One of the most important things for any jobseeker is to get their CV right.
You could be the best candidate out there, but if you don’t get the paperwork right, you might not even get the interview.
Here are her top tips:
1. Start with attitude. The attitudes, beliefs, and energy you can bring to a new role are more important than your resume and pitch. Build up your confidence before you apply – this is what will determine success. “You behave how you believe.”
2. Write marketing, not history. No one’s interested in your autobiography. Just as in marketing, you’re trying to influence a buying decision. Show your future employer that you are what they’re looking for.
3. It’s not all about you. Don’t emphasise what you want. Employers don’t care. They want to know how you can serve them.
4. Don’t rely on job sites. Hiring managers are flooded with resumes from such sites. Instead, spend time networkıng and building up connections.
5. Always follow up. In a flood of resumes, it’s easy for yours to get overlooked. Don’t be afraid of being too aggressive in your job search. Fortune favours the bold.
