I’ve got a bit of news which I am pretty excited about, I now work for Apple from home! The job title is At Home Advisor – College Programme. So it’s 20 hours a week during semesters and 40 hours a week out of college. I prepared like a crazy women to get this job and it worked! I thought it would share my tips with you guys on what I did to get it in the bag.
Writing a cover letter is extremely important because it’s one of the first things your employer will look at and also not everyone writes one so give yourself an advantage from the get go. It’s also the first impression you give your employer so make it a strong one. When writing your cover letter read through the job description throughly and write down all the key points they are looking for so you can emphasise on them.
Research the company / business. When they were founded, who are important people in the company, what are their goals, know all their products. Write down all the answers or even better, record yourself answering all these questions on to your phone so you can listen back to them, I find this the most successful method as you can do it on the go, when your getting ready, cooking or travelling etc. Nothing worse than being asked something about the company you wish to join and you have no clue what their basic facts are!
Whatever job you are applying for, there are always questions you can prepare in advance for your interview. Such as questions about yourself, your background, why you are perfect for the job, what you love about the company, experience you have in the field etc. again record yourself answering these questions so they stick!
Interviewers will nearly always ask you scenario questions depending on the job, but make sure you have a few revised that you can adapt if needs be.
Glassdoor is a fantastic website where people share their stories about their interviews for specific jobs and some of the questions they got asked, so you can look up the job you are applying for in advance and see if anyone has shared anything about them to help you out and give you an idea of what kind of questions to expect.
I hope this post helped somewhat! Let me know what you think or if you have any other tips let me know!
