Mis­takes lit­ter CVS

South Wales Evening Post - - NATIONAL -

MOST job­seek­ers make spell­ing mis­takes in their CV, hav­ing prob­lems with words such as “ex­pe­ri­ence” and “pro­fes­sional”, a study sug­gests.

Re­search by jobs site Adzuna in­di­cated that nine out of 10 CVS con­tain spell­ing er­rors or ty­pos.

An anal­y­sis of 20,000 CVS re­cently sub­mit­ted to Adzuna found that al­most two out of three had five or more er­rors, such as un­nec­es­sary apos­tro­phes.

Other com­monly mis­spelt words in­cluded “li­ais­ing” and “re­spon­si­bil­i­ties”, said Adzuna.
