So you’ve gotten through the first round of the job application process and you’ve been invited to round two: The Interview! This joy is quickly replaced by nerves — possibly even panic. No matter how many interviews you’ve been to, each one is slightly different. We are eager to put our best foot forward, but are often unsure how exactly to do this.. Interview skills go far beyond putting on your best suit and disguising your weaknesses as secret strengths, it’s about being genuine. More than that, it’s about being genuinely impressive and a good fit.
Almost every professional opportunity starts with sending someone your CV. Whether it be for a job opportunity, a volunteer position or an academic programme, your CV is your opportunity to shine in the application process. With a few simple changes your CV will go from ‘almost in the dustbin’ to top of the pile!
