Tips

  • Ask yourself: does your CV demonstrate that you have excellent communication skills? Arguably the most important aspect of this role is communicating with a variety of different people through several of different communications channels (online, face-to-face or through email). It is your job to reassure the prospective employer looking through your CV that you possess this vital attribute for the job and that you are a “people person” – refer to the CV example above to see how you can achieve this.
  • The first impression is vital for securing any job, but this is especially the case for this position since you will be entrusted with interacting, conveying, publishing and speaking on behalf of the company to a variety of internal and external stakeholders through different mediums and channels. There is little tolerance for embarrassing the company or putting it into a negative light, and therefore the prospective employers will always ask themselves at any interaction: “Is this the articulate, professional and loyal candidate that I am looking for?” Tip: Ensure that you are professional and considerate at all times when dealing with the prospective employer!

Good Luck!
