CV Do’s and Don’ts
Helping you create a winning CV
How to keep your CV ahead of the competition
￼Your CV is your BRAND! it represents you and as such is the first impression a potential employer will make on you. A CV will also give an employer an opportunity to see if you have the necessary skills for the position they are hiring for.
A great CV will give you an advantage over the competition
Most recruiters and employers have a process for sifting through the potential hundreds of CV’s they will receive for an advertised position. The normal process is to scan a CV for no more than 20 seconds then sort into 3 piles.
The first pile is a definite YES, this means that they will look at your CV in detail later. The second pile is the MAYBE pile this will be looked at if there is not enough good CV’s from the first pile. The third and last pile is the NO section these are CV’s that aesthetically don’t look right.
It may seem unfair for a CV to be placed in the NO pile without someone looking at the detail but recruiters need a system otherwise they could spend weeks and months looking through these documents.
