We receive fabulous CVs from candidates however we do receive a small number of applications where we are unable to reach the jobseekers. This unfortunately can lead to a delay in contacting suitable candidates for job roles and candidates losing out on possible career opportunities. Updating your contact details on your CV is crucial to ensure that potential employers or contacts can reach you easily. Make sure to include the following information:
- Full Name: Ensure your full legal name is listed prominently at the top of your CV.
- Phone Number: Provide a current and active phone number. Double-check for any typos.
- Email Address: Use a professional email address that you check regularly.
- LinkedIn Profile (optional): If you have a LinkedIn profile, consider including the URL. Make sure your LinkedIn is up-to-date and presents a professional image.
- Physical Address (optional): This is not always necessary, but some employers may prefer having a mailing address. If you choose to include it, consider excluding specific details like house numbers for privacy.
Remember to proofread your CV after making any changes to ensure there are no errors. Additionally, consider tailoring your CV for each job application to highlight relevant skills and experiences.
Good luck with your job search!
