Hiring Managers are busy: making an immediate impact with your CV and interview technique is paramount to your success in getting noticed in a saturated market.
It's often suggested that a hiring decision can be made within just the first five minutes of the interview, and that employers spend an average of 20-30 seconds glancing at a CV before deciding whether or not to interview you. This slim window can be exacerbated further when considering the time pressures that many project hiring managers face within the engineering sector, especially when considering that employers in this space often recruit in volume in a very short timeframe.
NES Global Talent are here to help. We've put together some essential do's and don't's in regards to writing your cover letter, CV, your interview technique and even considerations for how to behave online on your social media accounts, in order to help you prepare and impress your potential employer.
