3 Things That Help Recruiters Narrow Down Candidates

There are certain details that every recruiter looks for when scanning CV’s. This is because they receive thousands of applications for one job and this process helps them eliminate candidates  who do not meet their clients’ requirements for the job. It is in your best interest to ensure that you include all of the below information on your CV when applying for a job:

  1. Location

Depending on the job requirements, candidates may have to work shifts or be on call. If they do not stay within a certain kilometer radius of the job location, they will not be considered for the job. This is why it is important to read the job requirements carefully before applying, and if you do not live in the specified region, do not apply.

  1. Experience

Clients will be looking for candidates according to the level of service they require. For instance, if it is a junior level position, the candidate may not be required to have as many years’ experience as they would for a senior level job.

  1. References

If you do not have contactable references, your chances of getting the job will be very slim. Recruiters do not want to spend time trying to search for companies you worked in order to locate references.
