Learn How to Land Your Dream Job!

Did you know that it takes a recruiter just seven seconds to save or reject a job applicant’s CV – less time than it takes to cross the street or boil a kettle?  But don’t despair, this can also work to your advantage as long as you know how to make your CV stand out from the crowd.

To help provide the answers Watson Martin has invited James Reed, Chairman of REED, Britain’s biggest and best known recruitment company, to lead Watson Martin’s next Learning Bites webinar going out live on Wednesday 1 May at 12.30 GMT.


Based on his recently published book The 7-Second CV: How to Land the Interview, James Reed will reveal:

  • Exactly what employers want to see in the applications they receive.
  • The ‘Fatal Five’ key mistakes that lead to CVs heading for the reject file.
  • What recruiters focus on when shortlisting
  • What to look for in a cover letter. 

There will be valuable lessons to learn from an HR perspective too when he reinforces what we like and dislike about CVs and puts into words the intangible things that often get labelled as ‘gut feel’.

Hosting the session is Joseph Grech, a consultant at Watson Martin who specialises in digital online learning and is highly experienced in delivering CIPD qualifications at Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
