Hiring/Application Tips



Make a good impression on us You never get a second chance to make a first impression. This is especially true for your application – in other words, this is your opportunity to give us a clear, concise picture of your skills, interests, and character. It is easy when you follow a few straightforward rules of thumb:

  • 1.   Make sure your application file is complete. A proper application always includes:
    • a cover letter
    • a résumé
    • all the certificates relevant to your profession
  • 2.   In your cover letter, tell us a little about yourself and why you are applying:
    • What job are you applying for?
    • Why does this particular job interest you?
    • What expectations do you have of the new job?
    • What makes you the right person for this position?
  • 3.   Your up-to-date résumé should:
    • be written as a list (no paragraphs, please!) and
    • list your most recent position first.
  • 4.   Adhere to accepted standards:
    • Check every single character you type for formatting and spelling mistakes.
    • Clearly structure your application and make sure it’s easy to read.
    • Adhere to today’s “rules” of written correspondence (like paragraphs, line spacing, and font size).
    • For online and email applications, only attach files that everyday computers can handle and open. Before sending your application, convert your Word documents into one PDF file no larger than 4 MB. This guarantees that your application will make it through our system.
  • 5.   Put yourself in a good light:
    • List related hobbies and personal interests in your résumé.
    • Write your cover letter in a way that makes us want to learn more about you.
    • Tell us what makes your professional contribution different.
