The job search process can seem like a grueling battle – an often frustrating cycle of filling out applications, revising your CV, writing cover or motivation letters and waiting for a response. Even if you’ve only been actively searching for a job for a few weeks, being in the job hunter mode can quickly get overwhelming.
For the most part, recruiters and hiring managers internationally are looking for the same information from your job application. They want to see, especially when it comes to first-time job seekers and entry-level positions, that you’re ready and willing to work — and that you’ve taken the time to make sure that that your application is clear and free from errors.
Looking for a job is stressful. From completing applications to surviving interviews, the job search experience alternates between repetitive and nerve-wracking. When you hear “no” time after time, it is easy to lose self-confidence. Of course, the less confident you feel, the less likely your next interview will go well.
