First, go through the full advert, piece by piece and with a pen, ideally a highlighter, mark up every single stated requirement or characteristic they have got stated they want. Even single words and phrases!
Now you must go through your RESUME, intricately, and find a clear aspect of this that addresses all of the Employer’s stated requirements.
If you can match off every thing that’s brilliant, although do make sure that your wording on the CV offers you in the most effective possible way.
If you can’t match everything then you have two choices. If you have what they are requesting then you MUST find the best way possible to include that into the CV hence leaving behind no weaknesses.
In case you have virtually any inquiries with regards to exactly where in addition to how to make use of job advertising site, you possibly can email us in our web-page.
Alternatively if you don’t have what they are asking for – especially if its ‘black and white’ then try and consist of something into the CV that suggests something close or a ‘part of’- such as part qualification, or a yrs experience when they are asking for 2/3 years.
What your aim should be, although you must never lie, is to reduce the reasons why a prospective Employer may exclude you from consideration.
You lazy with CV personalisation. You need to be prepared to put the work in by examining and then, when necessary ‘tweaking’ this!
ALSO – very important!
Do remember as well that you must make sure that the correct things are emphasised on the CV and that the in the best sequential order for the Job. It could be that whilst all the ‘ingredients’ go in you have the amounts incorrect. If the Employer is strong on the particular requirement, but you only have a brief reference to it well down the RESUME, then you clearly need to change things round.
Is it necessary to fit a Job fully before you consider applying?
Not at all within my view! There’s an old saying that if you possibly can do 50 to 75 percent of a Job you can ‘grow in to the rest’. Clearly for some positions, medicine for instance that is certainly not the case!
However for several less prescriptive positions Employers might welcome the opportunity to ‘mold the candidate’ and provide that person with the opportunity to ‘grow in the job’.
So the key point here is not to let your own perceived deficiency prevent you from trying. Also do remember, if you are doing the matching exercise above, that there maybe no-one who fits the Job 100% perfectly (or better still for you personally – does fit it yet fails to sell themselves fully). So that you 60 to 90% ‘fit’ might actually be the highest amongst all candidates. Do keep a positive focus, you may nicely be the best candidate when you have dreamed otherwise.
