In order to keep themselves successful on the job market, Umbrella contractors need to change the way they present themselves by keeping their CVs up to date. A strong and up to date CV is essential.
The managing director of The CV & Interview Advisors, Matt Craven, recently said that instead of presenting their career experience in chronological order with half a dozen bullet points underneath each job, candidates should treat each contract as an evidence-based case study. He said that the Case Study Portfolio Approach provided the most effective framework for professional contractors to write their CV.
This style of framework would provide contractors with more flexibility and allow them to tailor their CV to the roles they are applying for in a much more effective way,
Mr. Craven concluded by saying the recruiters would still want to see dates of employment, and that a career chronology section should be put in after the case studies with the date, company name and your job title.
