Julian Acquari, Monster UK and Ireland’s MD, says: “In the current economic climate it is vital that people searching for jobs do not sabotage their chances and fall at the first hurdle by submitting CVs with mistakes.”

“Spelling and grammar errors or typographical errors do not convey a conscientious work ethic, and many employers only need to see one mistake to send your CV straight to the recycling bin. Your CV is a potential employer’s first introduction to you, so it’s vital that it makes a good impression.”
