How good is your Resume?

CV‘s are very subjective. What one person reading your CV gains might be quite different from another. The reason you reach the selected for interview stage will differ but will always depend on a few critical variables.

Outside your control:

  • The urgency of the role
  • The time the recruiter gives to sift through applications
  • The other applicants
  • Whether the role exists or listed to meet ‘HR Policy criteria’
  • Internal candidates
  • Specific criteria met i.e. demographics, race, gender, age (cannot be advertised under the Human Rights Act)

Within your control:

  • Submitting a sub standard CV or letter
  • Missing the deadline
  • Not submitting a personalised letter or additional documentation required
  • Suitability – miss-matching skills and experience to job

Covering letters need the same amount of effort to secure an interview and a dream role. A good covering letter is your gateway to your interview. Don't underestimate the power of a well-worded and strategic application letter.

How to write a good covering letter:

Match your skills and attributes to what is required in the job specification or advertisement and ask yourself the following:

  • Is it easy for the reader to see how I can add value?
  • Have I championed my successes and key attributes?
  • Have I addressed the key competencies of the role?
  • Am I confident in my wording, grammar and punctuation?
  • Have I demonstrated how keen I am on the job and company?
  • Have I double checked the person's name and reference number?
  • Is it clear the letter has been personalised to this application?

If you have said no to any of the above let us take away the pressure.
