“If they can"t even spell how can I trust their product?”
The same goes for CVs. Imagine how many interview opportunities are lost every year by people simply spelling driving licence with an "s" instead of a "c"? It"s so easy to miss your own errors yet somehow they stick out like a sore thumb to recruiters.
But it"s about more than just spelling. It"s actually quite difficult to write about yourself. Many people don"t sell themselves enough and ramble on about their responsibilities forgetting the focus needs to be on achievements. Facts and figures stick in the minds of recruiters not waffle.
In an increasingly competitive jobs market more and more people are realising the benefit of a professionally written CV. When you think of how important a CV is in terms of getting interviews and improving career prospects perhaps it"s not surprising? An investment of a couple of hundred pounds can yield dividends in the tens of thousands from employment gained thereafter.
