What We Say

Making the right impression – and quickly – is vital for successful job applications.

The impressions part of the package

One of the most important things you need to know about CVs is that first impressions count, and if anything else your CV needs to be enticing enough to read. Surprisingly, most people, and even many professional CV companies fail to understand this. However, make no mistake, if your CV doesn’t look right as soon as the employer picks up your application from the pile, then it could go straight in the bin rather than pride of place on the shortlist.
