Applying for a Role: Computer, Mobile or Tablet?
You don’t want to lose out on a role just because you are out and about or on the move. Sometimes the choice is between having the time to sit down with your device-of-choice and consider your recruitment plan at home or take the exciting step of submitting your interest, remotely. What do you consider your best method of showing interest in a role? Is it something you only do from your computer, or do you sometimes diversify by submitting applications via your Mobile and Tablet?
Applying From a Desktop Computer: Better Timings
Applying from a computer allows a chance for more time and mindfulness in showcasing your personal brand.
It offers a critical opportunity to adapt your CV, to make your cover letter more appealing and to give yourself a chance to reflect on your qualities (and the specifications of the position). It is a method which can give you time for critically adapting your CV or cleverly re-calibrating your Cover Letter.
When you are using a well-structured CV for a long time, you may be used to its size, shape and functionality. With this in mind, you can quickly edit certain parts and make it all stand out when a job spec requires it. This is a pivotal advantage of the desktop approach!
Applying From An App: Quicker Submission
It is a very different application process when applying from your Mobile Browser or a Recruitment App, but it is one which can reap great rewards.
This route offers instantaneous submission, allowing Recruiters and Hiring Managers the chance to view your application sooner than if you applied from your home base.
It has been a game-changer in every market, connections are being made more quickly and candidates are considered at a greater pace. It is very important to structure and plan this approach carefully.
You should have an up-to-date and reliable CV stored on your device, this will show that you are serious in showcasing yourself for an opportunity. You have simply just taken a more mobile route!
It is important to remember that your Cover Letter Content may be slightly different in this format, so fine-tune your mobile typing skills and make your submissions shorter, concise and to the point.
Applying With Your Personal Brand
Regardless of how you apply, you are submitting the story of your life and your experiences. Remember that your personal details and personal brand are being sent in, whether from a desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.
Treat your brand with a high level of importance.
It is serious business, so approach your recruitment plan in the right way. It will help you grow, develop and, ultimately, gain that perfect role.
