Looking for a job is difficult at the best of times. Depending on your individual circumstances you may currently be unemployed, in a job you dislike, or you are simply looking for a fresh start away from your present role. There are many reasons why people seek new opportunities but if chances do not come your way quickly it can become easy to get downbeat and to lose motivation.
It is imperative that you are as prepared as possible for an interview and one of the most important aspects of this is to know how to talk about your achievements in interviews. Things you are proud of that you have achieved throughout your life and in previous positions must be contextual during your interview. Most people who attend a job interview will have achievements that they are proud of, but you must know how to make them relevant to the vacancy you are applying for. The A Star-Recruitment team are on hand to explain how you can do this.
A job interview can be an exciting yet nerve-wracking prospect. You have successfully gained an interview following your job application and now you have the chance to secure the job itself with a face to face meeting with your potential employers.

Without a well-written CV you will struggle to even get an interview for a job that you are applying for, therefore it is important for every candidate looking for a new job to eradicate any common CV mistakes before they submit their next application.
Your CV, and cover letter, are usually the first correspondence you will have with the recruiter handling your application or the company you are applying for a job with. It allows you to get off to the best possible start in your application. However, if it includes several errors or mistakes, submitting your CV is as far as your application will go.
