You’ve landed here probably because you’ve searched for ‘cv4tv website’. That’s what my blog about creative industry cvs was originally called.
When I first started trying to help crew because I was receiving more and more applications for every job we posted at Napoleon Creative. We get so many responses we can’t spend long reading each CV, so those that do not hit the nail on the head hit the recycle bin pretty quickly.
I started running workshops called CV Surgery back in 2007 to teach small groups how to write a great CV for the Television industry. The course was based on my 15 years of experience in the industry and of running my production company, backed up by industry research. I also started writing this blog, sharing some of my thoughts and experiences in media recruitment, calling it cv4tv. It did what it said on the tin!
I’ve now written these up these ideas more fully as a book, Clearly Creative CVs. ProductionBase recommends that crew read the book because I teach you the skills you need to write a corking CV. You will confidently make your skills crystal clear to any employer even at a quick scan, and get your CV on to the ‘interview’ pile rather than the recycle bin. It explains simple marketing techniques you can use to increase your chances of winning work.
As the years progressed, and I developed my company, I because more interested in coaching. I believe coaching creates a really important space to reflect on your work and plan for your future. I decided to play on my Clearly Creative idea and call it Clearly Creative Space. When you have a coaching session with me, you’re entering a space where you can think creatively with clarity.
So there we go. That’s how the cv4tv website evolved into Clearly Creative Space!
