What value is a Curriculum Vitae (CV) or Resume?

What does this tell you?

Most of us are taught and encourage to have a formally laid out CV or Resume.  To ensure it is not to long, normally one or two pages maximum and to have it well structured.  This ends up with most candidates having similar styles and nothing that really stands out from the crowd.  The HR professionals seem to like this format as it is conservative in nature and followers their rules.  This format and request for potential candidates to supply such documents in my opinion provides very little support in the selection process for interview.

I would recommend instead of asking for their CV’s or Resume I would ask the following four questions

  1. Do you have the experience and qualifications as required for this position?
  2. Why do you want this position?
  3. Why do you want to work for us?
  4. What value will you bring to our organisation for our clients

Please supply a written reference from any family member, friend or client as to why we should employ you

This will help to identify the real candidates for interview.

    Hi Mel,

    I heard about someone in Google preparing a collage presentation of themselves to present in their interview to work there. And they got the job too!
