May 2, 2010 - PRLog -- With news that online recruitment levels have reached the highest levels in two years, and this month’s growth highest in the media and marketing sector, the findings of Meet The Real Me’s latest survey are cast in an interesting light.

The survey has revealed that public confidence in the power of the traditional paper CV is low. The results indicated that more than 80% of Britons believe employers do not take the time to read through every written CV they receive for a job application.

The survey, which asked 4,000 respondents their view on traditional recruitment policy, also found that more than 85% of us doubt employers read through all of the information presented in a written CV when processing responses to job applications.

Further limitations of the written CV were also revealed, with over half of respondents recognising the format’s ineffectiveness in showcasing candidates’ true personality and real qualities; attributes which 86% of respondents agreed were more important than educational qualifications in certain occupations.

News of the precarious position of the paper CV alone comes at a time when jobseekers are fighting to be noticed in an increasingly competitive job market, and reveals a real concern for those wishing to truly stand out from the crowd and secure that perfect role. It seems that the digital world is leading the way in the recruitment sector, and with confidence in the paper CV low, video is increasingly being recognised as the CV of the future.
