Our top tips!

  • Tailor your application – it is easy to get caught up in supplying your CV to numerous organisations and roles, so make sure you read the individual job specification and tailor your application to the job post’s specific requirements.
  • Do some research –  research your prospective employer and align your application with their core values, making specific references to their company and your research. This shows prospective employers that you’re willing to take time and make the effort to understand their business and exactly what they’re looking for in a prospective employee.
  • Pay attention to detail – making sure your application is neat, properly formatted and grammatically correct shows that you are a person that takes pride in their tasks; something employers will want to see in their employees’ work.
  • Make good use of your hobbies and interests – prospective employers often take great interest in the hobbies you include in your resume. This provides them with great insight into your personality and passions; something likely to reflect in your work.
  • Sell yourself – no one knows your strengths and weaknesses as well as yourself. Use this opportunity to highlight your strengths and how this will benefit your prospective employer and the role they’re offering. Again, be specific about how these strengths will impact your work and this specific job.
