Update your resume
There is no doubt that if you want to find all the available jobs in Cyprus, at any given time, Ergodotisi.com is the page to visit daily. Apart from that, I need to remind you that Cyprus is a really small country and who you know plays an important role in some of the cases. A referral can prove to be much more powerful than the greatest CV ever made. Use LinkedIn to spot the right people (or the employee’s personal blog), amaze them and get a ticket-to-interview. Think about it. A person working in the company knows exactly what the position requires, and by referring you it means that you hold all the skills. Besides, it is a sign of respect towards that employee to get you invited for an interview. Any HR Manager will confirm that.
Too trendy, too outdated, too provocative, too safe. The truth is, the best dress code is the one that gets unnoticed. Of course you can always conduct research on social media in order to see what the dress code of the company is, and dress like you already work there.
Watch your Body Language
Ignore Some of the Tips You Already Know
- If you get asked about your previous salaries, you don’t have to answer.
- You can always ask for an offer and negotiate on that basis.
- Don’t waste your interview time explaining why you really want the job.
- Use insightful questions instead, try to get a picture of the position and see what isn’t working.
- Don’t write a book and name it a cover letter.
- Cover letters should be half a page, maximum three quarters. Don’t reference what is already in your resume. Instead, try to have a ‘wow’ factor in the first two or three lines.
