Making sure you have ticked all of the boxes when applying for a role, and sprucing up a CV with a relevant cover letter before application.
Everyone has been guilty of under or overusing bullet points and getting the balance right can be the difference between engaging the hiring manager in your accomplishments or having your CV swiftly left to one side. Remember, it’s your CV and you need to be comfortable with it and should ignore any advice you don't like.
You have your name staring back at you, your address, your email address and your telephone number (will address why this shouldn't be here in a later article). What goes next?
Whether you are looking for your first job or looking to change the one you are in, you always want to maximise your options, and applying for as many jobs as possible is the way a lot of people tend to go about that. Logically, the more jobs you apply to the greater your chances are of getting hired but, is this a flawed approach?
It is important for any person to have a full comprehension of what our individual strengths and weaknesses are, as a person. Now of course, it’s easy to identify somethings with hindsight, or with helpful and constructive feedback from others, but what is far more difficult is trying to identify your strengths and weaknesses yourself.
