Half a minute: That’s all the time your CV will be given.
Published: 12 Jan 2015
Picture the time pressed recruiter or employer with a desk piled high with CVs. All that time and effort you have put into crafting a CV will be given on average less than 30 seconds to convince the reader to call you to interview. There is simply no point in including lots of detail in a CV. You have to sell your career story in as concise and powerful a fashion as possible.
For the vast majority of job seekers a two page is more than sufficient. You need to focus on your most recent work history. Think about it: it would not be fair at interview to be asked about detailed projects you worked on over 10 years ago – so why include them in your CV? Demonstrate concrete achievements from your most recent employments.
