          • CVs – models and hints to help

            • CV

              Give employers a reason to meet you - remember they may have to read through 100s of CVs – make sure yours stands out;

              - What makes you unique? Put it near the beginning.
              - Don’t make it too long.
              - Make sure your extra-curricular activities demonstrate accomplishment, initiative, potential, communication skills and the ability to work with others.
              - Focus on value, not tasks: not "head waitress at local restaurant" but "increased nightly takings and customer satisfaction 20% by implementing new training programme as head waitress".
              - Make it relevant to the job: customize it to each different application.
              - You do NOT have to include your date of birth, place of birth and marital status
              - Format: there are many different opinions on what is or isn’t best. Look at models and templates and choose the best one for your experience and the job.

            • Covering Letters

              You are more likely to get a reply when you include a covering letter with your CV.

              - Your cover letter should be specific to the position you are applying for, relating your skills and experience to those noted in the job posting.
              - If sending an e-mail, put your covering letter as the body of your email. It's wise to format it as plain text as then it can be read by any email reader.
              - Try and find the name of the person you’re sending the application to – not just the title
              - Make it clear when you're available to start work: be as flexible as possible. Remember to read, spell-check and then double check everything before sending them out – you never get a second chance to make that first impression.

          • Interviews – how to make the best impression

            Take time to prepare before the interview:

            - Find out all you can about the company.
            - Read the job description CAREFULLY - It will help you aim your answers toward things they are actually looking for.
            - Prepare your own questions about the company and the job.


            Know your CV very well - review the order of your jobs, the tasks at each job, and the reason(s) you left. Also look through your CV to remind yourself of some stories where you found a problem and solved it, showed a good example of teamwork etc. Situation - the context Task - what you had to do Action - what and how you did it Result - the outcome and what difference it made.

            - Make sure you know where you’re going! Check – and double check – the address, so you are not late.
            - Take a clean copy of your CV to the interview.

            • Practise your answers to key interview questions:

              - "Tell me about yourself"
              - “What are your biggest strengths / weaknesses?”
              - “Give an example of teamwork you have shown”
              - “Why do you think you are suitable for this job?”
              - “What do you know about us?”

            • During the Interview

              - Maintain eye contact – to build rapport.
              - Using body language to create a strong first impression
              - Answer the question: you are of course keen to tell them about all your strong points but make sure it’s relevant to the question.
              - Increasing personal impact by using your voice more effectively: convey a clear and confident style; use pauses to control pace and deliver clear well-structured responses …and don’ts!
