We know that finding a new job can be daunting; whether you’re fresh out of university, re-training or have been made redundant in the past. We’ve put together our top 6 tips to help you ace your next interview and get a job you love.
1. Revamp your CV
Tailoring your CV to jobs you’re applying for is very important. Each job will have standout skills they’re looking for and require slightly different things. Highlight your key skills and make sure your introduction is punchy and memorable.
We can help create the best CV for you. Contact us to find out more.
2. Tailor your Cover Letter
Creating a generic cover letter and sending it out to multiple companies and job applications will most likely get you nowhere. Find out everything you can about the role, the company you’re applying to and tell them how you’d be a good company fit. Not only will this show them that you know what you’re talking about, but it’ll also show them you’re willing to put in the work.
