As the races are kicking off today we’re bringing you our very own tips from the Matrix Tipster (with a difference)!!

Be Prepared!

If you are going to the races you should be prepared for all weather possibilities!

Likewise if you are job hunting you should always be prepared!

Job Hunting Preparation Tips

  • Have a recent CV completed and ready to send – you never know when you’ll hear about the right opportunity for you
  • Put your mobile number on your CV and be prepared to answer professionally – first impressions for the initial call from a prospective employer are crucial
  • Set up a professional sounding voicemail facility on your mobile! No funny messages!
  • Set up a professional sounding e-mail account – every little detail matters
  • Be active on LinkedIn. Optimise your profile with keywords that highlight your skills and experience
  • Prepare thoroughly for interviews. Research the employer. Go that little bit further than just checking their website

It’s an old saying but if you “fail to prepare, you prepare to fail!” Job hunting is a job in itself so be ready for all eventualities!
