For those of us who have some leave over the Christmas/New Year period, we also have the opportunity for reflection and consideration to our year ahead.
It’s a time when we talk about New Year’s resolutions and goals for 2020. We consider our work/life balance and our career aspirations. As part of our thinking process the prospect of a new job is often contemplated.
Updating or creating your CV? We spoke to CV expert Jo Hazlitt from CV Edge to understand the elements you need to include in your professional CV.
It’s easy to let your CV become outdated, or you may not even have one. Jo creates professional CV’s for everyone from school leavers, to those returning to work and CEO’s across a wide range of industries.
Her advice is one CV doesn’t fit all jobs; you need to tailor your CV specific to each job application.
“New Zealanders don’t know how to promote themselves, they are quite humble. My job is to promote their personality, experience and qualifications for the job they are targeting.”
Jo recommends the length of your CV should be 2 pages, “keep it short and to the point” and to use bullet points for clarity.
Finding a job is now even easier with our revamped PN Personnel website www.pnpersonnel.co.nz .
With a clean and simplified look, you can easily navigate to the information you need.

“If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life,” Marc Anthony
The workplace is an ever-changing space, the traditional 9 – 5 Monday to Friday work-day has been replaced with more flexible working environments. New technologies make it easier for us to work remotely, but also harder to switch off from work.
People want choice, for their work and for their lifestyle. Temporary work is becoming more than a stop-gap between permanent roles and a fast income. More and more people prefer and consciously choose to work on temporary work assignments or fixed term contracts because of the many benefits it provides.
