+ Finding The Perfect Role
4 lectures 19:11

In this video I give an overview of my career journey. From starting in politics, transitioning to media and now working in marketing - I've worked across multiple industries in a short amount of time. Each time I changed industries, or took a step up the career ladder, I've had to go through the recruitment process. And although my employers have greatly varied, what never changed was what caught a recruiters eye. In this Udemy course I outline the fail safe techniques to help you stand out, as well as how to nail the basics, ensuring that you're a stand out candidate and helping you to land your dream job.

In lecture 2 we cover how to make a company hit list, and why it is so important. When looking for a new job often the hardest part is knowing where to start. This video is all about giving you a clear list of companies that you can target using the techniques you'll learn later in this course.

Much like creating a company hit list, it's also really important to understand what the 'dream job' looks like to you. This step will help you prioritise roles so that you can focus your efforts on the postions that will best suit your needs.

In section 2 we start to focus on the recruitment process and how to create the perfect application. Lecture 5 will give you the fundamentals you will need to have in place before you send off your resume and cover letter. From how long you should wait before applying for a newly advertised role, and the mandatory step you must take before writing any application - this video will get you set up and ready to ace the recruitment process. 

The Basics
05:55

Lecture 6 is all about the resume. It is almost impossible to find any good references for a resume, which makes it incredibly hard to write a good one. This lecture gives you all the 'must haves' in a resume, how to lay it out and some extra things you might like to include in order to give it a personalised touch. 

Writing A Resume

A cover letter can usually make or break an application. It's the first thing recruiters see, making it incredibly important to master. In lecture 7 you'll learn everything there is to know about cover letters. Including how to correctly address and sign off a cover letter, what each paragraph should say, and how to make it different from your resume.

Writing A Cover Letter
04:36

Ever wondered how to stand out to a recruiter? Are you applying for roles where you know you can ace the position, but the role description is asking for a more experienced candidate? All too often people thing the standard resume and cover letter is enough to capture a recruiters attention - and often it's not. This lecture is all about giving you a series of easy, tangible tips that will make your application stand out. 

Tips and Tricks To Stand Out

In this lecture I take you through a mandatory step you must take whenever applying for a role - using LinkedIn. I'll talk you through how to use the world's largest professional networking website, and why it is incredibly valuable to anyone looking to get a new job. This is a step that will see your chances of getting an interview sky rocket.

Using LinkedIn Effectively

This is a quick video to summarise what can often be a lengthy period - the wait! I'll give you an overview of how long you can expect to wait before you hear from a recruiter, and what to do if the wait is getting a bit too long.

The Wait

+ The Interviews And The Offer
4 lectures 23:35

Ever dismissed a phone interview as insignificant? Or perhaps you've done no preparation for one and made it up as you went along? Well this video is for you. I'll explain why phone interviews are so important and how to prepare to make sure you ace it. Phone interviews can be hard to master, but with my tips you'll have the ability to shine over the phone and land the in person interview. 

Mastering The Phone Interview

The in person interview is quite possibly the most daunting stage of the recruitment process. I'll talk you through what you can expect, and how to prepare. After going to a few different in person interviews with different recruiters, you tend to notice some trends/similarities that will help you better anticipate questions and deliver flawless answers. Instead of you having to build up this experience and knowledge on your own I'll give you a run down on everything I've learnt so you can nail it the first time. 

Mastering The In Person Interview
06:42

Getting an offer at the end of the recruitment process is an incredibly exciting time. But it is also the most important. It can be easy to get swept away by the lure of a new role and forget to play it cool and make sure you're 100% happy before signing the dotted line. I'll talk you through the offer phone call, how to negotiate salary, and when you should officially sign the contract.

The Offer
06:47

After going through the best part of the recruitment process, you'll quickly have to go through the worst - resigning. Resigning can often be an emotional/scary/daunting process. But getting it right is incredibly important. Even if you never see yourself returning to your current employer, making sure you don't burn bridges right at the end is super important. I'll give you the step by step break down on how to break the news and make sure you do it in a professional way that will make the process as smooth as possible.
