    Hi. I wonder how do recruiters these days shortlist CVs amongst the lot. What do you guys think must be the basic criteria?

    I found the best information to shortlist the candidates in 3 simple steps:
    The first stage is to run through all the CVs and simply exclude those who don’t meet your essential criteria list, and note this on your spreadsheet. This should immediately make the pile of CVs much more manageable.

    In stage 2 you should go through the remaining CVs and assign the candidates scores against each item in your list of essential criteria, recording the scores on your spreadsheet. This will give you an easy way to rank candidates and give you a top ten to work with. At this stage, you should also check for any inconsistencies in their CV and make sure that their presentation, spelling and grammar, and attention to detail are flawless on both their CV and covering letter (if applicable).

    In the final stage, you should start with a list of candidates who would all be able to do the fundamentals of the role. You can now go through and score them against your list of desirable criteria, which will help single out the candidates who will be able to pick things up more quickly and contribute that bit extra to your organisation.

    Hi Tressie,
    You have shared a lovely approach indeed.

    stage 1 and stage 2 are easy ones
    when it comes to stage 3, that's the most challenging one.
