WOW YOUR POTENTIAL EMPLOYER

Our recruiters prepare you for the job market to maximise your chances of getting a job.
We’ll cover important factors such as...

  • COVER LETTERS
    Don’t skip this - the cover letter is the first thing
    your prospective employer will see and is a
    great opportunity to explain what the job means
    to you.

  • TAILORING YOUR CV
    Uploading the same CV for every
    job is ineffective. Your CV should be
    tailored to each role that you apply for to
    maximise its impact.

  • INTERVIEW TECHNIQUE
    Most employer’s decide if you’re right for them
    within 30 seconds - first impressions count!
    If you don’t prepare, you’re far less likely to
    succeed.

  • SOCIAL MEDIA
    Maintaining a professional image across your
    digital accounts and channels is critical if you
    want to create a good impression of yourself.
    When did you last check your privacy settings?

  • RESIGNATION
    Whilst this may be an uncomfortable
    conversation for some, you can still leave your
    place of work on a good note if you take the
    appropriate steps to direct the conversation.

  • STARTING A NEW JOB
    A scary prospect for some, this needn’t be
    the stress inducing experience that many
    new starters come to expect. We’ll help you
    make a good impression from the start.
