Don’t let potential employers switch off when reading your CV
With so much competition for top jobs in heating, ventilation and air conditioning, you’ll want to make sure the employer has a good reason to stop and read your application.
The quickest way to catch their attention is in your brief profile statement at the top of the document. Avoid general phrases that could apply to anyone such as “highly motivated self starter” and highlight key qualities as specifically as possible.
For candidates applying through Thornhvac, part of our role is to do the hard work for the employer and sift through the applications carefully. If you have seen a job on our website and are interested in applying, make sure you include key information that relates specifically to the job description so that we can see immediately that you have the relevant experience for the role.
Most employers are inundated with applicants for every job and they aren’t mind-readers so don’t be afraid to state the obvious while keeping your CV concise and to-the-point.
It may sound obvious but your CV should say who you are, your skills (and relevant air conditioning and HVAC experience) and why you’re the best person for the job.
Tailor your CV to each specific job you apply for – it is vital to ensure the script is relevant to each job application, rather than sending the same generic CV.
