CVS contain too many errors
MOST jobseekers make spelling mistakes in their CV a study suggests, having problems with words such as “professional”.
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 adding unnecessary apostrophes.
Other commonly misspelt words included liaising, said Adzuna.
Women were more likely to double-check spelling, the study indicated.
Andrew Hunter, of Adzuna, said: “A good CV should succinctly show off employment history, education and key skills, but it should also be flaw-free.”
