1. Focus on your skills and how they apply to the person specification and competency questions. Use real life situations to back these up.
  2. Make it easy for the reader – format the text so that it’s easy to read.
  3. Proofread your application thoroughly – look for typos, missing words and alternative spellings.
  4. Read through their requirements thoroughly to make sure you submit the right documents.
  5. Check any other media the employer may have access to. You don’t want to submit an amazing application only to let down by your rantings on Twitter.
