Job searching is definitely hard work and not fun, especially now due to the amount of people being forced to look for new jobs after the pandemic. There are things that you can do, however, that can increase your chances of getting a job. Read on to find out how.
- Make your CV stand out from the rest. I recommend contacting the National Careers Service as they can check your CV and edit it for you to triple your chances of getting a job. Even if you don’t have that much work experience, they can identify your skills and make you look more employable through your CV.
- Don’t forget to write a cover letter to give yourself an extra chance of showing the recruiter how qualified you are and why you deserve the job they are offering.
- Do as much research as you can about the company you want to work for. If you can show them that you know about the business during the interview, they will be impressed by your enthusiasm to work there and are more likely to hire you.
- Don’t limit yourself to one job. Apply for a variety of jobs that are suitable for you to give you plenty of options. You won’t lose anything from applying to many as you’ll get more interview experience, and remember, you can always decline offers!
- Lastly, sign up to a procurement recruitment agency to help you with your job search. I highly recommend Procurement Recruitment agency Talent Drive. They will look at your skills and experience to find jobs that are relevant to you.
