Job candidates 'should not erase their personality'

Sales recruitment candidates should not erase all traces of their personality from their CV, one expert has advised, as this can prevent them from standing out from the crowd.

According to Neil Taylor, language expert at The Writer, there are many recurring problems in CVs – mainly silly and avoidable spelling and grammar mistakes, and these need to be addressed before anything else.

However, in people's effort to make their CV as professional as possible, they do not want to make it too generic, and need to remember to highlight aspects of their personality which could be utilised by their potential employer, Mr Taylor noted.

"Dodgy spelling can make you look unprofessional - or at the very least, that your attention to detail isn't what it could be. But accurate writing alone doesn't make people warm to you, or be persuaded by you, or interested in you," the expert explained.

His comments followed those made by online entrepreneur Charles Duncombe, who this week noted that poor spelling is costing UK businesses millions of pounds in revenue as customers are put off websites and potentially useful job candidates are rejected.
