Before You Apply: Prepare Your Documents
  • CV/Resume: A well-prepared and up to date CV/Resume is a must - be sure to include key information relevant to the job you are applying for. Include your qualifications and describe your key skills and experience clearly.

  • Cover Letter: Cover Letters are not mandatory however having a cover letter can help make a good first impression. It is a great way to introduce yourself to a potential employer and is often the first document hirers see.

  • References: You will often be asked to provide references from your previous employment to verify your skills and experience. References should be professional connections who can attest to your qualification for the job you are applying for. Ensure your referees are credible and contactable and always ask permission to use someone as a referee in advance.
