Quick Candidate Tips

Our website team is always on the look out for candidate trends. We’ve spotted some mistakes being made by candidates. Here is a list of our Top 3!

  1. Helpful TipsIncluding a Cover Letter in the same document as your Resume:
    Remember that our Application Process has a separate Cover Letter feature. If you upload a Resume that includes a Cover Letter already when you apply the Employer will get two Cover Letters.
  2. Not editing the Cover Letter in the Application Form:
    Our system generates a simple Cover Letter by default. Some candidates may not be aware that it can be edited. Simply click on the text to create your unique Cover Letter that sets you apart from other applicants.
  3. Forgetting to Approve New Resumes when using the Add A Resume feature:
    Remember! After you Upload A Resume or Create One you navigate to a screen that gives you the option to Submit Resume or Edit Resume. Click Submit Resume to approve the resume. You should always check that the new resume has been added by visiting your Candidate Dashboard afterwards.

Remember you can always email our support team at info@barbadoscareers.com.
