My Resources

Ensure your application / CV highlights your achievements in a clear yet concise manner and that any gaps are carefully explained.

  • Apply as early as you can early in the campus recruitment season (as employers usually recruit on a rolling basis).
  • Do not leave it until the last minute to apply; allow yourself time to think about how you will answer the questions.
  • Attention to detail is key throughout the application process; read over everything before submitting.
  • Be positive, prepared and punctual for any interview.
  • Think about your strengths in advance and have concrete examples to back them up.
  • If you are going to ask questions at the interview make sure they are realistic, inquisitive and interesting.
  • Interact with Candidates and Assessors at an Assessment Centre, showcasing your skills and personality.
  • Be enthusiastic and confident in your ability.
  • If you need an adjustment let the employer know in plenty of time to enable them to source and implement it.
  • It is acceptable to refer to your disability in order to demonstrate a particular competency; just ensure you don't only use disability-related examples.
