There are a range of benefits to being FITREC recognised (support, transparency, differentiation, assistance with professional development,…) but there is one area where your FITREC profile can really shine – when looking for new opportunities.
Your FITREC profile is a much better reflection of your abilities than your CV. Why? The majority of CVs are poorly put together and fail to highlight your relevant qualifications and experience.
Employers want to know that you’ve maintained your professional development. Nothing demonstrates this more clearly that a FITREC profile. PLUS, as there are no minimum ongoing education requirements, you can still maintain an active profile with all previous learning without the need to gather points for the sake of it.
Your FITREC profile shows employers that you’re invested in your career. In an industry that is renowned for high turnover, employers look for evidence of commitment to a fitness career.
References are right there for the recruiting manager to see. The purpose of the CV or FITREC profile is to get the employers to call (it’s from there that you secure the interview). While references on a CV can make a document cluttered and long, the references on your FITREC profile are designed to compliment without getting in the way.
Your FITREC profile is a dynamic record of your achievements. If an employer wishes to check back on your progress, maybe with a view to offering a position in the future, they can see exactly what you’ve achieved since you last spoke. A CV, on the other hand, is static and out of date the moment anything about your career changes.
