Check your CV

 

Get to know your CV front to back. Make sure you have things like career gap explanations, reasons for leaving, and your day-to-day duties properly prepared. Don’t get caught out by your CV. A rule of thumb – if you’re not prepared to talk about certain areas of your CV, don’t include them.

 

Make sure it’s up to date, free from spelling/grammatical errors, and highlights your most valued skills to the best of your ability. Show us your achievements with the appropriate data and results, and keep it visually effective with short, bullet-pointed sentences.

 

Show us your skills

 

Get to know the job description and match the required skills to your own knowledge, achievements and first-hand accounts. A job application is simply a matter of hitting the relevant targets, so show us you’ve got what it takes to succeed in this role.

 

How do you relate to GM&T’s three core values of innovation, passion for excellence, growth and learning, and teamwork? Can you match your work experience to these ideals? Make sure you have some solid examples of when and how you demonstrated these behaviours to share with us.
