When there is a vacancy in a company it is usual to advertise the position in the appointments page of a newspaper of wide circulation. As a rule in the advertisement, mention is made of the requirements for the job: qualifications, experience, skills etc. At the same time the advertisement highlights the advantages offered by the employer to the prospective employee: incentives in the form of salary, fringe benefits, private health insurance, pension schemes, relocation assistance, overseas allowance and so on.
Anyone interested in getting the job who meets the requirements can apply by sending his or her C.V. with an accompanying letter to the address of the company as shown in the advertisement. The C.V. should include personal details (surname, first name, dat
e of birth, nationality, address) and information on the applicant's background: studies, qualifications, experience, skills. It should also give some references. In the accompanying letter the applicant should also stress his/her achievements and point out that he/she is suitable for the job and even show some enthusiasm. The applicant can conclude the letter by expressing his/her hope that he/she will be given the chance of an interview to substantiate his/her claims.
It is advisable that the two mentioned documents should be presented in an attractive form: computer-edited, printed on high quality paper, with no language mistakes so as to make a favourable impression from the very outset. This is recommended because not all applicants are selected for the next stage of the recruitment process. Those who are short-listed have the chance of an interview in which they must convince the managers that they can do the best job of all who have applied.
The interviewee should arrive at appointed the time, be well dressed and do everything to impress the interviewer favourably. Most managers are interested in the candidate's character, in his/her intelligence and suitability for the position that has to be filled. Appearance also matters, as well as showing that you understand the way the company works and what is expected of you. You are given the opportunity to ask some questions and you should ask questions that prove you are in the picture with what is going on in the company.
So, good luck to everybody!
