Recruiters are very busy people, and typically have little time to read and select CVs for any given role. For them it’s a filtering process, often starting with a pile of CV’s and throwing out the bad ones before reading in more detail, the ones that are left. Therefore your task is NOT to get thrown out with the bathwater, and ensure that your CV is one of the ones that makes it past the first cull!
So how do you stop your CV being thrown out?
Well, it’s about clear presentation and clarity of content. A typical recruiter will take literally seconds to decide if your CV is worth reading in full, rejecting or selecting.
So here are a few tips that you should consider when creating or revising your CV...
