How to use copy to get your dream job
Getting your dream job has never been easy and since lockdown, it's gotten even more challenging. What if there was an easier way to get the career you want?
Since lockdown, employees have been furloughed, or laid-off work altogether left, right and centre. Not only is it difficult to keep the jobs we had before lockdown - it is even more challenging to try and find a new job. Right now, many employers simply don’t want to hire, and those that do receive thousands of more applications than they normally would. You need a job, but you shouldn’t have to fight tooth and nail to get one. Fortunately for you, with this guide, you won’t need to.
There are several ways you can use copywriting to get your dream job - some of them are more obvious than others but by making use of all of the steps listed in this guide, you can make sure you're covered at all stages of the job-hunting process.
The first and most obvious way you can use copywriting to get your dream job is using your CV and cover letter. Use copywriting techniques to sell yourself in both of these, and you’ll be well on your way to securing that interview. Use this CV as a template and tweak it slightly for different
job roles - you’ll be rolling in job offers in no time!
A video CV is even better!
You can still use copywriting to create a script, plan and accompanying CV for your video CV. Creating this will make it that much easier for you to display your key skills and also standout during the application process.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get a job offer without even having to go through the process of job hunting and creating a CV? The good news is, you can! By creating content that displays your skills and experience, you improve your chances of an employer finding you instead of you looking for them.
But which platforms should you be posting on?
Social media is widely used for sharing details about your life and connecting with friends and family. There are only a small number of people in the world that actually use social media to make themselves more employable - and to attract their ideal employer. By sharing content to a variety of social media platforms, you can easily share who you are and what you do and ultimately allow your dream employer to find you, rather than having to search for them yourself.
LinkedIn is a rapidly growing professional social media platform. You can easily search by job role, or employer and put your name in front of them.
