Skills Assessment Matrix (SAM)

Back in Feb 2017, I produced this video on how to improve (or “turbo charge”) your CV content using this Skills Assessment matrix (SAM). 

For as far back as I can remember, I have been using this approach to not only keep tabs on my CPD but also my skills profile. It certainly helped me out….

A couple of you reached out to me asking me about career progression, CV etc.  This inspired me on to reintroduce SAM. 

Hope you enjoy this short video and also the download below to get you going.
