Imagine being in the top results of a Google search for your beautiful new interactive digital iCV... Well this is no dream, it's the reality..
Follow our top tips for how to rank your CV in Google...
SEO Search Term
Choose a phrase that covers your job headline and location in 3 or 4 words that you wish to be searched for on Google; for example:
"Retail Finance Director Manchester"
"Fashion Sales Director Aberdeen"
So, the more specific you can be, then the more likely you are to be higher up the rankings i.e. "Director London" would be harder to rank that "Experienced Non-Executive Director London"
Update your iCV
You will enter your SEO search term into the control panel, and make sure confidentiality is switched off.
Ensure the phrase is also included in your elevator pitch - so for first example above "Professional and commercial Retail Finance Director based in Manchester with over 20 years' experience".
Use the key words from the SEO phrase throughout your iCV in the appropriate place in career history and skills / achievements.
Share to Social Media
Links and traffic from other sites to your iCV are really powerful boosts, and so please post your URL to any, and as many relevant sites as you can.
