Items include information on how to differentiate your CV. We explain that your CV is a sales brochure for you, just as a business uses a brochure to illustrate its products to clients. As a consumer, you expect the sales leaflet to be clearly laid out, rendering it easy to spot the differentiating factor that makes you want to buy the product and decide to make the purchase. The recruiter should not need to search your application for the information they need to spot that you are a great fit with the job role. You should hand it to them on a plate.
There are also articles on making job applications, what employers are looking for, how to follow up after an interview search, and salary negotiation.
