Be Smart


Think about, then action your individual job hunt. Be ahead of the game by re-writing your CV and application forms to have a business emphasis. Steer away from the common student writing style which includes too much emphasis on hobbies, course details, references, holiday travel and grades of every examination ever taken such as swimming, gymnastics and dance.

Focus instead on your language and choose words in your CV/application form that have a business-like tone. Words like solved, performed, redirected, developed, implemented, sold and supervised create a positive business-like impression and say so much more about you than woolly words like involved, assisted, hardworking, helpful and ambitious.
