Why Are You Being Overlooked For Suitable Roles?

Why Are You Being Overlooked For Suitable Roles?

“In the current job market, where applying for a role is as easy as clicking a button on a website, your CV really needs to stand out among the many applications received.”

The executive job market is competitive and many applicants aren’t even making it to interview stage for jobs they’re more than qualified to do. Frustrating, yes, but surprising? Not really. At CV Knowhow, we see hundreds of CVs every week and the quality varies dramatically. Even senior executives, who have recruited staff themselves, are sending out CVs which frankly don’t meet today’s standards and expectations.

In the current job market, where applying for a role is as easy as clicking a button on a website, your CV really needs to stand out among the many applications received. If you’re not getting results, you need to consider whether your CV genuinely presents the very best version of you.

Your competition will be candidates already marked as “high potential”, meaning they can demonstrate a strong academic background, rapid career progression, diverse operational experience, extensive leadership exposure and a solid record of achievement in senior positions.

It’s likely that you have at least some of these traits too, but if they don’t come across clearly on your CV you won’t even be getting your foot in the door for an interview, let alone receiving a job offer.

When you order from CV Knowhow, you will be allocated a personal CV Consultant. They will conduct an initial consultation of up to an hour, ensuring that they fully understand your target role, previous experience and areas of expertise.

Your consultant will then produce a draft for your feedback, based on your original document, your LinkedIn profile and the consultation call. When you’ve had a chance to review it, your consultant will work collaboratively with you on making any necessary amendments until you’re 100% satisfied with the product.
