A recruiter gives me a call on the same day as I send out a new version of my CV. So I try to ascertain which version of my CV he has. Not easy and I have to make an educated guess.
I think it is inevitable that people will have many copies of their CV out int he world on Job boards, recruiter and company websites etc. As well as tailored CVs for some vacancies.
My solution is to give every CV I send out a unique file name and include a simple name in the CV Footer for easy reference. Has anyone ever had this problem, tried this approach out and found it useful or come up with a better idea?
