So, you’ve been in your current job role for a few years now and you’re thinking of a change. The first thing you need to do is update your CV and get rid of the content that’s no longer valuable.
Remove any information that no longer supports your current career goals to add valuable space. Employers want to be able to look at a CV and immediately know what you want to achieve and what you can add to their business. Old irrelevant positions can be shortened of grouped together as additional work experience to take the bulk out of the document.
Make sure you’re including all relevant skill sets you have that are relevant to the career path you’re taking. If you’re returning to a previous job or going into a new role then draw out the relevant experience you have that could be more useful. You may want to reword things or reposition them to make them stand out more.
If you are thinking of a radical change, be sure to not rush into anything major too soon. It can sometimes be tempting to go full speed ahead without properly weighing up the pros and cons. Sometimes all you need is a minor change to get back on track to where your heart really is.
