Eligo Christmas Countdown Day 2DAY 2 ๐ŸŽโœจ Marketing Executive, Chloe Pearsonย

DAY 3 ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„ Medical Recruitment Consultant, Atif Ahmad

Christmas Countdown Day 5DAY 5ย ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…ย Account Executive, Katie Parkerย 

“Get your CV ready and in front of hiring managers before the January rush! Make sure your CV is relevant and tailored for the role youโ€™re applying for, with a good structure and grammar. Recruiters will look for a high frequency of keywords from the job description throughout your CV, so ensure these are included multiple times in your CV to stand out from the crowd! I would recommend a structure of Personal Summary > Key Technical Skills > Work Experience > Education and Certifications. We donโ€™t need to know personal details such as your marital status, DOB or ethnicity, and you also donโ€™t need to include a picture or references.”
