H like hobbies
It is better if you call your hobbies "personal interests". Only state your hobbies if you fit in with the job. Applying for an editorial can be quite relevant if you have a blog.
Sport is usually good, as long as it is not too extreme. Sports such as skiing, soccer or climbing have a high risk of injury and this has a detrimental effect on potential employers. Go jogging or swimming, even if that is not quite true.
I as an initiative
The unsolicited application offers many opportunities as well as pitfalls. The clear advantage of the unsolicited application lies in the lack of competition. Hundreds of competitors usually apply to a job advertisement, while competitors can hardly be expected to submit an unsolicited application.
Unfortunately, it is not easy to research which positions in a company will be filled soon. Unsolicited applications are often spongy and inaccurate. But here lies the crux: unsolicited applications may not be too general. Inform yourself in advance about the company structure. You should be in the Casting at least name the department in which you want to work.
J like Jobbörsen
There are many job exchanges. With the large number of offers, it is important to get to know what you are looking for and choose the right job. in the selection helps eg the Crosspro-Research-User Survey, in which jobseekers in a long-term test evaluate job exchanges and job search machines according to different criteria.
In most job markets, you can not only search for jobs, but also job searches, create a profile, upload documents, or create search jobs.
K as competencies
In the cover letter, state your personal competences. But do not write lists: I'm a team player, orderly, friendly and reliable. Nobody believes you. It is important to prove competences. Instead of "I am a team player", you prefer to write: "I am currently working in a team of seven people."
L like gaps in the CV
Do not leave any gaps in your CV. Everything is better than a gap. If you have looked after your young children, write it quietly in your CV and name it family management. Even languageCourses or other training courses can fill gaps.
If you have not worked for a long time, then you should be prepared to be asked for it in the interview. In creative industries there is also the possibility of a especially creative resume attracting attention.
M like portfolio
A written application belongs in a suitable folder. But beware, read the job ad exactly! Mostly the ad describes how to apply. Authorities usually want a classic portfolio, while the private sector offers a job application eMail prefers.
From time to time you can also find job advertisements that do not specifically wish to have a folder, but only stapled sheets or explicit online applications. Whatever the wishes, the employer, you should stick to it.
O how outfit or what do I prefer to talk about?
Here, as with the photo term, you attract what is common in the industry. As an educator, you do not wear a business costume. As a banker, you do not appear in jeans.
