“Looking for a Job is in itself a Job and must be done skillfully, one of the worst things most people do to themselves is to search unskillfully …” – Anthony Kila

A common error with job seekers or those wishing to change jobs is not to consider the needs of prospective employers. Even the most qualified candidates sometimes don’t know how to present their skills. Too many job seekers are looking for jobs in the wrong place and in the wrong way. Most people don’t even remember or bother to consider that it costs employers time and money to examine job applications and applicants.

This CIAPS Career and CV Clinic is aimed at helping participants develop efficient ways of preparing for Job Applications and Career Development.
