Would you like to secure work in 2021? After a turbulent year in 2020, many people have lost their jobs and so will be seeking work this year. If that is your case, I would like put forward a few suggestions that you make like to consider.
This guide is by no means comprehensive. It’s more of a brief set of approaches that you could take to secure that job you want sooner and without delay.
Remember, stay positive and focused when applying for work. Don’t rush your job applications.
It can be easy to rush your job application. We do this because we get emotional about the job we’re applying for. Perhaps we are absolutely unhappy where we work and we really want to get out of our job.
Because our feelings are so strong, we tend to get caught up in preparing a job application for a new role. We may rush our cover letter and so there are numerous typos.
We may rush our CV which may not be tailored as best it should. The end result is an ill-prepared job application that get’s disregarded by an employer because if failed to impress them. That’s the last thing you want to happen.
Make sure that your cover letter is tailored to the role and outlines your relevant skills and experience.
Your cover letter is usually the first document that a prospective employer will read. They’ll look at your CV too, but the cover letter is important. If done right, your cover letter should be tailored to the specific role and outline why you want to work for their company.
Don’t make the cover letter too long. And don’t make it too sure. If you need help preparing a few professional cover letters, get in touch with the employment services team at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions. This Australian-based business specialise in writing professional CVs and cover letters designed to market and promote a candidate’s skills and experience.
Keep a collection of a few different versions of your CV.
There may be a few different roles in different industries that you can do. When having one CV does not fit all the roles, it makes sense to have one CV for one type of industry and another CV for another different industry. This allows you to open up the doors to different options that you can apply for. The most important thing you want to do, is secure an interview, and get as many interviews at that! And if you require interview coaching, there are many services available who provide interview skills coaching.
Make sure that you address the key selection criteria if that is requested.
If a job advertisement lists a set of key selection criteria to be addressed as part of your application, don’t ignore it. The employer has specifically used key selection criteria to sift through the candidates more quicker and easier. If you can do the job, then the employer wants to read about your experience and skills according to their specific requirements.
If you would like a professional to address the key selection criteria for you, get in touch with the team at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions.
