Zena Everett, founder of Second Careers, said the first thing applicants need to do is make sure that their CV is correctly laid out, well spelt, and clear to understand.
It is surprising how many candidates fail to follow this advice and send in applications containing errors – something which will immediately deter potential employers.
"They will stand out by being well written, without mistakes in. Secondly, they need to make sure that their application, letter or email is really geared towards answering the requirements of the job advertisement," she advised.
Ms Everett said that applicants need to think about applying for a job from the perspective of the future employer, rather than detailing what they have done and their entire back story.
Recruiters look at the most recent experience first, so people have to say why the first job on their CV is relevant to what they're applying for, the expert advised.
