94% of CV’s ‘binned before interview’

Posted on Tuesday, May 12th, 2009 by

Did you know that a simple spelling mistake could be all that stands between you and your perfect job? A study of 450 CV’s by Personnel Career Management has found that more than nine out of 10 don’t make it through to the next stage of the recruitment process, dismissed because of simple mistakes such as grammatical or spelling errors and clumsy language. “Competition is intense, particularly given the current climate, so we ensure that each CV we manage isn’t just vetted for spelling errors but presented in a way which gives candidates the best chance of making it to interview,” says Suzannah Chapple, Chapple Managing Director.
