Case study for a young professional
Age: 20-25; Profession: Law; Years of experience: 3
Sam H, a law graduate with 3 years of experience, was looking for extra support with his CV and cover letter. He was struggling to get interviews at his top choice law firms. His main issue was the ability to provide examples that supported his application. Sam was not keen on hiring a coach and wanted an immediate answer to his CV related questions. Sam did not want to miss out on any chance of being selected for an interview at his top workplace.
Sam signed up for Transition Peak Module 3 – CV advice and module 4 – Cover letter advice. The cost of the modules was £65 each. By the end of week 1, Sam was able to watch the module videos, read the associated documents, checklists and finally create his CV and cover letters based on the key points in the modules.
By the end of month 1, we followed up with Sam and learned that he was invited for an interview with one of his top choice companies. Recruiters take an average of six seconds to scan a resume. It is believed that a CV that does not reflect professional and personal skills the right way can hurt as much as one year of unemployment.
