Get your CV to the top of the pile

A prospective employer will form their first impression of you from your CV, so it’s important to get it right. We’ll help you prepare a CV which highlights your skills and opens doors to interviews:

OUR TOP TIPS FOR CVS

Keep it simple

CVs should be short and concise, don’t write more than two pages and include a brief summary of previous jobs.

Cover the basics

Don’t forget to include your basic information – name, address, contact details, nationality and visa status.

Keep it relevant

Focus on qualifications, skills and work experience relevant to the position you are applying for – tailor your CV for each organisation and job.

Be factual

Ensure your employment history and qualification details are accurate and complete – start with the most recent and name each employer, your job title and start and end dates.

Stand out

This is also your chance to shine – emphasise the skills and experience you have gained in each position and demonstrate your personal commitment to a career in travel.

Check your spelling

Employers want to know you have good attention to detail – check your spelling and grammar!

Interview tips

Interviews can be daunting; however, it’s important to remember that employers want you to do well.

Our friendly team at Prospects4Leisure Travel will help you prepare for interviews so you can be confident, be yourself and have the best opportunity of securing the position.

OUR TOP TIPS FOR INTERVIEWS

Prepare, prepare, prepare

Preparation is the key to a good interview – it shows you have a genuine interest in the vacancy and are prepared to work hard. Read about the company, learn more about the role and remember your interviewer’s name.

Think about the job

It’s important to know what you think you have to offer the company and what they can offer you.

Practice your answers

Employers expect you to have thought about standard interview questions – think about how you would answer questions like these:

  • Tell me about yourself?
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Listen and be professional

Listen carefully to the interviewer and their questions, maintain eye contact and reply with relevant information – remember this is a conversation.

Ask questions

Ask questions which demonstrate you have thought about the vacancy or about subjects which have come up in the interview – it shows you were listening.

Be punctual and tidy

Don’t be late – check your route and travel plans in advance and leave plenty of time. Wear smart, clean and comfortable clothes. Remember, recruiters want to employ a professional to represent their company, so be confident, polite and show your enthusiasm.
