How to write a cover letter: 6 easy steps

By Blog, Job Seeker

A cover letter can make or break your job application. It’s a way of introducing yourself and explaining your resume in response to a job brief. In short: this is your chance to tell an employer why your skills are the ones they need for the job.

Here are our tips to help you write a cover letter with impact:

Tip 1) Tailor it each time

What your email inbox says about you

By Blog, Tips and Advice

There are two types of people in this world: those with hundreds of unread messages in their inbox, and those who can’t relax until that pesky little notification icon is gone. So, what does your email management say about you?

What is a work personality?

By Blog, Job Seeker

If you can’t decide what you want to do for a job, try determining your work personality type. It will help narrow down what sort of work suits your strengths, to give you the best chance of success.

How does a personality test work?

A personality test gathers information about your character traits, decision-making methods, behaviour and attitudes, and it uses the information to categorise you into a particular type. There are a number of free online personality tests  and the most popular and longest-standing is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). It looks at:

  • An individual’s interaction with the world (Introvert/Extrovert)
  • The way you absorb information (Sensing/Intuitive)
  • Your decision-making tendencies (Thinkers/Feelers)
  • How you organise yourself (Judgers/Perceivers)

Depending on the outcome of the test, you will be categorised into one of 16 possible personality types. From there, you’ll know what sort of job suits you best, based on the demands of typical roles. For instance, an ISTP (introvert, sensor, thinker, perceiver) personality is a hard worker who values their responsibilities and commitments, and feels comfortable in roles such as civil engineer, economist or police officer.

Here are a few jobs suited to Myers-Briggs personality types:

When you’re taking a personality test, just be yourself. Many of these tests identify inconsistent answers so it’s best to answer honestly.
