What bugs recruiters?

Employers have roughly 20-60 seconds to look at your CV.  Here's how not to bug them, according to a recent survey by Reed of 300 employers.

50% said their top bugbear was poor spelling and grammar
33% said the most irritating phrase was "socialising with friends"
40% said they would disregard any CV if it had no cover letter



Employers do have some "likes" too:

91% said a 2 page Word document (I assume that includes a pdf file) is preferred for a CV
50% said that a logical order/relevance is the most important feature in a CV
82% said they're impressed if a candidate follows up their application/expresses further interest.

See the survey for more tips
