Employers 'very keen' to see work experience

Employers are always keen to see examples of work experience on the CVs of job candidates, but it is surprising how many people omit this information from their resume, one expert has stated.

Jo Barnard, director of Quest Professional, employers have always placed an emphasis on previous work experience when looking to recruit, but it is arguably more important than ever in the current economic climate with competition for jobs so high.

She explained that, going forward, it is going to be important that people have some form of practical experience that shows they have taken responsibility on their CV, even if it is unpaid work.

"Employers do look for it, it gives them the comfort zone that somebody has been prepared to go out and find voluntary work, and find work experience. I think that shows they have been prepared to give up their time," the expert explained.

She described work experience as a "valuable tool" when assessing someone, and also for a young person to skill-sample an industry before being offered employment.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for universitiesnet.com recently said if people have taken time out after university for a gap year spent travelling or volunteering, they should not feel the pressure to brush over this period on their CV, but rather see it as an opportunity to enhance it.
