You’re certainly not alone in your scramble to get a CV together in a hurry to compete in a tough jobs-market. In these austere times employers have become tight and lazy.
Why should they go to all the hassle of sending out application forms, paying for someone to fold the paper and shelling out on envelopes, printer-ink, paper and stamps?

This is where the economic downturn has hammered job-hunters: not only are they facing a the squeeze as openings with companies fall but also companies are less likely to put as much money into recruitment. Here at JobFox UK we call this The Big Squeeze.
Employers don’t have rivers of cash to put into selection and this makes things tighter for the job-hunter.
