Switching Jobs: How Temwani leveraged from her new CV!
Your resume is one of your most important career tools. But many professionals have no idea where to start, what to include, and what to leave off of their resumes. That’s where Otto Resume comes in. We can carefully craft your career story to target the job that you want to land.
At Otto Resume we believe your resume is valuable and important because it’s the first point of contact with your potential employer. To learn more about how Otto Resume is impacting lives through creating career success stories, We did an interview with Yanjanani Phiri. Yanjanani wanted to transition from one job to another, he needed help highlighting the job skills he had that could translate when changing careers. His original resume simply didn’t give recruiters a good idea of his career goals.
What challenges did you face Career wise before you got in touch with OTTO?
Ans: Before having my CV done by Otto, I could count how many interviews I got called for on one hand, better yet with 3 fingers in one year! I had a challenge of me thinking I was not good or smart enough. I never got called for job interviews despite my tenacious efforts in Job applications.
How was your Job Application Process before you got in touch with OTTO?
Ans: It was very slow. I did not have faith in the CV I had then and that did not help the few interviews I attended any better. I lacked confidence during the entire process.
In what areas did you need help with and what Impact has OTTO added towards your career?
I always like to think that your CV is like the clothes you wear. It says a lot about you whether or not you like it. My CV was generally not well organized and did not look as professional. However, after my encounter with OTTO, it was like a magic spell. I began sending out job applications and got called back for a good number of interviews within a short space of time. In addition, I got compliments about my CV from my potential employers. OTTO also advised and added important skills to my CV that I thought were not so important. My CV was a huge confidence booster in myself and I answered interview questions with so much confidence. It has only been upwards ever since.
Any advice you would offer to someone looking forward to kick starting or making a switch in their career?
OTTO is the answer! In my time of job searching, I have learnt that apart from exercising patience and perseverance, a well- organized and professional CV (whether you are starting out or changing career paths) will take you places and give you confidence.
