Advice from Local Employers:

“With so many people applying for positions I really look for the people that stand out. Standing out to me is not simply showing how great you are but how much you have looked into the position offered. If I see something in the opening statement linked specifically to the role you have applied for I will actually take time to read your C.V. I know it takes a bit more time however researching the role is so crucial for me when I am looking through so many applicants. However it does not just stop at the C.V, in an interview I expect the person to have looked at our website and have specific questions relating to the role. The interview process takes a lot of time and effort to organise so I expect time and effort to be spent from the applicants”. David Sparkes – Solent Beds
