Jerry Frempong is a director at CVLondon, the UK’s number 1 career consultancy service. He’s helped thousands of jobseekers create professional CVs and covering letters that help secure and interviews and ultimately win jobs.
Jerry will be showing the Academy candidates how to avoid the common mistake people make with their CV’s. â€˜People tend to write vague, non-targeted personal profiles’ says Jerry, â€˜and often not listing a good set of key transferable skills on their CVs. Creating a well written personal profile / elevator pitch that is accompanied with a definitive list of good key transferable skills will most certainly capture the imagination and attention of a potential employer’.
Jerry cut his CV teeth working for a government-funded organisation in London, where he successfully assisted long-term unemployed people back into sustainable employment. He then established his own organisation, CVLondon, to assist anyone in need of CV help and advice. His team of four expert CV writers advise graduates, senior managers, and CEOs from across the country.
â€˜A well written CV goes hand in hand with work experience when securing an interview’ says Jerry. â€˜It’s a huge advantage for you to use your previous and current working experience to show to an employer how you may add value to them, but it goes without saying that your CV has to stand out’.
