It sounds simple enough but this happens to many applicants, and most can’t understand why.My tip is to make sure your experience skills and achievements, match the job descriptions needs and that you clearly make them stand out on your CV.There have been times when an applicant has rung me, wondering why they haven’t been put forward for the job I am recruiting for. I am always open to help someone out if this is the case and let them know why! Sometimes it may just be the case that they do have the skills and experience needed, however they are not on their CV or made clearly!If you are struggling to write the best CV you possibly can, I recommend visiting here where the team at Core Talent have personally put together a CV guide to help you out!
