I have been in the industry for over 5 years and progressed my way into a Relief Captain's position.  My skills have changed throughout that time, and i would like my resume to start reflecting more of a Captains "seeking" role. Any extra help i can find to ensure i'm getting the best out of it would be great

If anyone can be of any assistance in this field i'd love to hear from you

Aside from changing the subject, the CV writing is an artwork - check the relevant rules and guides on that too.
Right strategy and frame will increase your chances much.

It is tough enough out there at the moment to get any sort of Captains gig ...... why help? Crew agencies offer good advice.......

Pete - a bit of good advice. For years, when reading CV's I am keen to see how the individual expresses themselves as much as I am keen to see the information contained in it. I hate and loathe manufactured CV's and will easily dismiss a candidate if it looks like the work of a so called CV Guru. Agents that tell you to re-write your CV and do it differently, drop them, go and find someone else. Get all relevant information on it, but then express your talents in how YOU present it.
