I’ve worked with people on putting together CV’s for a long time and one of the things I always tell them is that they need to pass the 10 second CV Check! They need to grab attention.
Think of the first page of your CV like the trailer for a film, if you think it looks boring, you wont go and see it! If your CV doesn’t grab the attention of a potential employer in the first 10 seconds, then you’ll find yourself on the “no” pile, even though if they’d stuck with your CV until page 2, they’d definitely have wanted to offer you an interview.
Grabbing a potential employer’s attention shouldn’t be done by using fancy fonts, outlandish photos or some kind of gimmick, it needs to be done by making sure your application sells you from the very beginning!
Putting together a CV or an application can be a time-consuming nightmare and very often, people will stick with the same CV for every job they’re applying for and hope it works.
Dalmatian Be Spotted works in a very different way. Applying for a job via our job board, ensures that you are judged purely on your skillset and experience. Plus, you get to choose the things that are most relevant to the job you’re applying for. All of this can be done with a click of a button, whether you’re at home on your laptop, on a train on your phone or sunbathing outside using your tablet.
You can be in control of your career every step of the way, because when you apply for a job via Dalmatian, you are completely anonymous, a potential employer will only see things that are relevant to the job you are applying for. They won’t have access to any details that might cause them to discriminate against you, only once you have agreed to an interview will your name be revealed.
Alternatively, you can use your Dalmatian profile to create a CV, again you will be in total control over what goes on it. You can easily tailor-make an application according to the type of job you’re applying for, making sure that you really sell yourself and pass the 10 second check!
Once you’ve decided what you want to go on your CV, you will have a choice of formats to pick from and then your CV will be generated, all properly formatted.
Dalmatian is free and easy to use and takes the hassle out of applying for a job and creating a CV. It is also completely private and you have total control over your data.
