Tailoring your CV is a very important part of applying for a job. Your CV is our first impression of you, so you need to know how to sell yourself through your CV. Here are some tips on creating a great CV:
- List your name and contact details at the top of the first page.
- Keep it brief and informative.
- Maintain a consistent style.
- Previous experience is the most important section – emphasise your achievements and show how you contributed to your employer’s business.
- Ensure you have correct spelling and grammar.

Step Three – Interviewing and Assessment
The interview process, will involve a panel of interviewers. You will be advised of who is on the panel before hand. It is important to prepare for an interview. Ensure that you know something about EIT, think about the questions you might be asked and perhaps do a mock interview with a friend. In some cases applicants may be asked to conduct a workplace test or related activity as part of the assessment process. You will be advised of this in advance.
Step Four – Reference checks
In your application you will be asked to identify referees who can comment on your suitability for the position. The manager will contact referees for the preferred applicant(s) and in some cases you may be asked for the names of additional referees.
Step Five -Offer
If you are our preferred candidate, then the manager will contact you directly to gauge your interest and discuss the key terms and conditions. If agreement is reached then Human Resources will send a formal written offer in the mail. You will be advised if you are unsuccessful after the interview.
