CV analysis

How effective is your CV assessment process?

While you may be pleased to receive a large number of applications for your advertised role, it can be difficult and time-consuming to sort through all the CVs effectively.

Use these points to get you started on analysing CVs, and refer back to your original specifications for guidance.

  • Key skills and achievements
  • Qualifications and education
  • Previous employment

Using social media

Don’t neglect social media in your search for a new candidate. In the right hands, LinkedIn can be used to track down ideal candidates who meet your values and required experiences. 

That’s why we invest significantly in our social media presence. We have been awarded the coveted title of LinkedIn’s Best Company Page for the last two years, and through thought leadership and strategic networking, we have gathered over 2.5 million engaged followers, increasing your chances of finding your ideal candidate.

If you would like to discuss any of these aspects of recruitment with one of our experts, just find your nearest office or download our Talent Guide for more insight.
