The RTA Blog - News, views, opinions, stories, help & advice


Just one spelling mistake and your CV finds the bin!


We came across this interesting infographic recently, courtesy of behiring &, that ‘revealed’ some of the secrets of recruiters. We have covered a lot of these mistakes in previous blogs, (here, here and here) so we won’t be going back over them, but we felt it was worth stressing the research that backs up some of our advice!

Following a few comments on Twitter, we wanted to clear up the infographic below. The information is taken from a study completed by behiring & At RTA we do not judge applications based on your CV alone and we actively encourage you to attach a picture to your application. One spelling mistake or a silly email address will not be the reason your application does not move forward, but it won’t help!
