Recruiters never see 75% of all CVs due to Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS.) This means they are never even seen by a human The ATS scans, classifies, and ranks the CVs. It read the keywords and then rejects the “least-qualified” applicants based on format, content/keywords. The job description will have keywords that the ATS will be looking for. If the CV does not match with the job description the ATS will just reject the CV.
This statistic shows how vital it is to use a professional CV writer to structure and write your curriculum vitae. A professional CV Writer is adept in making sure your document not only showcases your professional self, but also that it is ATS compatible. We have also learnt that the ATS prefers a word document to a PDF
There can be over 250 applicants for each job advertised. Only 4 – 6 applicants will be called in for an interview. and obviously only one applicant will get the job.
Because only a small amount of people who apply for a job are actually called in for an interview we always advise you to apply for lots of jobs. It is important to cast your nets wide as you do not know how good these other candidates may be. However the jobs must be a good fit and you can of course control the quality of your own CV and application.
