What does my CV need to do if I am changing career?
Date: 06/23/2011

If you have decided that your current function (e.g., Sales or HR) or industry is really not something you want to stay in, then nine times out of ten your current CV will be inadequate.  As any recruiter will tell you, your CV needs to speak to the employer’s specifications around knowledge and skills, so presenting a CV that faithfully reflects your past roles and responsibilities will make you look like a complete mismatch.

In most cases, but not all, you will be forced to present your experience in what is called a functional CV format.  A functional CV, as distinct from a reverse chronological CV, will bring out your transferable skills and experience that demonstrates potential to perform the role.  It also downplays your past roles so that the reader focuses on the relevant aspects of your experience. 

The best strategy is to focus on areas of experience where you have real strength: if you can convince an employer that you are strong in 1-2 core skills for the new role then you stand a much better chance of success.  You can then position your other experience as an added bonus to set you part from others.

It is always useful to consult a professional cv writer when seeking to change career as it is quite a challenge to step outside of your past to recast your experience in a totally different light.

Fish pedicure safety in question
Date: 03/01/2011

Health experts are investigating the safety of fish pedicures after concerns that this latest pampering craze could spread infections.

The treatment involves dunking the feet in tanks filled with Garra rufa fish that can nibble away dead skin.

The Health Protection Agency is concerned this could spread diseases from person to person through open wounds.

It was first contacted by worried environmental health officers.

Feet feeders

A Health Protection Agency spokesperson said: "Following a number of enquiries to the HPA from local environmental health officers over the past six months, the agency is currently investigating if there are any potential risks of infection associated with the commercial use of fish spa pedicures in the UK.

"Alongside colleagues in environmental health, Health Protection Scotland and the Health and Safety Laboratory, the HPA will examine the most up to date evidence of any possible risks associated with Garra rufa fish pedicures and will publish guidelines that will be available UK-wide.

"The HPA and Health Protection Scotland is currently unaware of any cases of infection associated with the use of the fish spas pedicures in the UK."

Tiny Garra Rufa fish, or "doctor fish" as they are affectionately called, are a type of toothless carp that nibble on the dead skin.

Their use in spas across the UK has been gaining in popularity.

In the US, however, some states have banned their use over health and safety concerns of having the same fish clean the skin of multiple customers.

Old pandemic flu vaccines may plug shortfall, PM says
Date: 01/06/2011

The government is considering using left over vaccine from the swine flu pandemic to plug the shortfall in jabs this winter, the prime minister says.

David Cameron said the Department of Health was "working hard" to tackle the problem after reports that some areas have run out of the flu vaccine.

The government confirmed on Wednesday there were "local supply" issues, but denied there was a national shortfall.

It has also asked suppliers to see if there were spare vaccines in Europe.

But it is thought that there are only about 100,000 doses at most and so using the pandemic vaccine that was left over - there are millions of doses stockpiled - could provide the solution.

The vaccine is different from the jab being offered this year, but as swine flu is the dominant strain in circulation it could offer some protection.

Mr Cameron said: "There is a national stock of flu vaccine from the pandemic of 2009 and while that vaccine is slightly different... it does have some of the common characteristics.

"So one of the urgent discussions at the Department of Health right now is to work out whether that vaccine would be useful.
