Each week I’m going to share some short tips and ideas that may help you in your job hunting and help you navigate the project management recruitment path. It’s often the simpliest and most common sense stuff that trips people up when looking for a new job.
When you see a vacancy you’d like to apply for, do you read all the way down to the bottom? Around 80% of candidates don’t read to the bottom of the advert, the part of the advert that will normally give direction on how to apply for the vacancy. A cover note may be needed covering your suitability for the role; a indicative salary or rate range might be required or details about your availability
If you’re not applying for the role in the way you’ve been asked to, the agency or organisation may feel that your attention to detail or ability to follow simple instruction is lacking.
