The Personal Profile is one of the most important sections of your CV. It leads the recipient of your job application smoothly into the rest of your CV. We must take into account that when we apply for a live job vacancy, the Hiring Manager or Recruiter has possibly scrolled through
Keep in mind the following points:
Your Personal Profile should entice the recipient
Put yourself in the shoes of the recipient of your CV and ask yourself, would you invite you to an interview? You need to take into account the potential number of applicants that are applying for the same vacancy you are. Statistics from Glassdoor.com compiled in 2017 showed that on average there are 250 applications submitted for each vacancy. Only 2% of these 250 will be called to an interview. LinkedIn predicted after 2017 a hiring volume increase to 58% in the U.S., 67% in Mexico and 78% in India. As more opportunities are expected, more applications follow.
How do you be the shining diamond among the average 250 rocks?
How can you stand out and be noticed?
Tailor your application directly to the vacancy and the company you're applying to!
Every vacancy is different. REMEMBER THIS!
If you're applying for a position in your field of choice and you complete the full application, and then you search another position elsewhere in the same field but send the same CV and cover letter, I am 99% sure that you won't be successful in the 2nd application. No recruiter wants to read a generic application.
Some tips to keep in mind:
You need to establish your connections between what the employer needs and what skills you have.
