Welcome to the CV Pilots blog!

At CV Pilots, we understand the challenges of writing an effective CV, preparing a convincing cover letter, or ensuring that your LinkedIn profile is fully optimised so that it appears when recruiters search for potential candidates for a role they are looking to fill.

As we address these concerns with our clients on a daily basis, we created a blog where you can pick up practical tips and advice - whether you are a seasoned executive or applying for your first position out of school or university.

In the coming days and weeks you can expect to see thoughtfully curated and relevant content on topics including:

  • Which CV formats to use
  • Most common CV mistakes
  • Cover letter dos and don’ts
  • How to be strategic when looking for a new job
  • Leveraging your LinkedIn profile effectively
  • Being ATS and ‘auto-recruiting’ savvy

We look forward to sharing our expertise with you!

If you have any career-related questions or concerns, feel free to send us an email at team@cvpilots.co.uk to let us know what you would like to hear more about.
