Getting Started

Step 1: Update your CV

Make sure that your CV is up to date. This doesn’t always mean highlighting your most recent experiences; it often means highlighting those most relevant to the type of job you’re looking for.

If you need some support, send your CV to us – we will be happy to help.

Step 2: Make yourself available

Send us your CV; update your LinkedIn status; make sure your CV is searchable on any job boards. Tread carefully if you’re already in employment, though; you wouldn’t want your boss stumbling across your CV.

Step 3: Be Proactive

You don’t have to search every day – once a week should be fine.

Step 4: Find a recruiter

They will be able to represent you, and will often put you forward for a job before it has even been advertised to the general public. We definitely do.

Step 5: Tailor your CV for each job you apply for

This is a vital step. It’s much better to send a strong CV to one person than it is to send a generic CV to a dozen people.

Step 6: Proofread!

People make some silly mistakes on their CVs. Unfortunately these are the ones that cost you the job.

Step 7: Always follow up

Employers are busy people and get swamped with hundreds of CVs each day. A week after you’ve applied for a job, follow up with a phone call or an email, to make sure your CV has been received. If nothing else it will force them to give your application a second look.

Step 8: Interviews: prepare, prepare, prepare
