How your CV can help you through a difficult job market.
Unless you don’t listen to the radio, read the papers or watch the news on TV it is quite hard to miss the bombardment of negative stories about the Irish economy. Recession, job loss and debt are all words unfamiliar on these shores for well over a decade. Developments over the last year have a direct impact on job hunting and therefore individuals need to get themselves in tiptop shape when entering the job market.
The most important change in the job market is that there is now more competition facing jobseekers. In recent years many employers struggled to source suitable candidates often employing a less than ideal recruit. Now there are less companies recruiting and more unemployment so more people looking for work. This means that there will certainly be more choice fore employers. Jobseekers will have to make sure that they have an IMPACT CV, utilise all available job search strategies and sell themselves at interview.
CV – IMPACT CV
Fortunately for you most CV’s are poor. This means that if you put some effort into your CV you will increase your application to interview ratio. The more interviews you get the better chance you have of landing a job. You need to consider CV Layout, CV Format and ensure that your CV is focused. Remember your CV has a short window of opportunity to make an impact so don’t waste this opportunity.
