Does your CV take more than 30 seconds to read?
Published: 12 Jan 2015
If so, there is a great chance that much of the time you’ve spent including lots of detail has simply been wasted. Think about it from the point of view of the recruiter. They have a pile of CVs on their desk and an anxious line manager who needed to recruit someone yesterday. Most CVs are scan read and given less than 30 seconds to work their magic. Your CV needs to convince the reader to call you to interview as quickly and as powerfully as possible.
A two page CV is ideal for almost all job seekers. Even the most seasoned supply chain professional should aim for a two page CV. Employers are only really interested in what you’ve been doing most recently. So you need to focus on the last five to ten years of your career. Anything further back than this should be neatly summarised.
