From speaking to a client yesterday regarding @CORE Powered by BPM (how it helps candidates to stand out), the client mentioned they recently received a CV of a candidate not just detailing their educational, career history, key achievements etc but her core values, who she really was and what she had learnt in each role.

It got me thinking about my what CV and core values would look like. So here goes:

Pre work: Family

Treat people as you would expect to be treated by others!Manners cost nothing!

Early working life:

Role: Pot wash and Kitchen Hand

We’re only as good as the last meal we’ve served!If it’s not right, don’t send it out!A positive reputation talks years to build and days to destroy!

Role: Retail Assistant

You have two ears and one mouth!Listen to the customer and if you don’t have what they require,always offer them a similar alternative.
This was always fun whilst working on the trainer section at a well-known high street retailer

Role: Face to face, direct sales

Never assume!Treat every door as an opportunityEvery no is one step closer to a yes!Invest in some comfortable shoes!

Role: Telesales, Sports hospitality

The phone is like an aeroplane… If it’s not in the air, it’s not making money!Buying cheap isn’t always the best option! and we were cheap!Under promise and over deliver (Sadly this never happened)

Education

It’s ok not the be the smartest person in the roomIf you don’t understand, ask

Sport

You’re only as good as your weakest team mateNobody makes mistakes on purposeYou win as a team and lose as a team

Honesty, teamwork, transparency, hard work and communication were key in all environments

Oh and having fun helped!
