Chris Rea, business manager at Graduate Prospects, said that many people make the mistake of including an irrelevant CV with their job application, even though a little time spent tailoring a resume could go a long way.
His comments follow the publication of a survey by Unison, which showed that careers services for young people in England are being slashed by up to 50 per cent.
Mr Rea said that this highlights the importance of ensuring that all applications and CVs complement each other and give the best possible impression of a sales recruitment candidate.
"Advisers and experts always say that preparation is key to a successful application. You don't need to guess about this; you should have a copy of the job description and person specification in front of you when making an application," he said.
