Training and Guidelines for Candidates:
We offer a few guidelines here to improve the presentation of your information, which will increase the likelihood of your application succeeding.
What to include
Please include the following in your application:
- A copy of your curriculum vitae or resume (not to exceed three pages), and
- A short application letter or personal statement that clearly indicates how your skills and experience match the criteria that the employer has indicated are essential to be a successful candidate.
Make sure that your application has the names, dates and duties of all relevant employment and self-employment.
Details of how to contact you (quickly) need to be clear and prominent in your application. Sometimes selection processes move quickly!
Layout of letters and c.v.s/resumes
Make sure that you have your name on every page in either the header or footer. It is also useful to show page numbers and, perhaps, the date.
Send your application as a Word document
Finally, please put your name as the file name - e.g. "chinmaya cv.doc" and "chinmaya covering letter.doc" - and include the reference number in the subject line of your e-mail.
Before we finally short-list candidates, we will want to talk to people who have worked with you, know your strengths and weaknesses, and can confirm your work and academic history. (Note: we will not contact referees without your prior consent.)
Often we will have done this in the process of head-hunting and talking to our contacts. However, it is useful to have the names of people (probably not your current employer) whom we can contact (most likely by telephone) at this early stage. These are the informal referees.
Should the client wish to offer you a job, we will want two or three formal referees who will give a formal written reference for you. These will need to be your present or most recent employer, people who have managed or funded major projects on which you have consulted, and/or academic referees. These are formal referees.
