Key Recruitment's software developers are at the leading edge of IT practices. We specialise in providing a boutique service and can deliver exceptional people for your business' evolving IT requirements.
WORK ON YOUR SOFT SKILLS
People working in IT often forget about the need for soft skills such as working in teams, flexibility, adaptability, leadership, and communication. However, they can be one of the most important parts of landing a great job in IT. You can practice your technical skills and improve your programming knowledge, but if you can’t work as part of a team or think outside the box, you won't necessarily stand out from the 10 other coders that the recruiter is sifting through. Spend time practising for your interviews. Identify weaknesses in your soft skills and work on improving them.
DEMONSTRATE YOUR PASSION FOR I.T.
Do you live and breath code? A recruiter will be keen to see that you have a side project or website of your own, whether you’re currently looking for a job, in a job or freelancing. Not only do your own development projects show your true passions, they help you upskill in your spare time.
Key Recruitment's communications professionals boast modern skills across a range of platforms. Once again, we specialise in providing a boutique service and can deliver exceptional people for small projects in government and the private sector.
DATA RULES - CAN YOU DEMONSTRATE RESULTS?
Writing and communicating effectively is more challenging that one thinks. Almost everyone thinks they can write and be a communicator. If your desire is to forge a successful career in communications, make sure you have both multichannel writing samples and return on investment (ROI) — open rates, click-through rates, campaign results, impressions, engagement, change in behaviour, and so on. Like many jobs, data rules in a modern communications profession so it's important to prove you have what it takes.
CREATIVITY IN COMMUNICATIONS
Communications is often all about being creative and finding new ways to get your message to resonate with an audience. It can be daunting, but go with your gut instinct and test different styles. Having the confidence and courage to attempt something new and different isn’t always easy, but we all communicate differently. Embrace your inner creativity and learn from it — that’s what marketing and communications are all about.
