People who know me well, will know that I detest infographics – well, I detest what infographics have turned into, i.e. largely to much information stacked into a small presentation space, thus confusing the content even moreso.
However, this is a good one that I saw circulated today. Cannot argue with the content of this. It’s a clear infograhic with a few striking facts about the recruitment process and your CV into the equation. The numbers are not the eye-catcher. Numbers in these things are often over-exaggerated and interpreted with weighting, to help present a case on behalf of a brand (in this case, Monster, it would seem?) – but the content is. Casting the numbers aside, the points are valid. Your CV is in danger of doing damage to your applications, if you don’t get the basics right.
I’m going to be poisting again this week on the `CV is Dead` argument. It’s not, but if you don’t give sufficient attention to it, yours will.
Have a read, and I welcome thoughts and observations on it:
