When you find a job you are interested in applying for, it is important to:
- Conduct research on the company or organisation to find out what they do and where they are located. Check out their website and Google them – even sign up to their newsletters or follow them on social media.
- Develop any job application documents required for the application – this may include customising your CV to the job you are applying for and developing a covering letter
- Follow the job application process ‘rules’ – some jobs use online recruitment processes which ask for particular documents when making your application. They may even ask questions as part of their recruitment processes. It is necessary to provide documents asked for and answer these questions otherwise your application may not be considered. If you are unsure about what to provide, make a phone call or email the contact person to clarify the requirements.
- Provide contact details which are current and that you use regularly. Employers/recruiters will use these details to get in touch with you about your application so it is vital these details are correct.
