here are our top tips on how to land a job with your dream employer:
assess what skills/attributes your preferred employer brand regards highly in a potential candidate
Each company is different and will have its core values.
For example, one top employer might favour candidates with a thirst for knowledge, while another may look for more creative, forward-thinking types.
Peruse the company website, or search for their mission statement to find the type of culture that fits your dream employer is looking for.
work on your brand
Job seekers with a distinct personal brand stand out from the crowd when applying for roles with the top employer brands in Australia.
So it’s essential to work on how you are perceived both online and offline - from your clothes, to your resume, to the social networks you are on.
Make sure the message you are showing matches your brand's ethos.
leverage social media
Strategically speaking, social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and in particular LinkedIn can be excellent tools to display your online resume, and network with like-minded industry professionals.
develop great communication skills
No matter what you do or where you work, you will always need to have communication skills, and developing your own strong communication skills will work in your favour when applying for roles at your employer of choice.
By honing your written communication skills you will be able to convey in your cover letter exactly why you want to work for this specific organisation, and when you go to the interview, your verbal communication skills will help you to further emphasise your passion for the business.
As you can imagine, the top employers in Australia are in high demand, so it’s important to do whatever it takes to grab attention and show your employer of choice just how much you want to work there.
Consider creating a video cover letter or converting your resume into an infographic.
No matter which employer you want to work for, it’s important to stay ahead of the game – with the tips above you should be landing your dream job in no time!
