• Hints and Tips

    CVs

    • Always use a clear typeface.
    • Keep it short and sweet and if possible only one to two pages of A4. (Three pages at the most)
    • Check for spelling mistakes.
    • Submit it in on time.
    • If the advert asked you to send your CV and complete an online application form, do both.
    • Don’t attach extra documents unless specifically requested.
    • Remember to put your name, address and contact details clearly at the top of your CV.
    • Start with a one paragraph summary of your strengths and experience.
    • Document your career history in reverse order, starting with your most recent job first.
    • Go into more detail about your current job i.e. job title, years in the position, key tasks, responsibilities and achievements.
    • Keep details shorter for previous work experience.
    • Follow your employment history with educational qualifications.
    • Highlight any voluntary or non work experience relevant to the job you are applying for.

    How to do the best at your interview

    Before your interview:

    • Get the details right – time, place and name of interviewer.
    • Arrive early and well prepared so you can relax and feel confident.
    • Do some research about the company. Study the job advert and website so that you know what’s expected of you within the role.
    • Think about how your particular skills and experience make you right for the job – make notes to help jog your memory.

    At your interview:

    • Be yourself.
    • Dress smartly.
    • First impressions are everything.
    • Turn off your mobile phone.
    • Take a copy of your CV or application.
    • Don’t just answer yes or no to questions. Give answers that allow the interviewer to get to know you, and offer examples where appropriate.
    • Be aware of your body language – maintain eye contact and sit up straight.
    • Don’t be afraid to refer back to your notes or even write down key points during the interview. This shows you are keen, enthusiastic and taking an interest in what is being said to you.
    • It’s always good to ask questions at the end to show you are interested in the position and company, and to clarify things you may not have understood.
    • Aim to ask around three good questions.

    At the end of your interview:

    • Thank the interviewer for taking the time to see you and leave with a firm handshake.
    • Reiterate that you are interested in the position.
    • If there was something you forgot to say, follow up with an email and again thank your interviewer for the opportunity to be interviewed.
