Using your CV and your LinkedIn profile to open doors with Laura Harmsworth 

When is the last time you updated your CV?

Is it worth getting your CV professionally written?

How is your LinkedIn profile different from your CV? 

This week on the podcast, I interview CV writing expert Laura Harmsworth. With a degree in geography and a career path that’s surprisingly similar to mine, Laura set up her business in 2012 to help people write CVs that open doors. If you have years of experience and are struggling to decide what to include on your CV, or if you’re ready to invest in having your CV professionally written, Laura provides a fantastic face-to-face service and a quick turnaround. 

Tune in if you want to find out why LinkedIn isn’t your online CV and how you can use the platform to enhance the information included in your CV and to add value to your connections. In the interview, I also share a few practical tips to help you create videos to post on LinkedIn – make sure you don’t miss the episode! 

You will learn…

  1. Why you should always tailor your CV to the specific role you’re applying to (even when that means leaving some information out!). 
  2. What recruiters and companies are looking for when screening your CV (and why you should keep it as simple as possible). 
  3. How your CV is different from your LinkedIn profile and how you can use LinkedIn to enhance the information you include in your CV.
