The CV Book is the definitive guide to CV writing, authored by James Innes, the Founder and Managing Director of The CV Centre – the UK’s leading CV consultancy. James is widely considered to be one of the UK’s leading experts on the topic of CVs; it is arguable that nobody has more up-to-date, relevant experience. The advice given is tried, tested and proven on a daily basis within The CV Centre – responsible for writing tens of thousands of CVs annually.

The CV Book includes free bonuses such as CV and cover letter templates for download and immediate use. The templates cover all circumstances – from graduates to executives, and include ‘special cases’, e.g. legal, medical, IT, teaching, etc. There’s also a special offer for The CV Centre’s services.

A key feature of the book – nothing quite like it exists in competing titles – is a chapter covering the 15 most common CV writing mistakes and how to avoid them (based on extensive statistical analysis The CV Centre has undertaken of many thousands of CVs). Only a tiny percentage of CVs manage to avoid all these mistakes and most are victim to several. Avoiding these mistakes makes all the difference to whether the CV ends up in the ‘yes’ pile or the ‘no’ pile – also known as the bin!
