As a job hunter, you need to make sure you stand out. It’s not easy – the job market is a busy place and there are lots of people competing for the same positions. Here are some of the things you can do to make yourself memorable:
- Be friendly. Job hunting is stressful, but your potential new employer or recruiter doesn’t need to know this. Smile and be friendly.
- Make sure your CV and written communication are perfect. Lots of people have similar skills and say similar things, so make sure yours is 100% accurate to get you noticed.
- Be honest. Many candidates lie about why they want the job or their experience. If you are straight to the point and always tell the truth, it will show.
- Ask questions. Employers like people who interact with them and show an interest. It will help to make you more memorable to them as well.
