Just 13% of CVs from job applicants have no errors.
Analysis of over a quarter of a million CVs found one in every twenty-five applicants had more than 20 mistakes.
Misspellings, inappropriate content and missing postal addresses were the most common errors.
Director of the HR Suite, Caroline Reidy, says some mistakes matter more than others:
" If somebody, for example, autocorrect has put in a 'z' instead of an 's' in a word like organised, that'll be overlooked most likely.
"However, in grammatical serious issues or inappropriate things being actually put in or a file name that's inappropriate, they're going to think, 'is this an indication of this person's professionalism'?"
