Tailor your CV to get to the top!

If you’re currently searching for a job, you probably already know how important it is to have a great CV. However, did you know that tailoring your CV to the specific job you’re applying for can significantly increase your chances of being selected for an interview? In this webinar, part of our employability series, former ITonlinelearning Recruitment Advisor Janzelle discusses the importance of tailoring your CV and provides tips on how to do so effectively.

The goal of tailoring your CV is to make it more consistent with the job description of the role you’re applying for. By doing so, you will be highlighting your relevant skills and experience, making you a more attractive candidate to potential employers. Janzelle uses a CV that was crafted in the first webinar on the Importance of a Good CV to showcase the areas that should be tailored, such as the roles below your name, your profile/professional summary, and your skills section.

One of the key reasons why tailoring your CV is so important is because of something called the Applicant Tracking System (ATS). This is a software used by recruiters to streamline the recruitment process by filtering CVs according to keywords and qualifications. Over 90% of large corporations in the UK use an ATS, so it’s crucial that your CV contains the right keywords and phrases to get past this initial screening stage.

In addition to discussing how to tailor your CV for a specific job, the webinar also covers how to tailor your CV for a speculative application. During the Q&A section, Janzelle answers some frequently asked questions about tailoring your CV, such as how often you should be doing it.

If you’re new to the job market, or if you’ve been struggling to get responses to your job applications, this webinar is worth watching. By the end of the session, you’ll have a better understanding of how to tailor your CV effectively and increase your chances of getting hired.
