tips before you apply

We’ve put together a few tips to help you get it right first time.  If you have any other questions check out our FAQ page, or get in touch at sujobs@essex.ac.uk

 

  • Read the job description all the way through before you start your application - it tells you exactly what we're  looking for.
  • Explain how you meet each of the criteria in the job description - give examples.
  • Don’t just tell us about the jobs you have had.  We are interested in you, so tell us about all the skills and experience you have, wherever you got them from.
  • We’re interested in more than your academic record, so tell us about informal training you’ve done as well as your qualifications.
  • Take your time.  It’s not always easy to get your message across on paper, so make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to complete a really good application
  • Check and double check what you have written, or  get someone else to check it for you.  An application full of typing mistakes probably won’t make a great first impression.
  • If you really want the job, let us know!
