Recently, we assisted an individual who wanted to use his CV for a number of positions, across multiple industries. Despite having all the transferrable skills and experience required for each of the positions, to submit the one CV to hiring managers in different industries is inviting failure.


You Can’t Apply for Diverse Positions with the Same CV

Firstly – an applicant who is applying for everything looks scattered – the proverbial ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’.

Whenever you’re applying for a position, it’s best to stay on point with that industry’s requirements and minimise all the other data for other industries.

For example, if you’re going after a lab technician job, why would the hiring manager care if you’re great in the construction trade?

CVs need to be tailored and targeted for each field – preferably for each job opening.

Your CV needs to be Focused and Targeted

Your CV needs to show that you are the single best candidate for the position in a field overloaded with other equally, qualified applicants.

It needs to show your commitment to the position, the field, the employer and the industry.

You can’t do that if you’re targeting several in the same document. It needs to convey to the employer that you are interested in their opening and that you will do well at it.

Only a targeted and well-tailored CV will be able to do that. ABCV Solutions offer CV, LinkedIn Profile and Cover Letter writing services for engineers, IT and technical specialists at every career level.
