3 ways to ensure your CV will end up in the bin 

If you want to ensure you give yourself the best possible chance of an interview and to avoid having your CV thrown in the bin, don’t fall for these 3 silly mistakes. 

Spelling mistakes

The only way to avoid any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors is to have your CV checked by someone else. Preferably someone you can trust, and has some prior experience with CV’s.

Simply using the spell checker tool on your word processor is not going to be enough, as there are lots of things that could still go wrong. Not only could the spell checker decide to change a perfectly good word, but it may also want to re-phrase certain sentences which might not need changing. The spell checker will also miss any grammatical errors.

Sure, you should still use a spell checker once you’ve finished the CV, but then you need to check it yourself at least 5 times, and then pass it on to someone else for another proofread.

If you can find an expert in CV’s, then not only will your spelling be checked but you might also receive some free advice on what to change.

Failing to include all the sections expected 

This might be a simple one to get right, but you’d be surprised how many people still get it wrong. Whether they fail to include a cover letter or completely miss out the hobbies or references section, the simple solution is to use a CV template to ensure you don’t miss anything out.

CV templates are a great way to also ensure your CV looks professional and stands out from the rest. With literally hundreds of other applications, you can’t afford to make a mistake when it comes to all of the sections that are required.

Failing to show you meet the job spec 

Every job advert will provide you with the necessary information to ensure your CV is tailored to the role/industry. Most CV’s that will be sent in will be too generic and won’t allow the recruitment manager to easily see who is the best for the role. Who has the right skills and qualifications, or the right experience.

So in order to ensure your CV isn’t thrown in the bin, you need to write your CV according to the role you’re applying for. Make sure you use certain keywords and phrases that are present in the job advert. If they are looking for someone with a certain set of skills and qualifications, then don’t make it hard for them and bury this information within your CV.

Bring all the relevant information to the top of your CV and make sure everything is highlighted and easy to spot. When the hiring manager has hundreds of CV’s to read, they want there life to be as easy as possible, especially when they might only spend about 30 seconds per CV.
