How to stand out from other jobseekers
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!
1.Volunteer - develop soft skills employers look for.
Volunteering helps prevent “CV gaps” employers may question. It also gives “on the job” experience you can include CV so it’s a great way to build your CV if you’re new to the workforce!
2.Upskill - improve those job-specific skills.
If you don’t have the right skills or experience, don’t put yourself in a deflating situation where you’re likely to get a rejection email. Instead focus on being a candidate that can’t be missed:
Whilst some companies and jobs can dictate that you need qualifications, others are willing to consider candidates who may be unqualified but show commitment to their own professional growth.
Once you have a new skill or experience, you can upload this onto your profile at coHired so we can consider this when trying to match you to local companies who need these skills too!
