Jon's Story

I really wanted to make a career switch. I knew I had to do something very different with my CV.

Healthcare Sales

In a nutshell

Failed the six-second test, needed a CV that highlighted his qualifications.


Jon had great work experience, but his job accomplishments were buried in his CV. He needed help highlighting his selling point and telling his career story.

Jon had a lot of experience in healthcare technology, but he was looking to change careers using his software skills in a different industry. If he wanted to switch careers, he needed to tell a better story and highlight how his work experience and technical skills could add value to a new employer. Jon’s CV was too long, and his achievements were buried too deep to be noticed by recruiters.

The CV was well beyond what I thought I would get back with the amount of effort I put in.

How We Helped

Jon bought the Executive Level CV-writing package, which includes a CV and three revisions. He was paired with top CPRW certified CV writer, Missy, who worked with him to:

  • Highlight career accomplishments that were relevant to the job applications he was targeting.
  • Develop a career statement and areas of expertise section to set the tone.
  • Limit the details of his early career history to take his CV down to two pages.
