Your CV is great, but the format is unreadable for the internet’s algorithm

You may feel that you are repeating yourself, but look at it like this; your CV will be valuable to the employer, but in order for the right employer to find your CV in the first place, you have to let the internet ‘read’ your information first.
‘Why did no one tell me this earlier?!’, I hear you cry. It’s a mystery why not everyone uses the internet to their full advantage when the tools are readily available!
But it’s not too late; now that you know, there are some quick and easy steps to achieving the perfect, keyword-optimized profile (click here for a full guide!).
