Always check that your CV matches the job!

Posted on: 28 Apr 14


Do you check the wording of your job application matches the job.

When you apply for a role, make sure your CV matches the "keywords" and experience requirements listed on the job description. You can do this by simply reading the job advert carefully and making notes of the kind of words they're using.

This might be technologies, therapy areas, skills etc. Once you have your list, cross check this with yoru CV and covering letter and make sure that these words are included at least once. Don't go mad and spam-fill your CV with so many keywords that it's undreadable, but check that most of the words are there,

If you can't include the words because you dont have the right skills or experience them maybe you need to apply for a different job!
