Nova Search’s tips to landing the job you want

 

  1. Know your career goals

     

    You need to know what career you want. Make sure you have a clear and realistic goal, determine how you plan to reach it and know what you require to land the role.

     

  2. Get CV help

     

    If you are struggling knowing how to start your CV, ask a friend, a family member or even google to help! CV’s are so important as it shows the employer/recruiter all of your skills, experience and qualifications. Always make sure you proof read your CV as spelling errors can lead to your CV being thrown in the bin. We’ve had far too many of them!

     

  3. Use all job search sites

     

    Take advantage of all job search sites, sign up for job alert updates and newsletters. Use filtered searches to find the right job for you and apply for as many as you can.

     

  4. Do your research

     

    When you are applying for jobs, research the companies to find out their products and/or services, and the work environment, this will give you an good idea to see if you would like to work there.

     

  5. Apply with confidence

     

    Apply for jobs you are interested in even if you only meet some of their requirements. Depending on the position, employers might hire motivated individuals who learn quickly and provide them with skills training on the job. If you meet a small part of a job’s qualifications but believe you can still succeed in that role, apply. Include examples of your work ethic and ability to learn new skills in your CV.

     

  6. Prepare for the interview

     

    Research common interview questions (we have loads on our website and on our social media). Ask a friend or family member to go over practise questions with you. If you are well prepared you will be more confident when it comes to the real thing!

     

  7. Follow up after the interview

       If you have not heard back from them after a week, follow up with a phone call or an email. Make sure you show excitement and interest in the job. Continue looking for other jobs when you are waiting for a response.
