This morning I got an email from Ivan Wood, a great London-based cameraman, who I mentioned a few posts back.

He bought my book on writing a CV for Television, and spruced up his CV. He now says:

Just wanted to update you, as you might want to add it to your blog, but things have been going well, so thanks for the CV stuff again. I’ve had the chance to film in China, Sri Lanka and for ITN on multiple occasions since I updated everything 🙂

Now obviously, Ivan has to have the camera skills and talent to do the job, however, he believes that after reading the book and having some one-to-one sessions with me, the improvements he made to his CV and the way he approaches finding work has influenced the work he’s been offered. The modest amount he invested in his career has repaid itself, not just in more work, but the chance to film amazing places, adding some great footage to his showreel!

If you want to get more work, then get cracking on improving the way your CV communicates your skills and experience.

You can buy the book direct for £10, or from Amazon for around £12. You can get it as an eBook for Kindle for £9.

If you buy it direct today before 4pm, it’ll be in the post to arrive tomorrow. Spend a couple of hours over the weekend implementing its simple but effective techniques, and make sure your efforts to find work are much more fruitful!

(Prices correct at time of posting)
