Have you ever wondered what recruiters look for? What is going to make your CV stand out amongst the crowd. How can you best represent yourself in two pages! In the external market you may only have 7 seconds of someone’s attention before they move onto the next CV, and that’s if the sifting isn’t done by a computer!
