We’ve become accustomed to everything virtual. Socially, we’ve celebrated virtual birthdays, weddings, and happy hours. Professionally, we’ve worked as part of a virtual team, held or attended remote interviews, and met new colleagues through a screen.
The time has come; you know your business needs to hire. Between your leaders, the department that needs new team members and HR, you’ve mapped out the roles that have to be filled.

We've outlined examples of how you can structure your CV so it is easily scannable by hiring managers and recruiters alike.
