Get up to £10 from Jobchange!

The winter is slowly arriving and so is our magical, wintertime offer. Due to massive popularity of our previous “Don’t be crabby” card, we have decided to expand our promotion and as the weather conditions are changing, we’ve replaced the good old crab with a new, fresh and cool… penguin! Well, enough of the introductions, Ladies and Gentlemen, we would like to present you with… Penguin Card!
Penguin Jobchange

How does the offer work?

All you have to do is to bring this card for your first appointment. When the advice session finishes, simply show the card at the Reception and let our super friendly Receptionist pass a £5 note straight into your hands.

 

How is it different from the “Don’t be crabby” card (apart from featuring these astonishing penguins?).

If you decide to take part in the IT workshop on your second appointment you can claim another £5 which brings the total amount to £10! And since it’s cash you can spend it on whatever you want: travel expenses, flowers for your mother, cheeky Nandos or even a selfie stick (According to our independent research, you will afford more than one).

What are the rules? 

There is one: You qualify only if you are our new client or if we haven’t seen you for the last 12 months. That is how we can afford to run this fantastic offer. Not to worry our existing customers, we’re thinking about exciting offers for you as well!

So don’t wait, keep your eyes open and as soon as you notice the card, grab it and dial the number on the card to make an appointment! We can’t wait to see you in Jobchange offices in Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall, Telford, Bridgnorth or Shrewsbury.

What to do when CV isn’t working?

We’ve all been there. After going through hundreds of e-mails, numerous job suggestions, another hundreds of vacancies on Indeed or Monster we finally find it. The perfect job. The salary is right, responsibilities sound like something you want to do and they offer immediate start. It looks amazing, and you want it. Usually the steps are simple. Fill in the short questionnaire, attach your CV, Cover Letter and click… submit.

And that’s when the countdown begins.

From that moment we start to wait and wonder. Will they call us back. Will we see an e-mail in our inbox which doesn’t begin with this frightening (which at some point switches from frightening to annoying) phrase: “Unfortunately, on this occasion your application has been unsuccessful …”

There are obvious things which need to be considered before applying for the job. Experience. Skills. Education. All these need to be worked on constantly if we want to progress. If we want to develop. If we want grow, improve and succeed.

So what do we need to do with skills, education, experiences we have already acquired. When we have the perfect job advert in front of us and we are a click away from submitting our CV.

The CV? Oh yes, let’s have a look at it. Just a quick last look.

• Does it match the job requirements?

• Does it show the most significant responsibilities from past jobs?

• Is it up to date?

• Does it include all the information about you which can enhance your chances for the interview?

• Is it unique and tailored to your personality at the same time selling your best job matching skills and abilities?

All the changes done? Perfect! Don’t waste your time, submit it now! Sometimes, however, nothing comes to your mind, even after you read half of the internet and look at your CV every ten minutes.

If you’ve got enough of altering your CV, employers not responding to your CV, the answer is simple: CV improvement session.

Career Advisors are here to look at your CV, review it and cure it. Distill it. Pull out the best bits, make it stand out and make it noticeable among other 600 CVs sent for that post. Simpy, improve it to make it successful.

If you are tired of the indifference and lack of change, we are ready to help. And we will do it for free!

Among other companies which charge from £50 per CV we are the one which can provide you with professional service and won’t charge you at all. Our tasks is to make sure that our clients get back to work. And that is why you can be sure that we give 200% to make sure your CV looks perfect.

CV preparation service is available on a daily basis in our offices and sites all over Black Country. Simply, access the tabs at the top of the page for contact info or to book yourself in for a CV Improvement session. We can’t wait to boost your CV!
