Keyboard, Button, Key, Entering, Input, Internet, Data

It’s easy to feel like you’re lost in the crowd when job searching. That’s why it’s important to take a stand and get yourself noticed! Hiring managers these days are likely to be inundated with applications – here’s our top tips for making sure your application gets noticed.

Tailor your cover letter and CV. It’s time consuming, but making sure you tailor your CV to bring out your skills relevant to the role in question will definitely make your application stand out.

Don’t wait for the advert! There’s no harm in approaching an organisation you’d like to work for even if they’re not advertising at the time – they may have a role up and coming which could be perfect for you!

Make it personal. Using LinkedIn is a must these days. LinkedIn is a great tool for making a more personal connection to hiring managers too, so use your network and get noticed!

Ask for feedback. If you’re unsure about how you’re doing or if there’s a way you could improve your job search, ask people around you for advice and tips. Equally, if you’re unsuccessful in applying for a role, always ask for feedback, both so you can improve your performance but also show you’re serious about getting it right next time.
