Finally, proofread your CV. You don’t want a few grammatical errors standing between you and your dream job.
Don’t forget to include contactable references of your previous employers (people you reported to)
Put in as many duties as possible and always remember, your CV is meant for selling yourself as best possible so don’t sell yourself short by excluding duties you may think are irrelevant.
Include reasons for leaving past employment.
Always start with your current employment; include months and years you started. When relating to past employment experience, include the employment end.
Ensure you have the following details listed in your cv details such as your residential area, ID number, marital status, drivers and contact details. This helps the interview process to move smoother and quicker.
Send your cv through in a word format along with documents such as – Payslips, educational transcripts, identification document, and if applicable, drivers licence.
SHOW WHAT YOU KNOW- Doing research on the company you are going to interview with is essential. You’ve done your research, so don’t forget to show it off. Work a few key facts about the company into your answers in a natural way.
PROJECT POISE AND CONFIDENCE – Walk into the room like you deserve to be there and imagine that you’ve already landed the job that you’re after. Try not to appear desperate to land the position, even if you really are!
SPEAK PROFESSIONALLY – Try to sound like you’re a natural for the job. Avoid immature-sounding speaking patterns, such as peppering your speech with too many “likes” and tilting the end of your sentences up so they sound like questions instead of statements.
