How can you get a lot more interviews and find a job far more quickly?

We've looked at both the advantages and disadvantages of advertised job vacancies. So how can you get more interviews and what else should you be doing if you want to land a job faster?

  1. Plan your job search campaign carefully, don't leave things to chance. Decide on which methods and strategies to use and then take action.
  2. Don't just focus all your efforts on applying for advertised job vacancies, because you'll face a lot of competition.
  3. Consider other methods of finding a job, such as recruitment agencies, speculative applications direct to employers, networking, etc - we'll cover these in future blog posts.
  4. If you do apply for advertised job vacancies, remember to send a cover letter (if they allow you to), as it will make you stand out more - a lot of applicants don't, which makes it far easier to reject them.
  5. Make sure that you send a great CV and cover letter, a weak CV / cover letter will stand little or no chance and is easy to reject.
  6. Spend extra time on your CV / cover letter - most applicants just send exactly the same CV for each job application, so you can increase your chances if you get your pitch right.
  7. Focus on your experience, skills, results and achievements that are relevant to the job you're applying for.
  8. Tailor your CV and cover letter to each specific job vacancy - done correctly this can make you stand out compared to all the other applicants.
  9. Make it sound like you really want the job, but don't sound desperate, as this can be very off-putting.
  10. Tell them how you can make a difference if they hire you, but be specific about what you can do, don't use generalities, platitudes or be patronising.
