Hi I’m Aimee Bateman, recruiter, careers coach and founder of Careercake.com. In this video, I’m going to talk to you about how to “Successfully Complete an Application Form”. I’ve been in the recruitment game for 15 years and I know people often dread application forms. Can’t I just send my CV…nope you have to fill in this lengthy document. But don’t worry!! I know the job market is competitive, and you need to make your application form stand out. That might be a little bit worrying at the moment but the best applications are those that concisely and clearly bring to light your experiences within the context of the role you are actually going to apply for. This will certainly grab the readers’ attention and will make them want to meet you and find out more.
This course will show you how to showcase your value to recruiters plus it will increase your confidence in your approach to filling in this form. I will show you what to expect, taking you through each section, I will give you a model that will help you to produce a winning personal statement, I will give you tips on proofreading and take you through the necessities of a great covering letter that you might want to add.
Like I said, I know this can be daunting and spending hours filling in application forms isn’t fun. Employers know this. It’s easier to just send your CV in right? They know this. Filling in an application form well, takes time and effort and there will often be fewer people who are prepared to go to that length to apply for a job. Use that to your advantage. Show them how committed you are and how much you really want it. So, let’s get started.
