We'll admit it - in our business of recruiting, CVs are pretty important. In fact, they're the essential link between candidates and jobs. How you put yourself across as an employee becomes a consuming task. But this person in your CV is not all you are.
Success, business skills and your position and salary do not alter who you are as a person, so you need to ensure you're working on your own personal, inner "CV" that represents all your best features and an awareness of any flaws you want to work on and self-improve. After all, this is the CV you'll be presenting at the pearly gates - and let's be honest, the big man upstairs won't be so interested in your project management skills or mastery of Excel.
Think about how you want to be remembered and who you are outside of work - that's what will last.
Our world is set up to honour individual success, and businesses are set up to reward aggressive single-mindedness in their employees. In that system, “goodness” is a bonus, not a necessity. So, how do you become a “good” person, when social media and the world at large only celebrates people who are “bossing”/“owning”/“disrupting”/“crushing” it?
