Top Tips for Jobs
Making a good first impression is important – so we’ve put together some tips to help you succeed and get those interview offers rolling in.
- Make sure you read the job description properly! It sounds obvious, but many people go off on a tangent and it’s immediately clear to recruiters that you don’t understand what the job is about.
- Tailor your application to the person and job specifications. A great trick here is to create an excel document with each specification point down the side, and each piece of previous experience along the top, filling in the squares to match them up. This way, you can easily see how your experience is relevant to each requirement.
- Mention all parts of the specification. Even if you don’t have the experience, don’t just ignore it – talk about how you are a fast learner and how related experiences would help you do that task.
- Make sure it’s clear and easy to read – you could even break it down into headlines if that makes it easier. The person reading it will find it a lot simpler to check you’ve got the right experience if you lay it out clearly.
- Be specific and give examples. Don’t just say ‘I have experience using Microsoft Excel’, go into detail about a project that you worked on and how you used Excel to process the data.
- Be enthusiastic and add some personality. Tell them about your passions for conservation, what you enjoy, and what drives you to want to work in the industry. Give them a taste of who you are so that your application will stand out.
- Do your research and tailor your application. Check out the organisation before you apply, make sure you know what they do and what their aims are, and bring that into your writing so it’s personalised for them. This lets them know you’ve taken your time and are serious about the job.
- Triple check your application before sending! Spelling or grammatical errors, especially of names, will automatically put people off. Also make sure you’ve attached all the right documents to the application or email.
- Make sure it’s not too long. Recruiters have a lot of reading to do, so they want you to be concise. Keep cover letters to one or two A4 pages, and CVs to one. If they ask for an application form, this is where you can expand and go into detail about why you’re the best person for the job.
- Be honest. Companies know that not everyone will have all the required experience but lying about it will only make you look bad. Highlight your initiative and willingness to learn, instead of twisting your experience to suit their specification.
