Workday Blues

Back in January, we noticed a huge spike in downloads for our resignation letter templates. This is nothing unusual; we see this trend each and every year. We noticed something new though this April.

Should I Put Colour On My CV?

In most schools of thought you should never put colour on a CV. We have seen many CVs though that have used colour with striking effect.

Choose The Right CV Template

Think about it for a moment: employers are seeing on average forty CVs for each vacancy that is posted. That is why you have to get the right CV template from the outset and not some washed out quicky that you found on the first website you came across. If you had to read through […]
