Distinguishing yourself is the key to success

‘Design is not just what it looks like. Design is how it works’ . . . Steve Jobs

In a competitive market it is important to make sure that you are getting noticed.

Having a paper CV and a covering letter is the standard way of applying for a new job, but being standard is one thing we are definitely not. By analysing your job spec and looking closely at your potential employer we create a unique approach that speaks to them directly.

A cover letter is your paper handshake; it is your chance to introduce who you are, and how you and your skills can benefit an employer and their organisation. Many people don’t take the time to write a powerful cover or spec letter; they keep it generic. Making your letters specific and more personal is a sure way of getting shortlisted. Our approach is to create an easy to read, catchy and relevant letter that will get you noticed.

At CV Medic we know in a changing market that one must have an edge. Digital CVs and having a brand-like online presence are other ways to getting noticed and creating a buzz, before you have shaken a single hand

Welcome to the world of Personal Branding . . .

In today’s market it helps if you create your own brand. What is stopping you from becoming your own Nike, Pepsi, Coke or Apple?

This can be achieved by establishing a personal brand that allows you to differentiate and position yourself from the competition, to claim your job. In this case, your audience is the hiring manager and recruiter who deal with hundreds of CVs each day. Candidates are viewed as commodities, unless they provide some unique value which competitors do not share. Our goal is to make you stand out, and in doing so you could land your dream role.

Growing Your Brand

Personal Branding is an ongoing development that exists throughout an entire lifecycle. As your experience, competencies, physical and emotional attributes grow, your brand will enhance, much like in a product-lifecycle. Creating, maintaining and evolving your brand will help you command your prospective audience and positively communicate your perceived and unique message.

Corporate branding and personal branding are very well connected. The only apparent difference is that instead of marketing a product or service, an individual is being promoted and sold to a recruiter.
