I just read Quincy’s You in 6 seconds: how to write a résumé that employers will actually read. It’s given me a massive kick up the arse to improve my CV. I’m now trying out novoresume.com, the service shown in the Elon Musk CV from the article.
- Has anyone used this service? Would you recommend it?
- If so, is it easy to customise your CV for every application you apply for, as Quincy recommends?
- Does anyone know of any other good CV-creation services?
Also, any thoughts or comments on Quincy’s article generally? I think it’s got a lot of great advice, but I’m really not sure about the advice not to include a photo. I can see the point Quincy makes, but I think a photo instantly turns you into a real human being for the recruiter, which is probably valuable.
