OUR APPLICATION TIPS
READ THE JOB DESCRIPTION
Before applying, make sure you fulfil the basic qualification criteria and that the role reflects your own skills and capabilities.
PERSONALISE YOUR APPLICATION
Tailor your CV to SRLV and the job description to emphasise your relevant strengths and transferable skills. Remember that we also value soft skills, alongside academic achievements.
DON’T RUSH IT
The application form is your chance to make a great first impression so take time to craft answers that stand out. Lastly, don’t forget to proof-read your application and run spelling and grammar checks.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Read our website, research the industries we work in and make sure you understand our specialisms and approach to client service. Our staff have plenty of insights to share in their intern and graduate website case studies so be sure to read these too.
SHOW THAT YOU’RE KEEN
We want to see that you’ve understood the role, who we are as a firm and that you’re genuinely interested in SRLV.
OUR FINAL INTERVIEW TIPS
We’re on your side and want you to have the best possible interview so it makes our decisions more difficult! Previous recruits have described their interviews as nice experiences and say that SRLV comes across as a friendly company to work for, so you can feel at ease.
Whilst we look for confidence and knowledge, we also want to get to know you as a person. Tell us about your interests and don’t be afraid to be confident and express an opinion.
PRACTICE YOUR PRESENTATION
Take time before you come to rehearse – it makes all the difference. Demonstrating good communication skills is important so whilst you’re welcome to bring presentation notes, you should avoid reading from a script.
The interviews are an opportunity for you to learn about us too. Think about what you want from your career and have questions prepared to ask us that will help you decide if we’re the right fit for you.
BE WELL PRESENTED
Whilst we have a relaxed company culture, it will create a good impression if you dress smartly for your interview. Also, don’t forget that we do our own research in terms of LinkedIn or other social media profiles you have, so make sure these are professionally presented and up to date.
