Charlie Ryan, owner of therecruitmentqueen.com, said that graduates in particular are often under the misapprehension that they are not qualified to fill certain positions.
The reality is that they have many of the traits the employer is looking for, and that they simply need to demonstrate these by alluding to their own experiences.
She elaborated: "They have worked to deadlines under pressure [and] especially in a lot of the part-time opportunities that they have done, they have been dealing with people - so their interpersonal skills will have been developed."
Ms Ryan added that many people are also failing to break down their CVs in line with competencies, which is a wise strategy for anyone who feels their skillset may not be as broad as the employer requires.
Meanwhile, the Successful CV Company recently advised that anybody moving from the public sector to the private sphere needs to ensure that their CV is succinct and attention-grabbing to maximise their chances of employment.
