The Capital city of Scotland is one of the most dynamic, exciting and interesting markets in all of the world, let alone the UK. Fast paced, unforgiving and here today, gone tomorrow. The pace of life and the sheer competitiveness of the job market means that you have less time than usual to impress an employer as they have so little time in general.
Remember that the single purpose of the CV is to get you interviewed. The first impression that a recruiter has towards your CV is vital. If your CV is not making an impression in less than 2 seconds, truth is that the CV is destined for the bin or the delete button.
The job market in Edinburgh also pays better than many place in the UK (with the exception of London) and so people look for better value for money from their employees. Employers in Edinburgh are not fools (neither are the people of Edinburgh ) and they know that a great employee can and often is the difference between business success and failure.
Remember that you are solving a problem- be the ideal employee, show an employer what you can deliver for them and they will reward you for it.
How Do I Impress Edinburgh Bosses?
The simplest way to impress an employer is to show them what you have delivered for employers in the past. Demonstrate your value by highlighting on the CV exactly what you have achieved for previous employers, possibly by creating a Key Achievements section at the very top of the CV to Wow the employer at first glance.
