visa granted now the hard part !! CV's

Recommended Posts

Guest andybhoy

Hi all , We have had our permanent residency granted in april this year. looking to move to the Brisbane area before the end of the year .I am a stonemason to trade and have been working on a self employed/sub contracting basis for 11 years now , meaning i have been working on contracts for many many companies over the years and completed loads of smaller jobs as well , I am trying to put together a CV/resume at the moment and pulling my hair out as I dont know how to word my work experience and companies worked for etc , has anyone been in this position before or can anyone who knows about reading or writing CV's advise me on what sort of thing to put in as i cant list every company I have completed work for or list every job I've done as it would take too many pages and I hear companies dont like very long Cv's , this is the first one I have done since leaving school !! :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

Hi

My partner is a Carpenter / Joiner / Builder, he too has had his CV dilemmas, but found giving a generalisation of work done from some of the biggest jobs such as new builds and factories down to the smaller jobs such as conservatories, garage bases and stone steps a bit of roofing and the more complex work on listed buildings, he also has a portfolio built and a web site, this seems to be acceptable to most although he intends to go self employed asap, hope some of this has helped, good luck.

Hi , thanks , it's given me things to think about , I had tried writing one listing main contracts I have been involved in and a summary of other smaller work completed , but I still don't think it looks too good when I don't have any companies listed that I worked for . I hadn't even thought about the portfolio but I'll get onto that one !! Thanks again for your reply , Andy
