    Hey all. Recently did a CV and would appreciate any advise. Please kill it if you want.

    Also career advise. I am at a cross roads now. Recently reached 25, still living with parents in bournemouth area, no money, in debt - not happy where I am at all at the moment.

    I have a degree which I graduated in 2008 including a placement year in i.t. support. Recently returned from an internship in a bank in new york for a year. I worked as a PMO analyst and also studied for a Post grad cert in business. Luckily my previous employer kept my job open for me in I.T. Support at a school, where I am earning a pittance, the working environment isn't great and there is no work to do.

    So I have a few years I.T. support experiance and a year PMO work in a bank. I am stuck on what to do. To say I am having issues finding further career options is an understatement.

    I am trying to get the motivation to do Prince at the moment which hopefully may add something further to the CV. View attachment certforums CV.doc

    See attached CV mate. Added comments to it. You just need to put a little more care and effort into your CV. Right now it's a little lazy and rushed with not much in of any substance. Experience means **** all if all you put is "Managed Domain" and three key skills.

    I agree with Westernkings that there should be a 'Profile' at the top followed by 'Key Skills' (or 'Personal Profile' and 'Key IT skills' if you prefer).

    one thing that stands out for me is that you change jobs on a very regular basis. some employers might not like this. might be worth mentioning if they are permanent, part-time, contract etc.

    Ok thanks for your suggestions. Keep them coming if anybody has anymore?

    I will make changes as suggested. It does seem like I change jobs frequently. However as you say two of the jobs were internships, one was part time and current one is school terms only.
