The preference about the format, and the content of the CV is something that depends on the person reading it. Each recruiter has its preferences. Recruiters receive tonnes of CVs and they discard them quickly. This becomes more complex when you learn that some recruiters do not like CVs.
A realistic scenario could be:
- Received CVs = 120.
- Required CVs to make call = 7- 5.
- Final list to be sent to business unit requester = 3.
So, what is the right way to capt their attention?
One way is to study their profile on LinkedIn.
In the same way than the single more important talent in selling is to understand the buying process; at the moment of finding a job, the more important talent is to understand the recruitment process.
