When I was looking for a job, I was told that you couldn't use the same CV for every job you applied for, you have to adapt it.

Covering letters should always be adapted, but I fired off roughly the same CV umpteen times on my job search, and got a good few positive responses.

Interestingly, the Job Centre didn't think I matched their requirements for the role of Employment advisor, yet one of the world's biggest Market Research companies took me on as a project developer, so it really is a bit hit and miss out there :agree: :agree:

Use the same CV but change the covering letter.

Golden rule with CVs - put your best stuff at the start and end of it - with the less interesting blurb in the middle [where it is most easily forgotten about]. That way anyone reading it will start and end with the best impression of you [wee bit psychology there naw...]

At interviews, never say 'if' 'would' etc - always speak as if you had the job - eg what will be my pay grade rather than what would my pay grade be... you don't have to say that you're positive to come across as positive. In general, try not to use negatives such as No - try to find an alternative positive way of responding instead.

Best of British!

Career Scotland can be quite helpful........... at times :wink:

My rule is, change the letter supporting application for each job to something relevant to the post your applying for. Always come across as keen and ready to learn at interview - that way, any skills you don't currently have that are required to do the job probably won't play as big a part in you not being successful.

Good luck.
