The first and most important step in any job search is always the submission of a CV. Whether you’re starting a brand new career or you’re getting back on the job market, your resume can make or break your job search.
Your resume is the ‘face’ of your application, and it is your first impression to recruiters and hiring managers, so it has to be attractive to ensure that you will be remembered and considered for the job.
Recruiters have to get through thousands of resumes in a short time. As per the study conducted by job-matching service, The Ladders revealed that recruiters spend just six seconds reviewing a resume before deciding whether or not a candidate is ideal for the job they are trying to fill. This means your resume should be formatted in such a way that it will create a lasting impression on the hiring manager within that 6 seconds.
