Getting Started with a PMO CV
At the PMO CV Workshop in July, PMO Practitioners got together to work on improving their CV.
There are three crucial areas of the CV – the opening profile, the career history and key achievements.
Here’s what they learnt about the three areas:
Create the opening profile of a CV which is guaranteed to tick all the boxes and get yourself noticed for all the right reasons. It will focus on understanding your own Unique Selling Points.
Learn how to write the career history part of your CV – conveying your skills and experiences in the way that hirers want to read. Learn to write about each position in your career – focusing on the facts that prospective employers want to see. You’ll learn about the power of combining responsibilities with key project competencies.
Include hard-hitting key achievements that help you stand out from the competition. Catch attention for specific roles – learn out to mix and match key achievements for maximum impact.
Until we run another PMO CV Workshop in the future, (take a look at the previous PMO Mini-Masterclass if you can’t wait) in this article we take a look at the beginning stages of creating a CV – the things you have to think about before you even put pen to paper.
