top tips for job search

  • Research your market and learn where the demand exists. These can be easily accessed by signing up to job boards or even registering with specialist recruitment agencies like GemPool. 

  • Once you’ve identified the job you’re interested in, tailor your CV in line with the given job description. 

  • Modify your CV according to every job you’re applying for, rather than sending out one general CV to all. This is because different jobs are probably looking for different skills. 

  • Ensure your CV has all the right contact information and is flawless in terms of grammar.

  • While preparing for the interview along with the technical preparation, it is key to conduct research on the employer in question. Here are the top 10 questions to ask during an interview.
