Find your dream job in 2020!

The decorations are down, the last of the Christmas chocolates are gone, and everyone is back to work as we roll into a new decade. If you’re looking to make a big change and shake up the start of your new year then look no further, our consultants can help you find your dream job!

Nail your CV!

The first step to securing your dream job is straightening out your CV! It’s the first impression you get to make with your future employer, so it’s important it leaves a lasting impression.

It’s vital you update your CV before applying for any jobs as an outdated CV can come across as lazy and will leave a poor impression on the employer. Before rushing head first in to your job search, take the time to add any new qualifications, skills and awards to your CV.

A CV should be easy to read and clearly laid out. Don’t expect the hiring manager to take time deciphering yours, they’ll have a stack of applications all vying for their time.

Lastly, every job has a different set of requirements, so tailor your CV to each role by removing irrelevant information for each position you apply for. You want to make it as easy as possible for the employer to find the info they’re looking for!

Firstly, don’t forget to bring vital documents you need in the interview, like your CV, ID, and portfolio. If you’re not sure what to bring, don’t hesitate to ask. Just make sure you get in touch a few days in advance of your interview.

The last thing you want to do is arrive late, so plan your route ahead of time, and check to ensure you’ve got the key details for the interview, such as time, location and date.
Again, if you don’t have all of the details, just ask beforehand.

Confidence is key, start with a firm handshake, sit up straight, and maintain eye contact throughout the interview. Also try to keep your answers relevant and to the point. We recommend taking some time to practise answering common interview questions with friends or family, it can really help boost your confidence on the day.
