Applying for jobs online has now become so ridiculously easy that many candidates are firing their CV at positions at will, without much thought given to whether their background or job skills are an ideal fit for that job.
The reality is that although online job applications have now become easier to complete, candidates should take as much due care and attention as they would filling in an application the old-fashioned way.
Gone are the days when the local paper on a Thursday was your route to the job market with the internet now creating a globalised marketplace. The expansive reach of the internet means that a job position posted online has the potential to reach out to a worldwide audience. This obviously increases competition for every position in an already crowded job market.
Therefore it is imperative that your job application gets noticed above the competition.
To help guide you just how to do this, we have put together a short video which will demonstrate how you can get this edge over the competition.
Join Mark and Charles from Coburg Banks as they talk you through what’s happening in the candidate market right now, what criteria you should be selecting when applying for jobs and how to get your application to stand out from the crowd.
