Tips For Your Application

When applying for jobs or internships make sure to write a cover letter that shows you have researched what the company is about and that you have the relevant skills and experience appropriate for the job or internship you are applying for.  Here are some tips below to help with your job or internship application

Tips to Improve your CV

  1.  Put the most relevant product design experience and qualifications at the top
  2. Use bullet points to display important information
  3. Spell check and proofread your resume several times

Tips to Improve a Cover Letter

  1.  Address your cover letter to the right person
  2. Capture the reader’s attention, mention some product design interests or experience here
  3. Spell check and proofread your cover letter several times

On your cover letter and CV find a way to show that you are smart, love product design, and are constantly growing, learning, and exploring new ideas. Talk about your relevant hobbies if you have any, like contributing to open source projects, community support forums or getting involved with a local product design or innovation group on Meetup.com or similar. If a local product design or innovation group does not exist in your area then set up one and invite others to get involved.  Let your potential employer know if you like developing products and coming up with new and innovative ideas enough to deal with them outside of your work or studies.

It is a really simple formula for the employer. While two candidates may be equal today, the candidate with passion will be far more advanced in the weeks and months to come than the candidate who treats it as “just a job.”  And if you haven’t been partaking in any of these activities outside of your studies up to now, start as soon as you can and it will really develop your skills, help you to network with other like minded people and open up new opportunities that would otherwise never have been possible.

By following these tips you will be well on your way to getting noticed by employers in the hope of being called for an interview. The whole purpose of a CV and cover letter is to get an interview, so the work you put into improving your documents is well worth the effort.  Best of luck!
