Is it time to refresh your CV?

When was the last time you spent a little time to refresh your CV? Last month? Last year? Ten years ago?!

With changing trends and fashions, come challenges for all of us – large and small! Not only must businesses make sure they keep up to date with the latest marketing techniques. As individuals, we too must change and adapt to the world around us. Keep up or be left behind!

Some recruitment and career commentators have suggested that it won’t be long before the traditional CV is obsolete. Replaced by LinkedIn (and others), your job history and references will soon be a living digital record. Until then, however, we should make the most of the traditional CV format until it is gone forever.

Here are a few way you can refresh your CV:

  • Demonstrate your individuality! Show what you have achieved individually which may set you apart from anyone else.
  • Don’t over complicate it! Simple fonts and layouts are the way forward here. As much as you like those more exotic fonts, they are probably best left off your CV.
  • Spell check, grammar check, fact check! Make sure everything on your CV is accurate and presented without spelling and grammatical errors.
  • Have a plan! Decide on how you are going to organise your CV and keep to it. Having a structure ensures you keep everything you need on your CV and everything unnecessary off it.
  • Keep it updated! None of the first four points will count for anything if your latest employment and achievements aren’t listed. Have an up to date CV ready to go, just in case that perfect role comes along.

Following these five steps religiously will help you prepare for any career eventuality.

Vet looking at an xray - Liberty Vets Recruitment

Why should you choose Liberty Vets for your next hire?

If you are looking to make a hire, here are some reasons why Liberty Vets Recruitment are the agency you should choose:

Firstly, Liberty Vets Recruitment offers a truly professional approach towards recruitment and has extensive experience within the veterinary recruitment industry.

We are able to take the time that is needed to properly understand exactly what it is that you’re looking for – if this means us travelling to visit the practice, so we can gain a real feel for the working environment… we are more than happy to do this.

We firmly believe that if we listen properly the first time, then we will only send you candidates that we know will tick all the boxes and means you will save time having to work your way through piles of applications that don’t match your criteria.

Here at Liberty Vets Recruitment we pride ourselves on providing quality candidates, rather than just sending you every CV that lands on our desk. It is for that reason that we heavily screen our candidates before we send their CV to a potential employer.

Each candidate that we seek employment for will have gone through the following checks:

  • Right to work in the UK (Up to date Passport)
  • Visa / Work Permit (if required)
  • Current Curriculum Vitae
  • X2 Recent References
  • Skills Competency List
  • If there are still questions unanswered and for our peace of mind, we are in contact with a local veterinary surgeon, who acts as an advisor for us. We can make contact and ask him to call any candidate to discuss any queries we may have.

It is through all of these checks that we are confident and fully committed to any candidate that we submit to a client.

Taking all of the above into account, why wouldn’t you choose Liberty Vets Recruitment?
