Finding a job can be daunting, but perseverance and positivity are the name of the game!
Don't let rejection letters put you down - you find an advert for your dream job, spend hours filling out the application and writing a stunning cover letter.
A week or two later, you get an automated response saying you haven't been selected. Don't let this deter you, though!
Employers often have to trawl through thousands of applications, so all you can do is try to make your CV stand out. It's then up to the employer to find the gems.
Take feedback on board - If you get a rejection letter or fall at the interview hurdle, always ask for feedback. Even if you don't agree with someone's decision, you can turn a negative into a positive, and be better prepared for next time.
It's a great way to get insight into what employers are actually looking for, too - and can help identify areas and skills you may want to focus on to make yourself a stronger candidate.
Be organised and methodical - Your financial situation may depend on you finding a job, and this kind of pressure can make things difficult. Keeping a cool and professional approach will really help.
One tip I find useful is to approach finding employment as if that were a job in itself. Make notes, schedule appointments, organise your time and do plenty of research - just as you would in an office.
Make it personal - At every stage of the application process, you could be competing with countless other people. To get noticed, you need to make sure your personality shines through.
Avoid sounding generic, show off the things that make you interesting and unique, and try targeting employers whose image or brand are in line with your own values.
