•  Clarity:  Be certain and get clear on the job you want. Reflect on your strengths and weaknesses and the type of work you enjoy doing. Ask yourself, "what do I want in a job?".

  •  Who is offering your job role?  Find company reviews online, research their culture and how they treat others. Find out how much they pay people. Do you see yourself working for  them?

  •  Don't be lazy:  Each job from an employer is unique in its own right. Tailor your resume to each job. Be an obvious fit, study that job description and familiarise yourself with their language and what they are looking for. Use job-related keywords intentionally and strategically when it comes to describing your skills and qualifications.

  •  Write a personalised cover letter:  Personalising a cover letter might seem to be a daunting time-0wasting activity, but it isn't. Many people struggle with structuring one, so, there's a temptation to skip it - especially if the potential employer never ask for one. Whether they ask or not, make it a good habit to write and submit one.

  •  Be easy to reach:  One of the best tips for getting a job is to be available and quick to respond.
