Interview and CV tips!

Are you struggling to find work and do you feel that you need help with your CV? We have devised some quick tips for you:

  • It’s a good idea to email your CV to your email account so that you can access it from wherever you are
  • Be truthful and honest. If you lie you will be very quickly found out
  • List all things with the most recent qualification/job/experience first and work your way back in time
  • Research the company you are applying for and tailor your CV to this company. Matching your skills and experiences with their brand values
  • Read the job description. Make sure you know what you are applying for and refer back to the job description in your CV / Cover Letter / Interview
  • Use similar adjectives to the job description. DO NOT just copy them from the job description as this is too obvious
  • If the opportunity easily presents itself, it may help to pepper your CV with some technical terminology – but not too much – so that the employer knows that you understand the industry
  • If you aren’t applying for a specific role, review similar job descriptions online and tailor your CV to these. This is always a good way to see what further skills/experience you may need
  • Use an email account that has a more professional tone to it. E.g. [email protected] as opposed to [email protected]
  • It is essential to tailor your CV for each role you apply for:
  • Read the job description Research the company
  • Link both points to your relevant skills and experience

REMEMBER: the goal of the CV isn’t to get you a job; it’s to get you an interview. Make it concise, interesting and enticing. Make the employer want to find out more about you.
