Landing your dream job requires proper research, preparation and determination, but thanks to modern technology and websites such as www.jobalert.ie the task of sourcing vacant positions has become a lot easier. You can sign up for job alert notifications and very soon opportunities will come looking for you.
Once you have identified a suitable position, you must then fully examine the job specification and tailor your CV and Cover Letter to highlight the qualifications, experience and competencies you have that demonstrate why you are the best person for the job. Impressing your potential future employer starts here and hopefully you can bag an interview.
If a full job specification is not available you may want to request one or research similar positions that have full job specifications outlined. This will help when you are trying to find key words and descriptions of competencies required to sell yourself appropriately.
