If you are a jobseeker, whether out of work and immediately available or just thinking that it’s time for a change, there is one trap that a lot of people can fall into. Applying for jobs that are NOT suitable for you! Perhaps it’s late on a Friday night and, after a few drinks (over Zoom) with your friends, you decide that now is a good time to start searching for your next role.
But there’s a couple of problems… Either you are full of self confidence and feel that you can do anything or, you are full of self doubt and can’t do anything! Or, perhaps you know you can do the job but it’s in the Outer Hebrides and you live in Southampton with your wife and children… but you still click that apply button anyway. We’ve all been there!
The job market is incredibly competitive so a quality CV is a critical tool in getting you in the door for an interview. To help build the best CV, we have prepared a guide with a number of elements that will make you stick out from the crowd (for good reasons!), with rationale on why these methods work.
We have also created a model CV template which we will happily send to you as a Word document if you register with us! You can use our template or incorporate some of our CV tips into your current CV.
So you’ve searched for a role and found one that suits. You’ve tailored your CV, sent your application and now you’ve been invited to an interview… eeeeek!! Maybe it’s been years since your last one, or maybe you’ve had a few recently but have been unsuccessful until now. How should you prepare? What should you wear? What questions do you ask when they ask you if you have any questions for them?
