It’s Day 5 of the races and what a week it’s been so far! Some of you are rolling in your winnings right now, but the majority are probably feeling a bit left out by lady luck. Likewise, for those on the job hunt, it can be very disheartening when your applications are going nowhere and others seem to be getting all the luck. If you’re yet to land the job of your dreams, worry not as the Matrix Tipster is here to guide you on how to land an interview.

 How to Make Sure you get the Call for the Interview

  • Make Sure You’re Applying For The Right Jobs – Target your job search on roles that you desire but that are also in line with your qualifications and competencies.
  • Always Be Improving – If the role you want is out of reach, consider upskilling. Research some courses or qualifications that can help you get to where you need.
  • Adjust – Tailoring your CV for the job you’re applying for is crucial. You have to show the employer how relevant your skills and experience are for the job in question.
  • Read And Re-read – Proof-read your CV! This is a simple step but is so important. Watch out for typos, bad grammar, gaps in your work history, etc. It helps to get someone else to double check too, as you’re not always able to spot your own mistakes.
  • Be Ready For Action – When your application does get selected, make sure you’re ready to go. Regularly check your email for updates, brush up on your interview skills, and make sure you’re fully prepared for the interview.
