Carol Lewis, Business Features Editor, The Times

  • Example CVs, including entry level and executive CVs
  • Demystifying of CV formats and styles, including 'hybrid', competency-based and functional CVs

In Knockout CV he shows you how to write CVs and cover letters that convey your strengths quickly and get you into the interview room.

"A comprehensive and practical guide to building arelevant, evidence-based CV which will win the recruiter'sattention. Looks afresh at the role of your CV, the pitfalls to avoid and shares invaluable recruiter insights."
Liz Mason, Associate Director, Alumni Career Services,London Business School, UK

"You write a CV for a purpose: to get a job. Knockout CV works backwards from the desired result, analysing each feature of the CV from the perspective of impact on the decision-maker. No frills, no diversions, simply full of practical help."

With his clear chapter objectives, insightful exercises (especially the 'CV data bank'), professional insights,and a healthy dose of humour, John Lees sets the standardfor modern CV writing."
Matthias Feist, Head of Careers & Business Relations atRegent's University London, UK and Chair of PlaceNet: Placements in Industry Network

Yes, you can expect to work some, however John's advice plus your investment in time will produce a great result with the critical bonus of mental and emotional clarity over your next (right) career move."
Angella Clarke-Jervoise, Big 4 Partner Recruiter andInternational Career Coach
