Peter Panayotou, senior consultant at The Write Stuff, said that the new trend to create a video or website CV is a risky strategy, as it could put off potential employers even if the content of the resume is good.
Instead, he suggested that applicants should take time to ensure their CV is well presented and, most importantly, relevant to the job they are applying for, with appropriate work experience and skills highlighted.
"As a CV writer the only thing I would really advise people to do is to make sure that your CV is relevant, that's it's neat, well presented and that the information is accurate," the expert explained.
Mr Panayotou's comments follow the publication of data by social network site LinkedIn, which showed that the most commonly used buzzword by professionals in the UK when describing themselves is "motivated".
