How many CVs do you think the average recruiter reviews per year? If a recruiter receives 50 CVs a day (its often much more), that’s 250 a week – that's 13,000 a year. So is it a surprise that on average a recruiter will decide within 10-20 seconds whether to shortlist your CV or move swiftly on to the next one?
Having spent over 12 years working in the technology & change recruitment space and by my calculations seen over 150,000 CVs (I know crazy), I have seen the good, the bad and the extremely ugly. I know what makes a CV stand out amongst hundreds of other applicants and what CVs will have a recruiter hitting the reject button before the end of page 1!
I have spent the last 5 weeks providing a weekly ‘Free Help’ clinic and although not solely focused around CV formatting and content I have found that this is what most of the 60+ sessions I held centred on.
I have heard horror stories of people paying up to £1000 for a ‘professionally written’ CV, which have not only missed the mark but have lost that personal touch – remember, no one can sell you as well as you!
