If paper your CV is hard work to read: unclear, badly laid out and containing irrelevant information, they will just move on to the next CV. Treat the selector like a child eating a meal. Chop your CV up into easily digestible morsels (bullets, short paragraphs and note form) and give it a clear logical layout, with just the relevant information to make it easy for the selector to read. If you do this, you will have a much greater chance of interview.
I do have a comment and question: Does anyone think job fairs are beginning to feel like the 3D version of the online job boards? I occasionally get emails from this one staffing agency that uses contracted therapists to fill vacancies in several states, including mine. They are legit because I’ve seen their website and it’s roughly in my field (social work), but I’m not interested in the types of jobs they need to fill. I have no idea how they got my email, although I vaguely remember one email awhile back (don’t remember if it was from this particular agency or a similar one), and it indicated that they’d gotten my info from a large job fair I’d attended at my university, even though that agency was not exhibiting. My hunch is that my resume somehow got farmed out, either by an agency that was there, or my career services center hosting the fair (though that’s unlikely).
