A CV, which stands for curriculum vitae, is a document used when applying for jobs. It allows you to summarise your education, skills and experience enabling you to successfully sell your abilities to potential employers.
It is your chance to make an impression in front of a potential employer. Even if you have all the credentials in the world, a poorly written CV will not change anything and won’t land you the job. However, a well-constructed CV could ultimately land you that dream job.
Hunting for a new job is extremely stressful especially in this country, and that stress really affects job applicants. The fact still remains that there are jobs out there. Unfortunately, a bad CV can end your job search before the job processes even start.
Maybe you have been sending your CV to recruiters, firms or companies but no response. Here are the top some reasons why recruiters pushed a CV aside and. Let’s highlight some of the reasons your submission does not get a call or message for an interview.
1- Your CV has typos and errors: A CV filled with typo and errors indicates who you are as a person.
2- Your CV is boring: If a recruiter doesn’t use an ATS to review CVs but does it manually, the least they want is to be bored by a CV.
3- The length of the CV: As much as you want to fit all your education, experience, skills and achievements on your CV, make it short.
4- CV has a picture on it: As this isn’t a visa application if they need to see what you look like they would call you for an interview.
5- Funny/Inappropriate Emails: Emails such as bigboyxxxx@…com, firstname.lastname@example.org. Whenever a recruiter sees funny emails, they push CV aside.
NOTE: The mistake on a CV can seem little but the effect on your job search can be profound. Work towards having a CV that showcases your unique experience and can land you a job.
