Like anything in life, there are no guarantees but there are actions you can take to give yourself the best possible chance of achieving your employment goal.

  1. Establish realistic goals and collaborate with your CPO to implement strategies to ensure your progression. Ask your CPO what actions you should be taking.
  2. Communicate openly and promptly with your CPO to ensure that matches are accurate and are submitted on time to the relevant agency. You will usually only have two or three days to respond to role match.
  3. Tailor your resume to each individual application you apply for. INS understands that due to work responsibilities this may not always be possible but this would drastically increase your chance of obtaining an interview.
  4. Participate in a role-specific mock interview before attending an interview. It will greatly increase your chances in being successful in the interview. Ask your CPO if they can arrange this for you. Even if you’re confident, practice makes perfect.
