CV Help Guide

On average UK employers can receive between 50 - 300 CVs for each position that is advertised. These will then be narrowed down to around 15-30 CVs & from this selection between 3-10 will be called for a first interview.

This demonstrates the importance of your CV. Your objective is to create a CV that does not get thrown away in the first glance but then passes the 1st review stage and wins you that first interview.

If you feel that you are not getting enough interviews, it would indicate that your CV needs to be rewritten as it is probably being discarded.

You need to make sure you display your experiences and skills in the correct format as this is the right way to catch your potential employers attention.

Your CV is designed to do one thing, which is to get you an interview.

On average your potential employer will only spend between 20-40 seconds on your CV.
