  1. Ensure your skills match is really evident and concisely stated on your CV under headings of Responsibilities and Achievements for each recent role.

  3. Are you ready for answering competency based questions as part of the process?
  4. Research the company and people working there and how you believe you would fit the company culture well.
  5. Make sure you are easily contactable for the recipient of your application to respond.
