CV Review From A CEO’s Perspective

It’s no secret that the job market is overwhelmed with candidates, and recruiters are spending less time looking at applications. In February and March 2021, I was recruiting for entry-level roles at Tarpo. The results were startling, with only 6% of applicants making it to the shortlist.

What Does this Mean for you?

If this is your first time seeing me, Hi, I’m Asim! I’ve been recruiting for over 12 years for roles across all levels of various organisations – from sole proprietors to medium-sized manufacturing businesses, from maintenance and engineering to project management and accounting. I’ve literally seen thousands of applications and it is very much like looking for a needle in a haystack for recruiters.

As a leader in my industry, I often fill out business impact surveys where we get asked about our greatest challenges as business leaders. For 8 years now I have continuously said finding talent is our biggest challenge. I want to believe the talent is out there but it doesn’t know how to get found.

So that’s why I’ve decided to offer this CV review service. I love helping people uncover what they are good at and guiding them so they can always show up as their best selves, even on their CV. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned practitioner in your field, we can all use some help getting ahead. I’ll help you do this by providing you with valuable feedback to help you land the job of your dreams.

Why You need a CV Review:

. With Asim’s support, I got objective guidance on how to showcase my biggest strengths in a way that will help me stand out from my peers, who most often than not, would have the same level of experience as me.

Overall, our exercise helped me reflect on how I can showcase my strengths better and get to the point a lot faster because recruitment exercises can be quite tedious. I would definitely recommend his services any day!
