EXECUTIVE SEARCH & SELECTION

Does it really matter if your CV is not 100% accurate ?

So you have changed some employment dates to hide some career gaps..
You have altered the job title given at your last employer as you believe it did not reflect the seniority of your position?

It may not seem important but companies do carry out reference checks and you never know who know’s who!
A small untruth may result in you not having an interview or receiving an employment offer.
Or worse an employment offer being rescinded . Remember the trust element.

It is far easier to be honest. Indicate within your CV your reasons for employment breaks , and if it is relevant
what you did during these periods. Travel, study or re charging your batteries?

What’s in a job title? If you have a job title which you believe may not be a true reflection of your responsibilities you can indicate concisely what may be an equivalent level in another company . Or where the position sits within the current company. Try to avoid exaggeration.

If your profile is on a business website such as LinkedIn make sure it matches the CV you are forwarding to companies.
If a Company has received your CV and checks you out only to spot a discrepancy , well there won’t be any further progression.
