Your Curriculum Vitae is your opportunity to impress a potential employer with your skill set and experience. When applying for employment, your CV creates an impression about your professionalism, intelligence, and attention to detail, and is your one chance to communicate any key achievements and professional attributes. While you may earn the opportunity to portray yourself further at interview stage, first impressions count enormously - and these are given by the presentation and content of this very important document.
Studies have shown that a recruitment manager may spend only up to 15 seconds deciding whether to accept or reject a candidate based on the CV. And while each employment opportunity may generate an average of between 100 - 300 applications, only around 4 - 12 of these will make it to interview stage. As these figures show, the way your CV is written and the details it contains is of huge importance.
