Tips

Your CV is the most important document you will present to the company, as it is the basis for the very first impression you present to them.

  • The aim is to keep your CV as simple and concise as possible, ensuring that you include all relevant information.
  • Align the information on your CV to the actual position you are applying for.
  • Make sure that you highlight your strengths in relation to the position so that we are made aware that you have the skills and competencies that we are looking for.

Preparing for your interview

Your CV is the most important document you will present to the company, as it is the basis for the very first impression you present to them.

  • Make sure that you arrive on time, or better yet 15 minutes earlier to make sure that you are cool, calm and collected by the time your interview is ready to begin.
  • Make sure you prepare for your interview – it's no use making it this far and then blowing your chances because you don't know anything about the position – how else will you convince them that you are the best person to do the job?

Do your research

  • Find out absolutely anything you can about the company and impress your panel with how much you know about Direct Axis!
  • You are bound to be nervous and excited in your interview so make sure you stay in control of the situation by being prepared for ANY questions. The more you prepare, the harder it will be for you to make mistakes in your interview.
  • A trickier way to get a little extra information about the company is to call them on the phone and ask general questions, without referring to yourself as a potential employee. It's a nice way to get the goods on upcoming promotions etc.
  • Remember, during an interview, you are a salesman. You are there to sell yourself to your prospective employer.A salesman that is knowledgeable, friendly and positive always gets the close.
