The UK employment industry is performing the best it has in over 50 years, yet recruiters are experiencing increasing difficulties sourcing talent. Employin5 allows Employers to search through more structured and detailed candidate profiles. Which means you have to make the most of your profile. We’ve put together some tips for how you can do that…
Ensure Your Information Is Up To Date
Firstly, you need to ensure that your contact information is kept accurate. That means that both us and potential employers will be able to contact you quickly, and you don’t want to miss out! We also allow you to select a number of details about your ideal job, from education and job levels, to salary estimates and listing types. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to match with the right employer. And don’t forget to select that you’re actively looking for work!
Write A Winning Cover Letter
Writing a great cover letter can be tough. If it’s too long and wordy, an employer could get bored. But if it’s too short then you’re not selling yourself properly. A cover letter is an introduction of yourself, your qualifications for the job, and a request for an interview, not the first draft of your memoir. Focus on your work experience and how it makes you the best candidate for your ideal job. And remember to proofread properly!
Your Experiences Are Achievements, Not Tick Boxes
When you talk about your education and work experience, you need to make them sound like the achievements they are. You are being hired to add value to a company. So, tailor your experiences to the job you’re searching for, rather than treating them like a box ticking exercise. Be as detailed as you can.
And Finally, Sell Yourself
You have the opportunity to add skills, certificates, languages and hobbies to your Employin5 profile. Include technologies, software, and systems you have experience with; however, the key here is staying relevant. But being able to speak other languages and having other hobbies that you’re passionate about speaks to you as a well rounded person, surely an asset to any company. Don’t be afraid to show off a little! Employers are used to having lots of great candidates, so you need to stand out from the crowd.
Now that you’re better prepared to make the most of it, you should create your own profile in 5 minutes and wait for employers to reach out.
