Why is LinkedIn important when looking for a job? LinkedIn is the go to portal for professional networking, and yet so many people I talk to still don’t have a profile, or started a profile that they began some years ago and have never looked at it again. Yet with the membership of LinkedIn being over 465 million + worldwide,...

Is the CV dead?

0
Your CV is your marketing document to get the interview for the role that you are applying for. There is no one “correct” format, and most people will have their own preferred way to put one together. But with the digital age upon us, is the CV dying? Not yet!

I was recently reading an article about networking and how technical skills and knowledge accounts for 15% of the reason for getting, keeping and advancing in a job, and 85% of success is about people skills! A big number I know, and yet a similar statistic is continually repeated in different ways – 20% jobs are found through traditional...
