“Your article advice on CV writing is great. When writing a CV, always remember the essential: your target. To boost your chances of being noticed, the Recruiter should be able to identify with your CV straightaway: use at least 4 or 5 key words from the job advertisement.

A CV should be clear and concise. If a second language is required: send also a version in this language, without tying, spelling or grammatical errors”.

The comment and tips were sent in French. The following is the original text:

« Parfait pour les conseils sur le CV ! Essentiel : la cible : que le recruteur puisse identifier en un seul coup d’œil les 4 ou 5 mots clés utilisés dans l’annonce afin que la candidature soit retenue dans un premier temps.
Importance : clarté et concision : Si une seconde langue est requise, envoyer le CV dans cette langue ; aucune faute de frappe, d’orthographe ou de grammaire.
Astuces : Vous les avez écrites ».

"I enjoy reading your blog as it gives very useful information to people like me – working on restarting his/her professional life after a period of expatriation. Your useful tips help to deal with this situation in a stress-free mode and help to methodically face few challenges. I highly recommend Brid’s articles to anyone who knows they have to do something to find a new job, but they don’t know how to do it”.

"During a period of professional reorientation where I needed financing, I used the advice of Brid to write my Skills-Based CV. Thanks to her advice, my Skills-Based CV convinced the financing organization. I highly recommend her articles".

"As an expat myself coming to the end of my current contract and planning to return home to Ireland, I found the article "La Perle Rare", particularly helpful. I will soon be searching for job opportunities. Undoubtedly, I do have to distinguish myself from the crowd. Following the suggestions and advice given by Brid, with self-reflection I discovered that I have an abundance of highly developed soft skills. These are skills I had taken for granted for so long never thinking they would highlight my uniqueness to a potential employer. In the past, my focus was on my qualifications and work experience. Although this focus is important, there is room for self-promotion too. Now, I shall forge ahead with a renewed sense of myself and the confidence to promote my other strengths in interviews. Thank you, Brid. I strongly recommend Brid’s blog to expats who find themselves seeking new job opportunities “. Fiona
