How to apply for the RIGHT roles for you…

1.       Read the job description

Read the job description in detail, from start to end. Are the location and salary right for you? Is it a contract or permanent role? Many candidates we deal with will apply for contract positions when they are only looking for permanent roles, simply because they haven’t read the job description in full.

2.       Do you have the right skills and experience?

Always check that your skills and experience exactly matches those detailed on the job description. When a skill or experience is listed as ‘essential’ on a job description, it means it’s essential!

If your CV does not mention the essential skills and experience listed in the job description, you are not suitable so do not apply. If you do apply, this could tarnish any future job applications to the company.

3.       Tailor your CV and cover letter

Highlight the skills and experience mentioned on the job description on your CV.

4.       Chase up your application and get feedback
