C.V. Services
Posted on: Thursday February 3rd, 2022

Are you hoping to land your first job after school or hoping to regain the workforce after being unemployed?  Well, the Fingal Centre can help. First impressions count and for many future employers your C.V. will be their first impression of you.

The jobs market is competitive, with a single advertised position maybe getting 10’s or even 100’s of applications from would be employees. Therefore it is important  to make yourself stand out from the crowd and a well crafted C.V. can help you do just that.

A good C.V. should highlight strong keywords, show off your skills and abilities and let your future employer know how suitable you are for the position and how much of an asset you will be to their company.

Building such a C.V. can be a daunting task to many. They want to present their experiences and skills in a manner that will stand out and get them that all important interview or job.

If you are struggling to write such a C.V. then we can help.

Our team of professional C.V. writers can help guide you through the process, create the perfect layout to show off your experience, skills and education, in a way that will catch the eye of  any future employer.

We will help you craft that perfect C.V. for that perfect job.

In 2019 the centre provided 534 C.Vs to members of the community. Just look at what some of them said about our services.

If you need forms printed off or help filling them in, then please reach out to us. Our team of dedicated information officers are available daily to help. The service is free and there is no need to book in advance. Just call into our centre and speak in confidence with one of our supporting officers.

As well as providing information the Finglas Centre also provides a number of small computer related services for a small cost including printing, scanning and photocopying. If you wish to inquire about any of this service or anything else, then please call us on: 01 8845228
