Here is a little taste of what employers look for and how by following these few steps, can boost your individual employability.
Step 1: Resume Reconstruction
Resumes are all about memorability. What makes you stand out? What makes you you? Once established, always cater your resume to the jobs you are interested in/have applied for. This displays relevance and initiative to possible employers. Discover various templates available via subscription or emailing us.
Step 2: Seek External Advice
It is important to have an external eye review your resume, as this provides a different perspective. May it be a friend, partner or relative, have them review it using an objective mindset. This will allow you receive constructive criticisms in order for improvement.
Step 3: Effective Job Search
An effective job search is conducted through actively searching for jobs in your chosen industry. Research the available companies and apply for the jobs that you know, you have the right skill set for, to improve your chance of progression. Don't be intimidated, you can do more than you think!

Step 4: Interview Prep
Research! Relax! Be Yourself! The interview process is usually viewed as the most daunting, but it shouldn't be. Research the company before your meeting, and bring a small notebook with you to jot down comments and questions, that will support you during your meeting.
Be yourself and relax! It is so much easier to remember awesome things about yourself that actually happened instead of overselling a rehearsed version of yourself! Use personal and professional experiences to describe your skill sets.
Most importantly, use this interview to find out if the company is for you! Remember your time is just as valuable as theirs so make sure you ask the right questions! Contact us to get free practice interview questions that you can use.
Step 5: Perseverance
Rejection is inevitable, but don't let it define you. Don't let one or two rejection emails get you down. The world of work can be tricky and competitive, but with the right support and advice, you will secure a job in no time. Keep pushing! Want more?
