Job hunting can feel like a full-time job and figuring out the best moves to make can be confusing, especially in a new labour market. Getting a peek inside the mind of a recruiter can make this process a bit easier. So, let us help with that! In this blog series our experienced recruitment consultants share their top tips to help you succeed in your job search. Learn how to make your application stand out, impress recruiters, and move through the job application process smoothly by following the advice of our experts. This month’s tips are brought to you by our recruitment consultant from Eindhoven, Carmen Cordes.

TIP 1 - Be easily reachable

If you've submitted an application, we highly value your interest in the position. To ensure a smooth and efficient communication process, I recommend that you make yourself easily reachable via both phone and e-mail. Being readily available for any potential updates or clarifications not only demonstrates your enthusiasm but also allows us to proceed swiftly with the recruitment process.

TIP 2 - Have your English CV ready

I highly recommend submitting an English CV to enhance the efficiency of your application process. Additionally, it's important to note that some of our clients exclusively communicate in English. Your ability to provide an English CV not only expedites our internal procedures but also positions you favorably to engage seamlessly with our diverse client base.

TIP 3 - Customize your CV

I would recommend you tailor your CV to align with the requirements of the role. Make strategic adjustments to highlight experiences, skills, and accomplishments that directly resonate with the position. Customizing your CV in this manner will effectively showcase your suitability and increase your chances of being considered as an ideal candidate.
