Did someone say a handwritten CV?
Crunching through CVs isn’t an easy task for an HR executive who reads through several boring 5-10 page CVs on a daily basis. However, the trend has been changing over the years, with the focus on single page CVs. The challenge now is – how do you peak the interest of your prospective recruiters for jobs in Goa, while packing in crucial information about yourself on a single page.
How do you impress the HR executive with just a single page ?
It may look like an easy job…. but it is not!
So… what’s the solution? … Send in a handwritten CV!
Once you’re done laughing through your teeth… here are some ‘advantages’ for you to bite down on.
- You get the attention of not only the HR but the entire company!
- You’re the hottest topic of discussion with all the HR’s friends!
- Even if you don’t get the Job, you’ve already built up a fan base!
- Just out of curiosity the HR will want to MEET you!
- If you’ve applied for an IT Job in Goa, the entire industry will now know about you!
If you think this is a joke. Think again, because it isn’t!!
We actually received a handwritten CV, and I being the lead recruiter for the company at the time was shocked at start, but I was extremely curious to meet the person.
After reviewing tonnes of boring CV’s filled with content ripped of the internet, this ‘handwritten’ CV felt refreshing. However, I must say that this was a stunt that was born out of pure laziness.
So we did schedule the interview, but the candidate was a no show… many dreams were shattered that day.
Nonetheless, this person actually went on to work for a huge multinational company, although he did not last there very long. He quit after a couple of months and ventured in the hospitality and food industry. He is now back in the market, looking for jobs in Goa.
This entire article was intended in a manner to highlight the unprofessionalism of the IT industry and IT job scene in Goa.
