Hot Jobs!


  • Hot Tips

      • Don't apply for multiple jobs in multiple vocations.  The employer will  be unsure about where your real desire lies and may not even contact you.
      • Use professional email addresses.  Modern and trendy ones that are inappropriate do not sit well with employers.
      • Always maintain eye contact in the interview.  This shows the employer that you are interested and confident in what they have to say.
      • Give yourself plenty of time to get to the interview.  Research the location, do a test run if you have to.  Getting there 15 minutes early is always better than 5 minutes late.
      • Make sure your referees speak highly of you.  There is nothing worse than a bad reference from a recent employer.
      • Have your resume proof read before sending it to an employer.  Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors will not help your cause.
      • Dress well at all times.  Poor presentation gives the employer the impression that your work performance may also be poor.
      • Remember the interview starts before you walk in the door!  Be prepared to be on show the minute you apply for the job.
      • Make sure in your interview that you have good reasons for wanting the job.  Being vague or sketchy is not what employers want to hear.
      • If you are applying for a job, make sure you have voicemail on your phone.  If an employer cannot contact you, then you may miss out!
      • Don't be late for an interview. An employer may think you will be late for work if you can't get to an interview on time!
      • Is your resume up to date?
      • Spelling and grammatical errors on your resume will lead to an instant rejection by the employer!
      • Don't forget to proof read your resume!
      • One word or two word answers in an interview won't get you across the line.
