Make sure your dream job is achievable

Making sure that you have the relevant qualifications or skills necessary for your dream job is key. In many areas, you will be unable to progress without specific credentials, so find out what you need and hit the books!
Dress to impress at interview
The care you take in looking after your appearance can say a lot about your approach to work; tidily dressed, tidy in the workplace.
Whether this is about the job role itself or a company that you’re interested in working for: knowing the details and proving that you fit the bill is essential in any interview.
Ask yourself “Why do I want this job?”
If the answer is "the money" or "it seems easy" – then you need to think again. It is imperative to find something you’re interested in for the right reasons; and if it pays well too then that’s a bonus!
