When applying for a new role, completing job application forms can often be more of a challenge than writing your CV.
There can be limited space on the form; you may not know the best answer to write for a given question; the questions may not be asked in a way that brings the best out of your experience and skills; there may not be any means of formatting or setting out your responses in a way that catches the eye.
However, just like writing a CV or succeeding at interview, how you sell yourself is really key to making your application form stand out and succeed at securing you an interview. Standard application forms often don’t make it easy for you to impress the reader.
Utilising the skills of healthcare specialist CV writers to complete your form will give your application the edge.
Common issues applicants have when completing an application form:
- Not taking application forms as seriously as writing their CV.
- Copying and pasting chunks from their CV or covering letter instead of ensuring the application is specific.
- Not thinking about the application from the hiring manager’s point of view and considering what they want to see.
- Not understanding the question being asked and what the employer is looking for in the answer.
- Not being able to format the text in a way that makes it stand out from other applications. In today’s competitive recruitment markets, job adverts often receive hundreds of applications. Considering that the hiring manager will perhaps only interview around 10% of those who have applied for the role, then your application really needs to stand out.
Our Application form completion service will ensure that your application is:
- Accurate and specific to the question asked.
- Written in the best way to sell your strengths and skills for each question.
- Composed to make life easy for the recruiter reviewing the applications.
- Structured in a way that makes your application stand out from the rest (even if the application form allows for no formatting!)
