As we know, recruitment trends continue to evolve over time. In order to succeed in finding a company that suits you, it has become important to keep up to date with new trends, among them: the reverse CV!
What does it consist of?
As its name indicates, the reverse CV allows the recruiter and the candidate to reverse their roles during their exchanges. It consists of a company creating its own CV. It can be compared to the candidate’s CV, whose main objective is to highlight the company’s values, its field of activity, its team and the type of profile it is looking for.
We find company CVs in several forms: paper CVs, video CVs (increasingly common), posts on social networks… It is a new way of recruiting talent, giving all the necessary information so that the candidate targets the company’s needs.
What are its advantages?
If the reverse CV method is becoming more and more popular, it is not without reason. Indeed, it is beneficial because :
– It allows the candidate to better target the needs of the company he/she is applying to. It is a good way to better understand the field of activity and the challenges of the position.
– Nowadays, trends have reversed. Job seekers have become more and more picky about the assignments they are looking for. It is therefore also up to the company to sell itself to attract new talent, especially for positions where recruitment is difficult.
– Job offers do not always have optimal visibility. For this reason, the company CV allows you to put forward the offers to be filled. This method allows to communicate towards the candidates and not the opposite.
Thus, the reverse CV method in recruitment becomes more widespread. It has already proven itself for a large number of companies, allowing considerable time savings. As you will have understood, the company must also find an employee who corresponds to it, just like the opposite!
