What would be really interesting would be to follow up to that statistic….
I wonder what the demographic of this 41% is? Are they younger people because they are using smart technology in bed?
Whatever their situation a dynamic, upbeat, knock your bed socks off review and rewrite of their CV might be enough to get them out of bed.
Do you have a friend or family member who is in bed for the wrong reason? Give them a reason to get up!
"Everyone hears only what he understands."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
An important lesson at any stage of life, but when writing about yourself (in a CV for example) and striving for clarity of message to achieve understanding for your readers, some thought about what you are saying and how your are saying it is essential. Moreover with the written word more care is needed. Punctuation gives meaning because you can write as you would speak, with all the important pauses and emphasis.
My point? That we should all invest a little more time in making sure we can be understood.
1. Write your CV in the third person as it conveys your message in a more professional way.
2. Use positive action words to ensure you are communicating your achievements and personal profile powerfully.
3. Make sure you tell the truth and can support anything you write in an interview situation.
4. Focus on your achievements rather than just the responsibilities of your roles.
5. Check and double check your spelling, punctuation and grammar.
