Make the First Correct Impression with Your CV

As per career experts, recruiters spend only six seconds to read your CV.

Yes, you read that correctly! Six seconds!

All you have is 6 seconds to impress your recruiter.

How do you want to those six seconds to count? You think a little bit of luck goes in getting your resume into the recruiter’s hand.

No.

You have to work hard and create a job winning CV that is

— downloaded by the recruiter

— makes in first rounds of screening

— increases your chances of getting shortlisted

Take out time to polish important sections of CV where recruiter pays attention at the first glance.

#Jobs #Entrylevel #Freshers

For instance, if you are fresh out of college and looking for first job, your CV emphasize should be your college education and skills.

But if you have interned in advertising company and applying for a similar job role, it makes more sense to add the internship on top of your CV.

There is no strict rule for entry level job application CVs to add education on top.

#Jobs #Experienced #Jobseekers

To make a first good impression with your CV, you also have to understand the expectations of the job role as well as company’s culture.

If you have work experience, choose a CV format and layout as your industry. Because hiring managers see CV’s differently, as there are generational and industry differences.

Traditional CV Format works well and gets employer’s attention.

For example a finance professional could use a traditional format CV.

But if you are a graphic design or a social media job role, and mail a traditional format CV, you might not get the same attention and more chances are your CV going in the dustbin.
