Get a better understanding of what exactly an employer is looking for and use those insights to put some extra shine on your job application.
Not Applying for a Job Unless You Meet the Requirements: When you look at a job advert look at the minimum requirements. Don’t apply unless you meet the requirements
Telling the Truth on Your Resume, Application and Interview: Don’t lie on your resume or during any part of the application process. Lies have a way of catching up with you. If you get hired under false pretences and the truth is later revealed there is a good chance your boss will fire you
Showing Up On Time for Your Interview: When you arrive for an interview late, it not only makes you look bad, it disrupts other people’s schedules. Plan to arrive at the building where your interview is to take place at least a half hour early
Being Respectful to the Receptionist or Secretary: Be polite to the person who greets you when you arrive for an interview. Receptionists and secretaries are their employers’ gatekeepers. In addition, the receptionist or secretary will more than likely tell his or her boss about your behaviour.
Always Letting the Employer Know If You Decide to Reject an Offer: As soon as you decide you are going to reject a job offer, let the employer know, so they can extend an offer to another candidate.
