How Much Does A CV Really Tell You?

21st September, 2018 · Tips & Advice


When it comes to finding the perfect fit for your business, there is only so much you can learn from a CV.

Through extensive research and feedback from our client partners, we have identified the following problems which can occur when basing your interview selections solely on the contents of a CV:

  • Candidates often look good on paper but do not fit into the company culture when they arrive at interview.
  • Despite having the experience and education required for the position, candidates can lack certain key competencies.
  • While the candidate may appear to have the perfect skillset, they can lack certain behavioural traits which are essential for the role.
  • Candidates may not look good on paper and may not be invited to interview but actually turn out to be the strongest candidate for the position.

Knowing these issues, our in-house team provides a market-leading Search & Selection vetting process followed by the use of video introductions, pre-arranged competency question answers and built-in behavioural assessments.

We take the guess work out of inviting candidates to interview.

The best news? This all comes in one easy to use, mobile-responsive platform that can be accessed in real-time globally as part of The Advocate Group’s value-added recruitment process.
