Max Hurd and Catherine Cope, experts at OPM Recruitment, pointed out to MCV that a company can receive hundreds of CVs in a single day once they have listed a job post.
As such, people on the hunt for a new job should ensure that their CV stands out for all of the right reasons.
For one, people should list down all of their primary skills that they think will help them in their chosen career.
Work experience should be detailed, starting with the most recent first, while anything that stretches the truth or is a blatant lie should be entirely avoided.
A jobseeker's name and address and contact number also needs to be put at the top of the first page, which should be checked over thoroughly for errors. One wrong digit on a phone number or a letter missing in a postcode could cost a person a golden opportunity.
Mr Hurd and Ms Cope added: "What you have to remember is you only get one chance to make a first impression. Your CV is the only thing that you have representing you to the employer at the initial application stage."
