Is your CV strong enough to get you an interview?

We all know how rare the perfect job is, and when it comes along you only have one shot at it - mess that up and there's

no second chance.

The worst that can happen is you send in a CV which is sub-standard, or doesn't sell you in the right way or quickly enough to capture the interest of the recruiter - remember, this recruiter will probably have a huge pile of CVs to go through and will likely read them very quickly.

This makes them very critical and, unfortunately, not very thorough.

The main reasons that CVs get rejected (other than you are simply not suitable, of course) are: -

It is too wordy or too long,

The relevant detail is buried in the middle somewhere (or isn’t there at all!)

There are spelling mistakes

It is simply not written in language which is strong enough

If any of the above apply to your CV you will probably NOT be getting an interview.

So when you go to send off your CV, there’s that moment when you think, “Does my CV do me justice? Does it actually

say all the things I need to get across in those important first few seconds of being read?”

My advice?

Get it checked out before you send it.

Get a professional’s opinion on whether it’s a winning CV with compelling reasons why you should be interviewed,

or whether it will end up on the ‘thanks but no thanks’ pile.
