CVs & Resumes: Get Them Right to Get the Job Infographic
For people who are out of work, job-seeking can be a frustrating process, as time and again they are politely turned down for vacancies. It is hard to keep going and going after multiple rejections, but it may be worth thinking if there is anything you need to do differently – and that starts with reviewing your resume.
Recruiters aren’t going to be gentle and interview everyone who applies for a vacancy; only a small portion of applicants will be called for interview. If they see a resume that’s rife with spelling mistakes, superfluous prose about a trophy you won in 6th grade or meaningless clichés about being ‘a hard worker’ or ‘a good communicator’, they’re going to dismiss it immediately.
It is baffling how often the same basic mistakes appear repeatedly in resumes. The CVs & Resumes: Get Them Right to Get the Job Infographic from Ayers seeks to pinpoint what is best to include and not include so that your application will stand out from the pile and make a recruiter stop in their tracks. Check it out below, and then look back at your resume to see if you’re falling into avoidable traps. Maybe a few tweaks are all it takes to turn repeated rejection into a successful application.
