Jobseekers feel “Presentation at Interview” is key to standing out from the crowd
A recent survey by TipTopJob.com found 23% of jobseekers felt that “Presentation at Interview” is the most important factor to make you stand out from the crowd when applying for a new job.
This was closely followed by 22% who felt that “Practical/Relevant Work Experience” was most important, 20% “Effective Cover Letter”, 18% “Previous Qualifications” and 17% “Relevant Skills”.
With the number of applications per job increasing, it is by no means easier to find a job. It is becoming more and more important to focus on those most important factors that ensure you stand out from the crowd. Some examples include, creating a tailored CV with relevant work experience, qualifications and relevant skills to the job, a tailored and targeted cover letter, being prepared for your interview and making sure you look the part when attending your interview.
Corinne Hutchinson, comments, “It is such a tough market out there and so many people apply for one job after another in their desperation to get into a new job. If you are finding it tough, it is so important to take a step back and look at what jobs you are applying for and decide if they are the right ones for you. Once this has been addressed, it is then time to look at the CV, Cover Letter and preparation for an Interview”.
