HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
TALKING CV’S AND THE ATS
We are firm believers that you should never underestimate the power of a CV. As Richard said earlier this week, your CV is your opportunity to sell yourself and frankly, if your CV doesn’t help you stand out, then you will never get the chance to interview in person.
In this workshop, James will give you his refreshingly honest advice about what your CV does and doesn’t need, cover easy tricks to stand out and also discuss the dreaded ATS topic – can the computer really say no?
JOB SEARCH STRATEGY
Every good job search needs a strategy, and by strategy we DO NOT mean hitting the apply button to every single possible opportunity in the hope that something will work out.
Taking back control is key to your success. Do not leave your fate in the hands of a random recruiter at the end of an email… the chances are you will be disappointed.
GETTING THE BEST OUT OF LINKEDIN
Cold hard truth….
Posting “I need a job” on Linkedin will not get you hired. Yes people will post messages of support, yes you may get one or two people to share your profile, but the fact is that you are going to need to make a bit more effort than that.
That said, Linkedin is an incredibly powerful tool for you to utilise and James is ready to explain all.
