Employers often receive hundreds of applications for their vacancies.
Whether you have the right experience, or you don’t have any, you can make your job application stand out.
We’ve compiled some tips to help you get noticed:
Some job seekers really hate the idea of a photo on their resume. Remember though, photos can make your resume more noticeable and help employers remember your application.
Include skills and responsibilities when listing your work experience. Write a couple of sentences describing what you did, how you did it or things you enjoyed.
Writing a couple of sentences outlining your interests can really help you to connect with hiring managers. Employers want to know who you are as a real person, and how you might fit into the team.
Include certifications so that employers don’t need to chase you to find out if you have a Responsible Service of Alcohol or a driver’s licence. They might have hundreds of other people saying they do have them, don’t let them pass over you just because you haven’t written it down. Alternatively, you might be the only one who does have these certifications, and you will really stand out!
Ensure you reply promptly if you are shortlisted or asked for an interview. It will show you are really interested in the role.
Create a thorough profile to stand out from other applicants. Give as much information as you can, so that employers don’t have questions that could cost you the offer of an interview.
