According to Denise Taylor, career coach and author at Amazing People, if the job description lists even essential criteria for the job, a CV needs to match up and the applicant should illustrate how they match up.
"If you don't match almost 90 per cent you're probably wasting time and effort because it takes hours and hours to put in a proper application. Make sure you fully address and target the right job," she added.
Ms Taylor noted that another important aspect of the application process is building relationships and ensuring that prospective employers get to know the person, not simply some words on a page.
Recently, Zena Everett, founder of Second Careers, said that proper formatting and correct spelling and grammar are the key components of a good CV, and all job candidates should strive to ensure these elements are covered when applying for a role.
