INTERVIEW SUCCESS: Interview nerves can get to anyone, make sure you are prepared, calm and take time to think about the answer you are going to give. With jobs available across many of Tasmania’s best sectors,more people are looking for work, making it hard to stand out from the crowd.
Employment expert Nick Hutchinson, manager at Professional Edge Staff and Training, says there are many things you can do as a prospective employee to make sure you get your dream job.
The main areas Professional Edge see growing are tourism and hospitality, as Tasmania becomes an increasingly popular tourist and dining destination, but there are jobs to be had across many sectors, he says.
“If you’re the sort of person who makes learning a lifestyle rather than just doing training online or through an institution, but is continually learning about their job, that certainly helps.”
So how do you land the ever-important job interview?Mr Hutchinson says it’s vitalto pay careful attention to your application and tailor your resume to suit the job you are applying fo.
“As an example I might say I want you to address the selection criteria, answer these questions and send me your resume, and lots of the time people won’t read those through and follow those instructions.”
Mr Hutchinson says to practice potential interview questions with an acquaintance, rather than a family member or close friend, to get a more realistic experience of what an interview might be like.Making sure you’re a few minutes early and taking care with your appearance will boost your chances of success.
