  • Your CV is not your life story. Make your CV/Application relevant to the job you want.

  • Do you know exactly where the company is? Research your route and transport options. You need to...

  • Think about the questions you want to ask. Remember an interview works both ways, you are also finding out about the employer. Is this an organisation you want to work for?
