According to Laura Smith, candidate marketing executive for Milkround, the amount of time people spend on their CV is dependent on that person, but the key is not to rush it.
"Don't just send it off for the sake of it, because you're wasting time for them and yourself. It takes time and can be arduous sometimes, but it's not meant to be easy. You're fighting for something really big," she added.
Getting experience is very important because it "brings the CV to life", Ms Smith noted, adding that people should ensure the content is relevant, engaging and the keywords are "jumping out", highlighting any skills and specialities.
Recently, Tessa Stone, chief executive at Brightside, said that two of the main things people need to remember when applying for a job is that the application must be both relevant and accurate.
People should make sure their CV is spelt correctly, well laid out and clear, while their covering letter should fit the requirements of each organisation, she explained.
