Going for your dream job? These top tips will help you.

Ask at least three people to proofread your application: Recruiters say grammar and spelling errors on a cover letter or CV will hurt you.

Choose a boring e-mail address: Recruiters are put off by any e-mail address that isn’t some combination of your first and last name.

Don’t let an unrelated degree stop you from applying:
Recruiters say they wouldn’t hold having an education in a different field against you.

Send a thank you e-mail:
After your interview, it’s suggested that you send a thank-you e-mail.

Limit your follow-ups: Recruiters believe you should call or e-mail an interviewer no more than once a week to ask if you’re still in the running.
