I’ve lost count of the number of times during a CV Consultation I have said: “why isn’t that on your CV?” And the stock answer is: “Not really thought about it”. It happens every time.
Why rewriting your own CV is like putting lipstick on a pig – it’s still a pig
So why does this happen? The answer is simple. Once you are asked the right type of questions the right type of information flows. But when you are in a bubble, you are restricted by your own limiting thought processes and stifled by your preconceived ideas of what you think should go into a CV, unconscious bias even. Paradigm thinking suppresses tapping into information that exists beyond the boundaries. That and part laziness – it’s so easy to spot a lazy CV from a well thought out CV.
