A great CV is the best way to kick-start your application. It will enable you to stand out and make your mark before we’ve even met you. We also encourage a well crafted and convincing letter of motivation to explain why you want to work at AWP Services New Zealand Limited.
Consistent: make sure your CV is consistent with any social media sites you may use for social job searching and that the information is up to date
Relevant: when applying for a specific job, try to highlight your relevant experience for that position to show the value that you could bring
Do your research: whether for a cover letter or an interview, use the social media channels available to find out who we are, and tell us why you would be a great fit for our New Zealand based family!
Quantify your accomplishments and responsibilities: this makes your experience more tangible. For example, if you controlled a budget, include the size of the budget; if you were able to reduce costs or timeframes, give an idea of the figures
Concise: keep your CV concise and to the point, with more information about your most relevant or recent professional experience
No mistakes: proof read your CV and cover letter to ensure there are no errors.
Don’t leave gaps in your experience: if you have been out of work then think about what other information you could include to show what you have been doing: for example, courses, volunteer work or self-employment.
It’s all about image: ensure your CV looks professional and attractive with a clean layout and visual appeal. And why not get creative with your CV if you are applying for a creative role!
