Here are a few tips to take into account before you apply for a job.

  1. RESEARCH. This is evident in any job you will apply for. Research the company and the  role thoroughly as this will certainly impress the employer when it comes to the interview.
  2. Get in touch with someone who is in-charge of the recruitment process to find out more information about the role in more detail. Be formal, friendly and polite and you should ask in particular what skills they are looking for. You might even want to ask for a day´s experience or shadow someone for a day. This will instantly show your enthusiasm in comparison to those other candidates who have instead taken a back seat.
  3. Stand out. If a job requires you to have knowledge in Excel or Word Press and you don't ,  find out more information about these areas. This minor detail could be the reason they reject your application. Ask someone who has knowledge about this area or even buy a book that teaches the basics.  Anything that will help you prepare for the application process will better your chance at getting through to the next stage.
