Build yourself a future - post your CV online
You may not think of it as such, but a professional CV is a living, breathing thing, your lifelong companion and best friend.
Oh yes, lifelong. Because your career doesn't stop when you've landed a job does it? It simply moves on a step. Which hits you hard when you suddenly remember that like most people in the UK, there's a good chance you'll probably change your job every two or three years.
And yes, every time that happens, your professional CV is the first step to securing that next new job. Now ask yourself, if you're going to go through this job-changing thing over and over again - you've probably already figured it's the best way to advance your career - shouldn't your CV be ready at all times, polished and up-to-date, so you're never caught out in a scramble?
Better still, shouldn't your CV be out there, where employers can see it, showcasing you and how good you are for your entire working career? The best jobs, as you probably know, are the ones that never get advertised. You don't go looking for them, they come looking for you - seemingly out of the blue from an employer who's done their homework, knows who you are, and wants to make an offer. Easy, right? But only when the employer has a way of finding out about you.
How to post your CV online for a job in the UK
Actually posting your CV on a job site is really easy. The trick is keeping it there - ready and searchable by every talent-hungry employer who comes looking - updated with every new achievement, carefully detailed with every new skill and responsibility.
So what if you're not looking for a job at the moment? Of course you're ambitious, so aren't you always in the market for something better? And though you're not actively looking, isn't it reassuring to know that you're constantly being considered - and recognized - as one of the yardsticks by which everyone else can be compared?
How about if your existing employer sees it? Though you might not think so, making your CV available online and keeping it up-to-date is not disloyal at all. If you're good at what you do, it's a way of making sure that your talents are properly appreciated and that you're paid accordingly - a good way to maintain a balance of the job you're in.
After all, Curriculum Vitae means "the story of your life" - an ongoing record of your capabilities. It's there because you're rightfully proud, and want the world to know it. Of course, your name and contact details are withheld for your own security. Besides, shouldn't it be a matter of pride to show off how good the team is where you work? If not, count on it - you'll get snapped up by another employer who appreciates you better.
How wrong is that? Assuming that you're good, of course and that your CV stacks up properly - never a problem if you're guided by Bradley CVs. Want a new job or to build on your current career? Then try out our job site's section.
