The CV is dead. Long live the CV.

In this day and age employers do not always have the time or inclination to sift through a mountain of job applications. Every candidate will have a selection of the following traits – proactive, good team player, (but equally good working independently), seeking new challenges, a love of reading and travel. I think you know what I mean…..

Could the solution be a personal Infographic? Eye catching images that instantly convey meaning and illustrate in seconds the experience and skill set of the candidate.

  1. Absolutely love the CV Jon! As someone who has spent a lot of time recruiting teachers this type of layout would make things a whole lot easier. Plus candidates have nowhere to hide to fill up their CVs with cliches and waffle.

    I do think there should be room for qualifications though as this is something that is crucial to employment in many jobs including EFL.
