qualified for the job

Showing an employer that you are qualified for the job is crucial when it comes to trying to secure a job interview. Check out these tips on how to demonstrate you have the expertise to succeed in the role.

Update Your Resume

One of the easiest ways to demonstrate your expertise and knowledge is to update your resume with all of your latest work experience. If you send in a resume that doesn’t match the job requirements then it’s unlikely you will be invited to an interview. Focus on the job description and tailor your resume to match the role by demonstrating previous positions and previous work projects. You should also use the career objective section of your resume to highlight your desire to work and progress within the company and briefly explain why you are interested in working for the organisation in a cover letter. Personalising your resume and showing the employer that you have the experience to do the job should hopefully help you to secure a job interview.

Hobbies

The hobbies section of your resume can give the employer a real insight into your personality and interests – and there’s no reason why these can’t be relevant to the job. Show how your hobbies or out-of-work interests have helped to develop your skills and qualifications.

Career Portfolio

To add weight to your job application you could consider showing samples of your work from your career portfolio. Showing an employer some hard evidence of projects completed and results achieved can further support your qualifications and skills.

Network

Attending networking events and getting to know people in your industry can further support your qualifications. The more people you know in the industry, the more professional references you’ll have to support your skills and endorse you so get networking!
