Win £200 just by updating your CV!

BlogPic1As recruiters, you all know the importance of an updated CV to employers. So why let yours fall out of date?

Given that your CV is the one and only chance you’ll get to give a great first impression to employers on the other end of the recruitment vortex, it’s surprising how many people let theirs gather dust in an unloved job hunting profile.

It’s so much easier for employers to choose applicants based on their abilities and experience if their details are up-to-date. In our review, we found that a huge percentage of jobseekers on Careers In Recruitment hadn’t uploaded a new CV in more than six months.

To give you a little nudge in the right direction, we’re offering you the chance to win £200 in high street vouchers just for updating or uploading your CV. Perfect for buying a brand new interview outfit with!

We asked fashion blogger Laura Andersonwho writes for La Redoute and her own blog A Forté For Fashion to find some perfect interview outfits you could buy with your winnings. Here’s what she dreamed up:


mens interview outfit

Laura says: “Get your hands on a smart suit, it comes in handy in so many situations. Wear a bit of colour to make you stand out a little bit extra. Ties aren’t always necessary so don’t feel you have to wear one!”


womens interview outfit

Laura says: “You can still express your personality at a job interview. Tuck this shirt into your skirt – the ice blue on the shirt it continued throughout the outfit.  Don’t be afraid of colour! Interviews aren’t all about black.Just add some tights to this outfit and you’re good to go.”

Hopefully this has given you some inspiration to get your CV freshened up. To enter the competition just upload your CV here:
