Hi there

Some really interesting and useful links with information on how to apply for a job:

CVs

The purpose of a CV is to market yourself to an employer and gain an interview.

  • Creating CVs – identifying the key requirements, your relevant skills, and choosing the appropriate format
  • Chronological CV – listing your details using headings, in reverse chronological order
  • Skills-based or functional CV – emphasising your skills and personal qualities
  • Improving a CV – giving your CV a face lift, with examples to illustrate how to improve a CV

Applications

Depending on the organisation(s) you are applying to you will come across a number of application and assessment methods.

Interviews

An interview format can be one to one, or there may be second or third interviewers in the form of a panel.

Here is a very interesting audio from the Economist on social networks such as Facebook and MySpace.

Do you think that social networkings are safe? Do you post too many personal details?

Here is an audio from the Economist about the social network Facebook.
