As a contractor, sourcing your next contract is an integral part of the many challenges you face. Although an expert in your chosen field, how good are you at marketing yourself effectively?

A pivotal component in marketing yourself is an engaging CV that sets you apart from others. The current climate dictates that your CV not only identifies your experience, but critically must champion the value you could add to a new client. Experience alone no longer cuts the mustard! Time is money in your business – consider your average daily rate and balance this against the number of unpaid days you spend seeking new contracts. Is this process viable?

In short, your CV is a sales brochure. Paying for a professional CV is a worthwhile expense and the key question is this:

Will it represent good value if you exchange a day’s pay (or half a day even!) for a professionally composed CV that very quickly increases your chances of securing that vital new contract?
