Ensure you have an online presence – most people use LinkedIn and it is an essential tool in todays job market. Ensure your profile is professional and you use your network.

5) Be organised
Make a spreadsheet and track your applications so you can push them along and remember everything you have applied for.

If you are asked, tell me about yourself? Have a standard answer that summarises all your experience in a concise and interesting way. Don’t fall into the trap of talking for 15 minutes and losing your audience. Know how to convey your skills and attributes effectively.

This may sound strange but do you 100% know your best skills, do you understand where you add value in a business. How would you current boss describe you. Knowing your true value to a business and how to convey this to an interviewer is key.
