Tips and advice

Apart from the issues discussed in this section for online applications, the following points are useful to note:

  • Keywords

Job sites on the Internet use an SEO (search engine optimisation) service to identify CVs matching key words in job profiles. This is how they select from the hundreds of CVs they receive.  You need to make sure your CV contains the right key words to be included. We advise you to look at the ad content, as this will guide you in what key words to use.

  • Get organised

Searching for jobs online can take a lot of your time and may not always yield good results. It is therefore important to target your search.  Use your common sense to determine the type and number of jobs for which you apply.  Make sure you use more than one method in your job search.
