Follow these tips to ace your job applications
We've put together some key tips that will help your applications stand out.
1. Customize your CV and cover letter to fit the requirements of the job
Whenever you come across an advertised position, take your time to read and understand the requirements. Polish your resume to ensure your skills are in sync with what the recruiter wants and remove any grammatical errors from your resume. Always remember a good application will get you an interview.
2. Avoid using too many symbols and colors in your CV
The golden rule to presenting a winning CV is less is more. Simplicity should guide you to be intentional with your job application. Do not use too many colors and symbols when creating your CV. Too many colors and symbols increase the chances of your CV getting rejected by the Applicant Tracking System (ATS). One or two colors are enough. Check out our CV templates.
3. Use keywords
The employer is looking to see that their ideal talent has the required skills and expertise in the relevant field of interest. As such, you need to use the right keywords and phrases in your CV. If the job is about communication, the word communication should appear strategically within your CV.
