How to write a CV when you have no recent work experience

by | CV tips | 0 comments

I work with a lot of mums who want to return to work after staying at home to look after children and one thing I consistently hear is that because they haven’t been in paid employment for some time, they won’t be able to get a job. And yet today another such mum who I had worked with contacted  me to say she had just accepted a job offer and was looking forward to starting work again after a period of 6 years.


The root of this problem comes from the belief that they don’t have any skills  along with not knowing how to sell themselves on their CV.

Hopefully this short video will give you some tips on how to write a CV when you have no recent work experience.
