Winning That Job: What Does it Take?

The question that all jobseekers want to know: How do I get the job that I’m applying for? If you’re one of them, here’s a guide to help you.

In applying for jobs, how do you ensure that you stand above the competition in getting the role? Is it luck or is there a formula to landing the job? Qualifications, skills and experience aside, there is more to a successful job application.

In sieving through hundreds of applicants, employers lookout for the candidate that is best suited for the role. But I do have all the criteria that the employer is seeking you may say.

Question is, did you manage to convey this clearly to your potential bosses? Perhaps this is the reason why you have not been receiving the call back after the many interviews you have attended.

To stand out in your application, here are some questions that you need to ask yourself:

Have you updated your resume and customised it to be aligned to the job role you’re applying for?

2. Research

Have you done enough research on the company and the industry to determine if you’re the right fit for it?

3. Interview

Are you prepared to answer the questions that the employer will ask during the interview?
