CVs and applications have been very much automated these days with many of the job boards accepting a CV that you can then post out for multiple applications. How can you make sure that this way of mass applying gets your CV noticed? 
 
When you register with a job board you are given the opportunity to upload your CV and then these documents can sit there for a long time - and the longer that they sit there the more out of date they become. 
 
Tip number 10 
Check which CV is on all the job boards that you use and make sure that it is the most up to date one that you have. 
 
Why? 
With the numbers of applications that we are getting for each of our roles a CV that is clearly out of date just isn't going to cut it and will end in the "no" pile. Sometimes it is really obvious, for example of someone was made redundant in 2014 and then there hasn't been any additions since then. However, in the current climate someone whose CV is clearly out of date won't be given the benefit of the doubt however relevant the information is in the last role listed. 
 
Tip: Take down all your CVs from job boards one Friday and repost them on the Monday using your most up to date one. If ever you are in doubt as to whether the boards have your most up to date details take it down and repost. 
 
If you think that your organisation would benefit from this please pass on our details and we will be happy to have a confidential no-obligation chat. You can call us on 0116 2080246 or email on outplacementsolutions@emerald-starfish.com
