Get Your CV Ready to Upload Onto Hosco

by | CAREER TIPS | 0 comments

Leonardo da Vinci is credited with creating the first CV in 1482. Since then, it has become the focal point of almost every recruitment process. The hospitality industry is no exception. Whether you’re launching your career as a chef or have years of experience as a receptionist, at some point, someone, somewhere will look at your CV. If your CV includes all of your skills and most recent experience then it’s time to log in and upload it to Hosco. (See point three to find out exactly how to do it.)

If your CV isn’t ready, don’t worry. Keep reading to find out how to cover the basics and how to upload it to your Hosco profile.

1. What is a CV?

Your CV is your professional life on one (max two) pages. CV stands for curriculum vitae, a Latin expression that can loosely be translated to the course of one’s life. On average, a recruiter will look at your CV for just six seconds. It’s impossible to read an entire CV in that time. That’s why it’s crucial to immediately grab the recruiter’s attention and sell yourself.

Not only this, another golden rule for CV writing is that you need to be concise. Write about your previous experience and special skills in as few words as possible. However, make sure you spend a lot of time writing, editing, and perfecting your CV. Do this and it should do what it’s designed for: getting you an interview.

2. What Should Your CV Include?

  • Personal details and contact information
  • Profile summary that highlights your assets
  • Education and training
  • Work experience and an outline of each role
  • Skills and achievements
  • Hobbies or interests that showcase your personality
  • References

When writing your CV, tweak it so that it mirrors the specific criteria of the job you want to land. That way, when recruiters skim your application, you appear to have the right skills and cultural fit for the company.

Customizing your CV is essential. This document is supposed to keep evolving and improving to reflect your career trajectory and achievements. It’s important to modify it and keep different versions of it when you’re job hunting. The tone of voice, style, layout, and language of your CV all contribute to your chances of landing an interview.

3. How Do You Upload Your CV to Your Hosco Profile?

When you create an account on Hosco, you have the option to add your CV to your profile. You can do this at any time, however, we highly recommend that you upload your CV straightaway as it’ll boost the chances of recruiters noticing you. Don’t worry, your CV is not visible to other members, only you and recruitment companies can see it.

Although it’s best to submit a tailored CV when applying for a job, you should always keep a generic version of it on your profile. You never know when a recruiter might be searching the network for possible candidates.

To attach your CV, simply log in and click the “Upload your CV” button, located at the top of the page and above the “About Me” section. When doing this, you also have the option to supercharge your profile by using our CV Parsing feature, which extracts new information from your resume and adds it to your profile, saving you valuable time!
