Be strategic in approachQuality over quantity is always more effective than a ‘scatter gun’ approach. Do some research before you apply to a role to find out what skills are in demand in your chosen industry; this will enable you to check beforehand if your experience and CV can match any of these gaps and give you a higher chance of success.
Being strategic also means finding a workplace that fits with your values, something you ultimately have the power over. Doing this research beforehand can mean that your passions will come across during the interview, enabling the employer to sense you’ll be a good fit for the team. You can get a good idea of a company’s culture by looking at their ‘work for us’ section online or reading news stories.
