Recruiters never ignore good talent and a well written CV is the first sign of that.

You will not get a second chance to make a first good impression with employers. It’s therefore very important that you develop a professional high impact CV that not only gets you noticed but also impresses.

In today’s online world of e-mailed CV’s and job boards employers have seen a huge increase in the number of electronic job applications. These applications from both qualified and unqualified candidates has made it much harder for suitable job seekers to stand out.

1] The CV is a weapon with one specific purpose: to win an interview.

It is a sales letter. Just like a house or car, you are a precious commodity and you need your CV to display your talents in the best possible light.

2] Your CV needs to be well presented and include all the relevant information.

Over 70% of CVs are missing vital information and, as a result, are discarded by an employer.

3] Research shows that your CV will be quickly scanned, rather than read.

Research shows only one interview is granted for every 200 CVs received by the average employer. An attractive CV can put you amongst the favourites for the job, before you’ve even arrived for interview.
