs.

After reviewing 1000s of CVs we're able to confidently advise as to what works. With our proven and tested CV format design, within about an hour of watching our videos, you can create for yourself a great and professional looking CV that meets the grade, benefitting from hundreds of hours of work that has gone into developing and refining our service through tonnes of R&D.

With this course you’ll save lots of valuable time and energy in trying to figure out how to have your CV looking the "right" way. We've done all the leg work for you so there's no need to re-invent the wheel. In addition, you'll save a lot of money by not spending 100s of $$ on getting one-on-one personal help with this. So if you want to create a CV that helps you get the position you want, then this course can help you do just that in a few easy steps.

How long will the course take to complete?

It should take you just over an hour to complete the course.

How is the course structured?

The course will be step-by-step instructional videos walking you through the process. This course will also include advice throughout on what should and shouldn't be included on your CV and why, and in addition lots of other general tips, dos and don'ts.

Instructor Biography

CV Guide, CV Professionals

The creators of this course are graduates from The London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) and Tsinghua University (清华大学) - universities that have consistently been ranked among the best in the world.

We have also had successful careers working in Financial Services recruitment roles and have worked with professionals across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and America, successfully placing Analyst to MD level individuals in key financial centres  - London, Hong Kong, Dubai and New York, working day-in-day-out with hiring manager from top tier bulge bracket investment banks, Big 4 consulting firms and premier investment funds globally.

We've also been helping corporate professionals and students aspiring to work in these prestigious jobs apply for various positions for the better part of a decade and have come to know what works. A big issue we noticed with e.g. people just starting out or coming from non-western hubs i.e. ex US/UK was that their content albeit being strong, didn't conform to the preferred viewing format with the result being that they are then perceived as simply "not getting it" and their application being then immediately overlooked. This motivated us to begin offering our services on a mass scale because with the simple tweaks we teach you, you can instantly make sure your CV always goes into the review column and not the "No" column which hiring manages unfortunately want to automatically put you in, so as to make their lives easier as they tend to be inundated with applications.

After reviewing 1000s of CVs we're able to confidently advise as to what works and doesn't. There has been a great deal of demand for our services over the years and as our time is a finite resource, we weren't able to help as many people as we'd like with our one-to-one consultancy services. This got us thinking, "What's a simple and affordable way that we could provide lots of help to lots of people?" We decided on offering our proven and tested CV format design, where with the click of a button and within about an hour of watching our videos, you could create for yourself a great and professional looking CV that meets the grade, benefitting from hundreds of hours of work that has gone into developing and refining our service through tonnes of R&D.
