Death of a 500-year
old legacy
Leonardo da Vinci created the first CV in 1482
CVs have become obsolete

Recruiters have been using CVs for hiring since ages and it continues to be the pivot around which the recruitment process hinges. CVs have been such a widely used standard, that talent acquisition leaders rarely ask if it is really working for them; are they still relevant? There are some major problems in CVs in the modern context, which are rendering them obsolete.

CVs cannot differentiate between applicants
CVs are biased towards active jobseekers
CVs cannot be trusted
CVs cannot predict performance
