This year, instead of students getting excited because they’ve achieved a host of A* GCSE results, they’ll be cheering 9’s. But what does this mean for the recruitment process?
I always think that being a boss, is a bit like being the England Manager, everyone always thinks they can do the job better than the person doing it. Being the boss can be a tough and thankless job! We’ve all had bosses who have been amazing and who we feel have shaped and moulded our careers and then there’s those who have been hopelessly over promoted and you wonder how they manage to get out of bed in a morning let alone manage a team. If you’re a boss, which category do you fall into?
I was shocked to see a recruiter advise people to use white text on their CV, stating by adding a third page which contained key words written in white text, they’d easily get through any filter. I thought the post was incredibly misguided, it’s alright telling people how to buck the system, but the fact remains that if your CV does manage to make it through, when an actual person reads it, you still won’t get the interview, let alone the job!
