The Shortlisted is the UK’s First Career Magazine from a Serial Job Interviewee.
This online career magazine promotes truthfulness & honesty in all things related to careers & recruitment through outspoken & cheeky content you won’t find anywhere else.
The Shortlisted also provides the following career-related services: a Free CV Review, a CV & Cover Letter Writing service and The Shortlisted’s Therapy: Career Advice Programmes for Lost & Confused People.
It’s all founded by me, Silvia, a freelance writer and illustrator addicted to The Catcher in the Rye who, in the effort to look, change and explore different career opportunities, has been shortlisted by as many as 99 companies in 5 years over 4 different countries. I have carried out a total of 120 job interviews between 2010 and 2015 in France, Italy, Spain and the UK, and am still alive, apparently. You can see the list of companies here.
After trying an embarrassing number of jobs and eventually finding my way as a freelancer, thanks to massive inspiration from Lord Sugar & co., I then decided to put my weird talent in getting job interviews at the service of job changers.
So far I have helped plenty of people in getting the right job in pretty much every existing industry. Here you can read what people say about my work.
I also got three books published on a national scale in Italy, my native country, and I like hand-drawing.
A bit less cool, I suffer from Dyscalculia, which means that I struggle with numbers and calculations, time zones and map navigating, and I can tell left from right only in politics.
I am not a blogger.
Here is a bit of what I’ve done in my professional life.
