It’s important to research the organisation to which you are applying before you finalise your resume. Ask yourself why you want to work for them. What aspects of the role appeal to you? Why do you think you are a good fit? This will help you to complete your resume in a way that is compelling.
  3. Do you have a LinkedIn profile? LinkedIn can get you noticed and connect you with a network of professionals, job opportunities, articles and blogs. You may be able to see who is currently working for the organisation who you are applying with, and connect with them in advance for information or for a reference.
