Your covering letter & CV
- Supply a cover email or letter. This is a good ice breaker, best practice is to ensure it is not a generic one, but tailored for the job you are applying for
- Make sure your CV is up to date and accurate, including your most current employment
- Make sure your CV has your contact details on it
- Be honest and don’t exaggerate on your CV as you may be asked about the details
- Check spelling and grammar on your CV and/or covering note
- Ask for feedback on your application
How to prepare for an interview
- Arrive promptly for your appointment – prepare your route beforehand, or test your connection and log on to meeting on time if it is remote
- Research the organisation – check out the company’s website
- Look through the job description and think of things that make you suitable for the role – make sure you highlight these
- Prepare yourself for the questions you might be asked – remember you want to give a good impression so be as natural as you can, if you are not genuine you’ll end up in the wrong job!
- Don’t be worried about saying “I don’t know,” or “can I come back to that question”
- Prepare some questions to ask the interviewee – even if it is only to know when a decision is likely to be made
