Getting your job title right is so important, it not only helps employers and recruiters find you, but it will really help you with your job search too!
Writing a CV can be daunting, it shouldn't be and here's why... Writing about yourself should be easy, let's face it, if you don't know what you have done, who will? Only you know the jobs you have had; only you know the new one you want!
Here are our three top tips for getting your job title right on your CV, what's best about it is that it is simple advice to put into play.
Gone are the days when a recruiter wants you to stand out from a crowd on your CV. I get that this might sound counter intuitive, but, it is so true!
No recruiter want's to search through thousands of CVs looking at random job titles, maybe you aren't hearing back from applications because you are being a little too smart. Don't get us wrong, there is a time and place for standing out from a crowd, but this is not that place, hold your creative flair back for your career summary or even better smashing your next interview.
1) Research your job title - Take a look on job boards to see the most used job titles in your market. This is what recruiters will be searching for!
2) Be specific - Don't add extra information, no special characters, no forward slashes, save this for your career summary
3) Keep it simple - Your job title should be the common name from what you do. If you are an 'SEO Evangelist' add 'SEO Expert' to your CV. If you are a 'Sandwich Artist' maybe you should be using 'Food Retail Assistant'
Remember that you still need to stand out from a crowd, but make yourself find-able too... now before you go and fix your CV, take a look at the other areas of our Candidate Insights section.
