Hiring managers and recruiters review a lot of resumes, so it’s important to make yours stand out. One way to do this is by using action words in your resume. These words can make your resume more compelling and show the hiring manager that you have the right skills and qualifications for the job.
It’s safe to say that there is a lot going on in the talent market and as a candidate, who has a certain salary expectation, you need to stand out from the rest. Luckily, you’re in good hands. I recruit in the QA space and have the inside scoop that will help you stand out from the crowd.
Job Seeking can result in such an emphasis on your CV, that you almost forget everything else at your disposal to help get a job. Trust me, I’ve been there. You may not realise that your LinkedIn profile is just as important as a CV in helping you get a job!
How often have you found the perfect job, applied online and not heard anything back? In too many cases, good candidates miss out on being shortlisted due to a poorly written CV. In my job as an IT Recruiter, I review many CVs daily, and the bad ones always stick out. Your CV is a chance to make a great first impression, so it’s essential to get it right.
Have you ever thought about how Hiring Managers examine your design portfolio and how you can set yourself apart from the rest of the applicants? As an IT Recruitment Design Consultant, it’s my job to investigate a designer’s portfolio every day before forwarding their job applications over to my clients. This has helped me learn significant details on what works and what does not.
Did you know that the tone, words and the wishlist you use in a job spec will have an impact on who applies to the job you’ve listed? It’s very true, for example, women are less likely to apply to roles if they don’t check every requirement listed.
Is it time to ditch the old black and white Microsoft Word CV layout for something more fun? I’d say yes. In today’s competitive job market it is crucial to stand out from the crowd as a job seeker.
For a hiring manager, seeing the same eyesore resume layout can be dull and repetitive. Adding a bit of creativity to your CV should catch their attention.
The job spec really sets out the tone for the job and the employer. Get it right, and you will get more, better quality, applications, and therefore end hire. Get it wrong, and you can damage your brand in the talent market, and really struggle to get the right hire. This can be costly.
