Finding a new team member has been both rewarding and exhausting at the same time. If you hadn’t already seen it, we welcomed a new team member recently. Altus has joined Agora as our Creative Assistant. We love the growth but what we didn’t love as much was the hiring process. You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a CV that stands out.
We received over 200 applications for the Creative Assistant role, that gave us the opportunity to learn a lot about what makes a good CV and what makes the best ones stand out. If we’re being completely honest, when there are hundreds of CVs to look through, the slightest error and a lack of stand-out quality could result in your CV being tossed to the side.
We have put together a list of dos and don’ts to help you put together a successful CV.
In today’s volatile job climate, getting a good head start is critical. Keeping your CV short, relevant, professional and appealing to look at can give you a foot in the door. Regardless of the outcome you should ask for feedback on your application. Whether you were hired or declined there was a reason. Learning and improving from each application process could be critical to you getting the next job.
