De-jargon your CV and increase your chances of being shortlisted for interview.
The definition of Jargon:
Special words or expressions that are used by a particular profession or group and are difficult for others to understand.
Whether you’re transitioning from a career in the forces or you’re changing industries, if your CV or skill set is difficult to understand it’s quite likely that your application will quickly be rejected.
10 signs you should, maybe, be looking for another job?
1. Your standards are slipping in your current job. You’re not bothered about missing deadlines or targets, you’ve started being late into the office or late back from lunch. You’ve started taking sick days when you know you could have made it into the office.
2. You have a bad working relationship with your boss and it’s not something you can turn around.
How to make people want to work for you
How to make people want to work for you. It’s easy to assume you can advertise a good role with a good salary and that quality candidates will be flocking to work for you. It’s not the case, our local market is buoyant and as such the power lies with the candidates who can be picky about who they work for.
How to write a CV; hobbies and interests
At the end of any good CV there's a section that should be entitled 'hobbies and interests' which should give the reader more of an insight into you and your life outside of your work.
It’s the only section on your CV where you get to talk about yourself and, career aside, the things you do, you love and you’re good at.

We received this testimonial from Paul yesterday, who is going to start his new managerial job next week. Normally we would post testimonials on our 'what they say' page but we felt his words really did highlight all that we are trying to achieve in terms of the work we do, the standards we work to and our commitment to the candidate experience - so we thought we would share more publically.
