It’s important to make your CV or application stand out and grab an employer’s attention. When you’re looking for any role you’ll be competing against other candidates. So writing a good CV or job application, can be the difference between you getting the job or not.
It’s better to do a couple of well-tailored applications than many generic ones. Employers want to see that you’ve researched the company, you fit the requested skills and you’re interested in the role.
Employers receive many job applications for their posts, so don’t be too disheartened if you don’t get shortlisted for a job. There can be a wide range of reasons why one candidate is selected over another. If you’re unsuccessful it’s a good idea to ask for feedback on your application, and many employers will be happy to provide this to you. Our resources on confidence can help you if you're unsuccessful.
