Finding your first job out of university can be a gruelling experience. Putting together your CV is just the start in a process that can take weeks, months and even years to get right. Deciding which experience to exclude and which to emphasise, what material works and just how you can reach out to potential employers can leave you exasperated and unmotivated, but it doesn’t have to be. Clemmie creates a totally customisable CV from whatever material you choose to upload in the form of a unique personalised website. This website (known as an InSite) is then sent on to your prospective employer. As soon as your site is accessed, Clemmie feeds back data regarding exactly how your employers have responded to your CV. With a Clemmie InSite, you can reach out to and engage with prospective employers. Here are just a few reasons why now is the time to get a leg up on the competition with your own personalised website.
- Make a lasting impression
Posting a new job can be an almighty headache for employers. They can receive hundreds of applicants for just one role, meaning they have to sift through thousands of personal statements, references, personal statements and more. Depending on when you submit your CV, you could be significantly limiting your chances of getting a fair assessment. So why not stand out from the competition with a personalised site designed exclusively for prospective employers? With a personalised CV InSite, you can showcase your best skills and give your experience the platform it deserves whilst offering a genuine alternative to the paint-by-numbers layout of a traditional CV. The simple but effective layout of an InSite allows prospective employers to assess your application from a fresh perspective, demonstrating your originality while giving them a welcome break from the standard CV format.
- Make sure your CV reaches the right people
As soon as your CV InSite has been opened, Clemmie sends you a real-time break-down of how employers are interacting with your site. Not only does this help alleviate the stress of not knowing if your CV has even been received by the intended person, it also gives you a detailed insight into how they’re reacting. Rid yourself of applicant angst waiting by the telephone for a phone call that may never come. If nobody opens your CV, even though you know they’ve received it, the likelihood is your application would have been unsuccessful. The major advantage to the Clemmie InSite method is you save valuable time and effort on pursuing the opportunity with follow-up calls and emails.
- Truly understand employers
Knowing what an employer is looking for can be one of the most challenging aspects of a job hunt. Job listings can be deliberately vague, particularly when the person advertising the role is trying to cover as many bases as possible in the advertisement. With the intelligent analytics of a Clemmie InSite, you can gauge exactly what an employer is looking for without having to hack their emails or bug their office. After creating your own personalised site, simply mail it along to your potential employer with a cover letter and wait for the real-time data in your inbox.
- Shine a spotlight on your CV’s shortcomings
Identify where your CV needs the most improvement through Clemmie’s comprehensive analytics. Break down your CV into individual sections and qualify their appeal through real-time engagement scores. With the simple and clean analytics of Google, you can grasp exactly which sections need the most development and constantly improve your output for future applications. With the traditional CV, the only way to discover your applications weak points was a follow-up phone call or email. With Clemmie’s intelligent analytics, you can quantify your success and failures.
- Tailor your InSite with ease for each new application
Applying for your first job can be a depressing time. Being rejected, or, worse yet, ignored, can take a serious toll on your self-esteem and demotivate you to carry on the search. The amount of work that goes into customising each cover letter and CV for your applications can be equally draining, but it doesn’t have to be this way. A Clemmie InSite can be easily customised for each new opportunity. All you need to do is contact the Clemmie team with your latest job prospect and provide some basic details. Then Clemmie’s committed team of marketing experts do the rest before sending it back for your approval. With a Clemmie InSite CV, you can showcase your abilities in style to hundreds of potential employers a week, and all for just 4.99€ per InSite!
