Employer bins CVs

Every time I think that we’ve probably said all we need to say about CVs, another one crosses my desk which just makes me cringe!  Despite all the information on our website, in our careers resource library and the sample CVs on CareerHub we continue to see CVs which have little if no chance of being shortlisted.

Yesterday I came across a short interesting video published on the Careers NZ website.  It takes you through an employer who is shortlisting applicants for a current vacancy.  So, rather than write yet another blog on helpful hints for CVs, I’m going with the old adage ‘a picture paints a thousand words’.  If you have recently sent off CVs and not been offered an interview or not even received an acknowledgement of receipt of your CV I strongly recommend you have a look at this one-minute video

 

Remember we have daily drop-in times for you to bring in your CV and cover letter for a quick check.  Take advantage of this service and make sure your CV gets placed in the ‘yes’ pile!  Check the myVictoria Careers & Jobs tab for daily updates or log directly into CareerHub:  http://careerhub.vuw.ac.nz
