Tips for Applicants
We would like to see graduates succeed, regardless whether with PTS or other firms. Accordingly, graduates should keep the following tips in mind during the application process of their career search:
- Your CV is a professional document that reflects the quality of your work, in addition to your experience. It should be free from spelling and grammatical errors, and use thoughtful formatting to highlight your major experiences.
- Your cover letter should show careful consideration of the prompts and demonstrate your written communication skills. Like your CV, it should be treated as a professional document. There should be no errors, and writing should be focused and concise.
- Interviews are an opportunity to make an impression and illustrate how you conduct yourself. Be sure to attend the interview in appropriate business attire and observe local customs and manners.
- Prepare for interviews! Applicants should learn as much about firms to which they apply, and be prepared to speak about how their skills fit into the organisation. As such, applicants to PTS should familiarise themselves with our service offerings, read case studies of previous work and have an understanding of our clients and market sectors. Furthermore, applicants should review their skills in advance and develop talking points around how their skills fit with the business.
