One of the biggest pain points we hear from jobseekers is that they don’t know the best strategy to take when searching for a new job, they only consider going to a recruiter. As a recruitment consultancy ourselves we appreciate that’s because you are getting chased over actively messaging a recruiter yourself.

After reading this document you will be able to tackle a job search confidently and with a high degree of success.

Choice of language:

Using weak verbs in your CV is setting yourself to fail. “Assisted, “Helped”, “Worked on”, “Supported” when describing the work, you have done, using these words in a job-seeking process will almost cause doubt in the employers’ mind about your understanding.

Instead of: Worked On

Use: directed, facilitated, accelerated

Instead of: Responsible for

Use: structured, generated, chaired, influenced

Instead of: Improved

Use: modified, centralised, redesigned, streamlined
