Take time on your application, think it through. Consider using the STAR (Situation, Task, Action Result) method in both your applications and interviews as this can help set out a clear way to provide examples of what you have done and experience you have.
Research the company, know our values, our purpose, what we are doing or looking to do, this will help when writing your application and even in face to face or video interviews.
And if you do land the role …
Be open to new experiences, seek them out and ask questions!
If someone offers you an opportunity, take it! Don’t just wait for things to come to you, it is important to find opportunities. For example, someone in your team might be working on a project you are interested in, ask to get involved.
When starting your new role reach out to team members, set up calls with them and find out what they do, their experience and background. It really helps to build trust and rapport with your team. By setting up calls directly it can show your enthusiasm to get involved and be part of the team.
