Get that job!

The right experience and qualifications doesn’t automatically guarantee you get your ideal job. You need to sell yourself in the best possible way and this initially takes the form of a covering letter and your curriculum vitae (CV).

Follow these simple steps to success:

  • Include all your relevant experience on your CV. This may be previous employment, voluntary work or hobbies and interests.
  • Check your spelling and punctuation. One mistake could mean the difference between two candidates.
  • Don’t include “waffle” – keep it simple and straight to the point.
  • Make sure your CV is easy to read and information is easily accessible.
  • Research the company or yard that you are applying to.
  • Have a list of questions prepared for the interview.
  • Think carefully about how to convince the interviewer that you are the best person for the job.
