you need to go back to the drawing board


Or did you save your last employer money? Were you able to negotiate better deals with suppliers? Save the company money on the tax bill? Perhaps you reorganised the transport department or production line and made time and efficiency savings? That is all still money on the bottom line and in today’s cost cutting world, very important to any employer.
Put yourself in their shoes. Does your CV clearly point to the benefits of hiring you over anyone else? What can you do for the employer? Get a friend to look over your CV and ask them what they think are the benefits of hiring you. If they’re not sure, you need to go back to the drawing board.
