If you send in your CV, you want it to represent the best of you. However, creating a good consultancy CV is hard. You can only make it so good by yourself and frequently well intended advice conflicts or is not applicable.


Conclusions about consultancy CVs

As founders of the Inside Coach, a platform dedicated to consultancy, we have by now seen hundreds of consultancy CVs.  We have also seen the feedback with regards to which get invited at consultancy firms and which don’t. A couple of conclusions:

  • If you want people to read the descriptions of your individual experiences, make sure you make them easy to grasp
