• • • •

It is a good idea to include a career objective at the start of your CV, but keep it concise. Ensure that your objective is relevant to the company and includes some detail about your career aspirations, as well as the discipline and industry sector you are looking to specialise in While we may read your CV first, a great cover letter, tailored to the company and position you’re applying for, is critical. A cover letter which stands out can demonstrate your writing ability, personality, the research you have done on the company and the role, and gives the recruiter another reason to move you further along in the recruitment process This cadetship is an iwi partnership so be sure to include information about your involvement with your iwi and Māori culture Don’t include a photo of yourself in your CV or cover letter Spell check all of your documentation before submitting Be careful of what your social media pages say about you and, where relevant, check your privacy settings
