Being offered a job is such an exciting feeling! You've invested time and emotion into your job search, progressed far enough through the process and now have a job offer on the table…..but did you ask enough questions to know if this is a great match for you?
If you’ve ever applied for a job, you’ll know the first thing companies request is a CV and a cover letter. This leads to jobseekers “self-marketing” and adding CV frills to stand out from other applicants. But the recruitment industry is moving online, so how important are CVs and cover letters?
At coHired, we have combined our love for people and technology to get the best outcome for recruiters and jobseekers. We are aware of the unconscious human bias prevalent in recruitment. It arises due to subjective interpretation of the information by human mind. While it is impossible to eliminate the bias in any system, it is possible to minimise it through careful and conscious considerations.
The job market is always competitive.
Standing out from other jobseekers is hard at the best of times. Adding the impact of COVID-19 and an increase of jobseekers competing, it can seem even more daunting. So now employers have more choice than ever as many jobseekers face unemployment, here’s our tips on standing out from the crowd!
The job market has just massively changed. And you’re now likely to be flooded with huge applicant numbers for your jobs, and communicating with ALL of the jobseekers can be really time consuming!
For a jobseeker, hearing back about their application is so important.
