Get your CV in order

If one of your new year’s resolutions was to give your career a boost, then you’ve probably spent the past month searching and applying for new jobs. While this is exciting to start with, if you’re not getting the response you’d hoped for it can start to feel a little disheartening.

The problem could simply be your CV, and the good news is that this can be a pretty easy fix! The job market can be competitive, and you never know how many others might apply for the same role, so every time you send off your CV it has to stand out on your behalf.

Here at the Lotus Dental School, we always suggest tailoring your CV to the role you’re applying for. Read the description to work out exactly what the employer is looking for, and then highlight any skills or experience you have that are particularly relevant. Do this for each role you apply for, they’ll all be slightly different so be sure to tweak accordingly.

How long is your CV? Although there is no set rule on length, some say that two sides of A4 is optimum because employers don’t have the time to read through reams and reams for each applicant. Keep it short, sweet and to the point.

Last but not least, make sure it’s up to date! This might sound obvious, but many people forget to include their most recent employment or latest skills on their CV. Don’t just dig out your old one and send it off, give it some love, attention, and a dash of sparkle!

If you find you’re reaching interview stage and not getting any further, then the great news is that your CV is probably on point! What you need is some top interview tips, so keep your eyes peeled for the next newsletter…

Make better use of your time

We’re all time poor these days, aren’t we. How often do you catch yourself thinking or saying ‘I just don’t have the time to do that/meet up with her/start that task’? We’re all guilty of it, but are we really as busy as we think we are, or are we using our time inefficiently?

How much of your day is spent looking at social media sites? If you timed it, you’d probably be surprised. The same goes for internet shopping, watching television, and other menial things like ironing the bed sheets (who even does that?). While it doesn’t seem like much while you’re doing it, all of this time, when accrued, could be used for things that could enrich your life even more.

We’re not saying don’t go on Facebook – it’s a great way to keep up to date with loved ones – perhaps just restrict yourself to an hour during the course of the day, and see how much more you get done, at work, on your lunch break, and in the evenings.

All of this extra time could be used to read more books, take up a new hobby, go to the gym, phone or visit a friend, start your own blog… the list is endless! Put down the iron and go out and enjoy your life, it’s too short to worry about wrinkled bed sheets!
