Updating your CV is crucial to landing a new role

When Liz faced redundancy, she was offered a National Careers Service session with Inspira by her then-current employer. Looking for advice on updating her CV and refreshing her interview skills, Liz found the meeting to be very useful.

"It provided me with great advice on updating my CV, including relevant bullet points and keeping past info, over ten years old, to a minimum." Liz added that by also learning and using The STAR method for interview skills, "it helped me secure my new role!"

Happily settled into her new job as a full-time content writer, Liz would encourage anyone in the Lancaster and Morecambe area to contact Inspira.

'The help available through the National Careers Service gave me the knowledge and confidence to go for my current job role. The interview skills help was particularly useful. I love my job – I enjoy coming to work each morning."

Liz also had some advice for fellow professionals, "Even if you think you have all the answers, you may be surprised! Things move on, and it's easy to imagine the CV you wrote five years ago is still relevant when it isn't.
