CV Writing – COPY do not use

An advertised job often gets lots of applicants. However, only one person is going to get the dream job. Will it be you? Or, will you miss out because you didn't deliver an impressive CV and a well-crafted cover letter topped off with an optimised LinkedIn profile?

Many applications get rejected due to poor presentation, wrong wording, lack of clarity and mismatched CV and Linkedin information. Recruiters look for an excuse to exclude you, not to include you in their "long listing".

At 11 Recruitment we process 30,000 CVs and cover letters per year, so we know what stands out. Unfortunately 98% of applicants fail to impress because:

  • Their CVs are typical ordinary in presentation style and content,
  • The Cover Letter is missing or full of irrelevant information,
  • Their LinkedIn profile is incomplete or inconsistent with CV.

An employer is looking for a High Achiever and will expect a CV, Cover Letter and LinkedIn profile to reflect this as they skim through each application. The employer wants a WOW.

  • Tailor your CV to the job vacancy
  • Address the selection criteria listed in the job ad.
  • Remove sections and wording that works against you.

LinkedIn profile for job hunting

If your CV and Cover Letter gets the attention then 95% of employers will look you up on LinkedIn.

Not having a profile will go against you. Having an incomplete or not impressive profile may give the employer reason to put your application back into reject your application.

  • Get a personal brand that sets you apart from your competitors.

Focus ahead

When I talk to CEOs and Managing Directors they don't talk much about cost savings anymore. That activity has run its course. Most companies are much leaner now than 5 years ago.  There is not much more to be gained by focusing on costs. They are now talking about how to increase revenue. Hire more people. Different type of people - people with different skills. Therefore, some people might need to "retool" themselves. Either formally or doing it at home in front of the PC. YouTube is for many the best tutor in the world along with Google. It is possible to learn almost anything with a determined effort to gain knowledge. Along with increased competencies often come not only job opportunities but also pay rise and increased job satisfaction and a lot more.
