Watch the webinar

It takes just seven seconds for an employer to save or reject a job applicant’s CV. This seven-second rule inspired James Reed’s book on how to optimise your CV to land an interview.

This webinar was the first instalment of a two-part series, in which James shares insight from his 25 years in recruitment, and two of his books:

- The 7 Second CV: How to Land the Interview
- Why You? 101 Interview Questions You’ll Never Fear Again

James presented his ideas and advice on creating a CV to impress. This was followed by a 30-minute Q&A session in which the audience put their CV questions to the expert himself and got his invaluable advice first hand.
