Why do over 90% of CVs get rejected?

Why do over 90% of CVs get rejected?

Here are 4 things summarized what I found after reviewed many CVs.

1. Summary: a good summary is an opening statement connect your, profile. It should answer "Why do you need to hire me?”

2. Achievements: Don't list down all their job duties, skills, etc... What are the highlights? What are the measurable results?

3. Roles & companies: These are deal-breakers for HR to shortlist your CVs which have similar roles or from good companies (your background).

4. Academic qualifications: Degrees & grades are NOT important for some roles. But a graduate from a good school will still have a better chance.

Others - most importantly the formatting! Does anyone wants to look at ugly A4 paper?!

A well-written CV & Cover letter, as well as your All-Star LinkedIn Profile, helps your personal branding!

(simply as no grammar error or careless mistakes!)
