    Hello all, well I did a big change to my CV and seems to have attracted a bit more interest, which is always good (Although only from recruitment agencys :( )

    Was wondering is there any thing else I could do that would make me "stand out."

    If I have posted in the wrong section I do appologize.

    Please find my CV below ( better than the last one I think! )

    Criticism welcome ^_^

    Perhaps change this to "Currently studying towards Microsoft certification which includes MCTS, MCPD and MCITP"

    Hmm, it's hard to say as it's just 'my opinion', I have read hundreds of Cvs in the past and they all differ. Also i am not a CV writing expert, so, lets see what the others think. :)

    It looks good, its just wording problems. I spotted this one

    "to work well either individually, or as a team"

    Should be something like "to work well either individually, or as part of a team"

    Well I have been contacted by a agency in regards to a 3 month contract in a helpdesk position. They think I will be ideal for the role. I explained to them although I have some experience, it is not my main role currently. They said I seem to have the knowledge and have asked me to bulk up my help desk features on my CV. Now I don’t want to lie. I do act like a help desk so much that it is rare that our IT department is contacted because of me. I just don’t know what else to put. Thinking what I do I go kind of blank. Any idea’s on what else I could add to “bulk” up my CV a bit?

    An agency will tend to do that as they get commision if they place you!

    However, it might get you a job but remember agencies just want one thing & that's a commision.

    I would reword this one mate

    "Due to staffing in the office I did no longer do any paper work admin and soon got promoted to Recruitment Consultant and I still had to be available to offer on site PC help."

    I don't have a great deal of experience writing CV's, but I DO have a fair amount of experience in copywriting. I think that you've listed some great information - your main strengths and competencies are certainly pushed to the fore - but the delivery is a little cumbersome. If you can wait until the weekend I'd be happy to help you tidy it up a little :)
