10 Reasons why you need a CV for a doggy career
In the current economic climate where finding a job is a very competitive process, prospective employers receive literally hundreds of CV’s when advertising a job opening. When they receive all these hundreds of CV’s to sift through and only have one position open, why would they want to read through yours?
1. The first 30 seconds
It is a known fact that a hiring employer will initially spend no more than 30 seconds looking at an individual CV before deciding to put it on the short list or not. A properly and well written CV will help you not only to make it through the first thirty seconds, but it will also help you through to the next step of the process.
2. All Employers asks for it
A CV or Curriculum Vitae is a vital document that you need to have when trying to find a job. It is very uncommon to walk into an employer and be hired on face value. Ninety nine percent of employers want to see your CV. To be competitive and have the edge over other applicants, you will need a CV that stands out and that will present you in the very best way possible. It is a short but precise presentation of your credentials and achievements and everyone should have a well written CV that they can be proud of and that do them the justice that they deserve.
3. It’s an introduction
A CV is like an introduction. It tells the employer what your name is, where you live and how old you are. It also lets them know what kind of education and experiences you have had and where they can contact you for a follow up interview.
4. It’s all about looks
The CV looks better than the rest automatically stands out and it is standing out in the crowd that will get you to go places. If it looks smart, it will get you there.
5. It identifies your value
Very often when we get asked, we do not give full praise to ourselves. A CV that is properly done will be crafted in such a way that it gives important and compelling information about you that will identify your value to the prospective company.
6. Saves you time
Instead of having to knock onto hundreds of doors of employers and having to explain yourself, you can have a CV and cover letter ready and ask them if it was okay to leave it in for the HR department, or if they are hiring to leave it in as an application.
7. It will earn you money in the long run
If you get employed because your CV stood out and were well presented, you will be earning a good wage you would not have gotten if it was not for the help of a good CV!
8. Recruitment companies will want to help you
With a good CV that is polished, recruitment companies will be eager to get your information recorded into their database and to see if they can match you with an opening from one of their clients.
9. It can be adjusted
Once you have a basic CV, you can adjust it easily to suit different jobs. You might get the help of a professional to do this, or if you are crafty with words manage to do this yourself.
10. You can register with online sites.
There are several online job markets where you can register your CV and prospective employers can browse it without you even having to look for them or send out CV’s
