by Nara Kaveripatnam
Kindle Edition: 38 pages
Publisher: Nara Kaveripatnam
The “CV and Resume Templates” is designed for corporate executives who are looking to turbocharge their career by positioning themselves as “Authority Personal Brands”. This book goes beyond just answering “How to write a Resume” or How to write a CV”. It deals with personal branding.
A recruiter views the CV or resume for less than 6 seconds to decide its fate…and your fate. Get the first sentence of your CV template right and it will open doors for you. If your get this wrong, even the best of CV or Resume Templates cannot save it from going to the dustbin.
I call the first line the “Branding & Positioning Line”. The rest of what you write in your CV or Resume template exists to support this first sentence.
Professionals don’t fail because they lack skill or experience or because they don’t know how to write a cv or how to make a resume. They fail because they don’t present their credentials effectively. The 6-Second Branding eBook series will help you get ahead in the race and make companies “want” to pay you more to get you. This eBook takes your focus away from the CV or Resume Templates and firmly puts the focus on your personal positioning and branding.

1. A credible personal branding statement that communicates your brand message effectively.
2. You are likely to get paid more. Brands always earn more. Companies will be ready to pay you more to get you.
3. It will make recruiters “want” to hire you.

5. You will move ahead of the pack and significantly increase the chance of getting hired, every time.
6. Confidence in yourself. You will be surprised at what a properly positioned & razor focused introduction statement can do to your confidence level.
