Your CV opens the door to an interview
Employers often use Applicant Management Software (AMS) to score applicants in the first round of selection. If they’re scanning your CV, then it‘s critical you present data their system will look for. And, by using the correct keywords and phrases to describe your qualifications, skills, and experience, you’ll trigger positive scoring which increases your chance of being shortlisted.
Now we don’t especially like this AI style of recruitment, but we recognise it’s sometimes a necessity for large employers. So, when you create an account with 2to3days and upload your CV, we’ll organise it into fields that are structured to be easily searchable by AMS systems.
We also provide expert advice on how to create the perfect CV to showcase your achievements, successes, and accomplishments in a professional and engaging manner so you can stand out as a candidate uniquely fitted to the role.
