Sell yourself well
You already know that the competition for jobs is fierce. Presenting yourself to the best of your ability is an essential part of job seeking.
This section contains some information and tips that might help
- Make a good first impression. You have heard this before but it has never been so true. On the phone, on a CV, in person – in fact whichever way you apply for a job you need to get it right (or as good as possible) the first time. The only way to ‘do it right’ is to prepare and plan.
- Help! Take a look at some of our advice on applications, CVs, interviews etc.
- Get ready. Don’t rush into filling in an application form or CV. Give yourself time to prepare for an interview.
- Know about the job you are applying for. Sounds obvious? You may have read the job description but do your research. Make sure that you find out about the company itself.
