Top Tips

You are not an obvious candidate for a job if you currently work in a different sector, so you need to grab the employer’s attention early. List all relevant skills and achievements on the first page. Include any relevant outside-work activities and training you are taking or are about to embark on. Then list your employment dates and job titles on the second page. Consider tweaking your job title to fit an employer’s jargon. If they are advertising for a ‘personnel specialist’ and your previous role was a HR adviser, call yourself a ‘personnel specialist’. There is no difference in roles but you are gaining an edge by aligning yourself with that position.

Tell the consultancy how the interview went and get feedback from them, including when they expect the client to make a decision. If there is something else you want to mention, send a brief email or phone the agency.

Perhaps one of your previous roles enabled you to lead a team, whereas another enhanced your IT skills. It is useful to see what you have taken from various jobs, and to demonstrate how they have helped you to develop.

Never, ever embellish the truth in your job application, no matter how well you think you can cover it up.  It only takes a quick phone call for the interviewer to discover that your First in Biochemistry from Oxford is actually a NVQ in Food Science from your local community college.  Highlight the positives in your CV, and don’t include blatant lies – even in the section on your leisure activities.
