How do you like a CV to be structured?
Not sure each CV submitted should be relevant to the Job applied for rather than a generic CV used by candidates for all jobs – which then means the skills and attributes required for the role not being included in the CV summary
What is your pet peeve – when reading a CV?
Too much information.
How can a candidate impress you during an interview?
Having the knowledge about the company, the role and able to elaborate on experience relevant to the job applied for.
