Whilst it is really important to not only post your CV onto a wide scope of job boards and also apply for a high number of advertised jobs. Job seekers must also consider how a job board works and more importantly, how a recruiter uses a job board.

To some this may seem obvious but consider that when a recruiter searches a CV database they use key words that might include the following:

Skill/qualification: CIMA, ACCA or Prince2 for example
Key word: "trading", "banking", "FX" or "marketing" for example
Key phrase: "Money markets" or "Oxford University" for example

The above are just some quick examples of the types of entries recruiters might use to search for an appropriate CV on a database.

We advice that when writing your CV make sure the content is mainly key word rich for your area of expertise. You may also want to include key words based on the area you are trying to enter, however do be careful of this as too much will result in miss matched CVs and recruiters will not appreciate this!

Hey Robin

Thanks for the "good advice" complement! I don't claim to be an expert but will always attempt to give help where it is needed. I am however a job board owner and didn't realise (until launching www.financialjobsinlondon.com) the advantage a job seeker could gain by knowing how job boards work!

Anyway, have a great Christmas and an even better 2009!

Myles

No problems.

I know of at least one poster on the forums here that is new to job boards completely. I think the more information the better since it doesn't hurt people that are familiar and can only assist people that are not.

The same to you with the Christmas wishes.

Have a great one  Grin.

Boxing day, working on SEO for Financial Jobs in London. That is a bit sad but a necessary evil I think!

So what is your area of recruitment etc?

Hey Myles.

I don't really have a specific area. My job is web services manager here at HireScores.com. I'm quite new to it (since Nov 1st) so am learning about all aspects of the recruitment and employment world as I go along.

I can't say it isn't fascinating.

Do you work from home or were you at the office on Boxing Day?

We do have an office in Milton Keynes but I was working from home over the "Festive Period".......

Recruitment is an interesting area and online recruitment even more so! From the outside, setting up and running an online job board looks straight forward but it really isn't!

Anyway hope your enjoying the break....

Best wishes

Myles

Hi! Thanks for the tip. Due to the arising unemployment in our country, winning a job is a tough competition. It is hard to attract recruiters and employers to like you and choose among the hundreds applicants. It's nice to know this tip, I think you are right because most of the time, recruiters cannot read all those CVs that are stored in the database but are just typing/looking for keywords.
