Tips from Swivel: Recruitment Software – 3 Things to Remember

  1. PDF! Even the best CVs submitted in .docx don’t make it through the recruitment software. Make sure your students remember that PDF is the only format they can submit their CVs in.
  2. PHOTO? Many first-timers make this mistake over and over again. In New Zealand, in 99% of the cases, a photo is not necessary for a CV.
  3. KEYWORDS! Robots are not as bright as we think they are. We recommend that all students check the keywords they need to add to their CVs before writing them. There are resources like Career Enlightenment that can help you with keyword searches based on the job description.
