As a recruiter, I look through hundreds of resumes each week. I cannot stress how crucial it is to have a well formed CV as that is my first impression of the applicant and it only takes a few seconds to determine whether the person will be right or not.

I've seen it all, big photographs of applicants that covers the whole front page of their CV, religious views, details of children including names and age, interests that probably no one should know about, height, weight, and many more. You can imagine that with the amount of people recruiters have to talk to each day, we really value our time. So if this was you, would you bother contacting a person who had the above in their resume?

The below article carefully outlines what not to do so if you have been a victim of a bad CV, take note!
