HR managers and recruiters are the gatekeepers in the job application process. Your CV will determine if they shortlist you.
Clive Lowe, OA Career Consultant, regularly attends career events for veterans, where HR managers and recruiters discuss what they look for in a CV. He shared these insights in a recent webinar with Ashka Raval, OA Recruitment Consultant. In a previous recruitment role, Ashka reviewed hundreds of CVs every day for jobs at different levels across a wide range of industries.
