How do I prepare my resume/application for a job at Mobilinx?

Step 1:

Research our company and specific job. Find out:

  • Research our company
  • Review the requirements and responsibilities for the roles that offer the best fit.
  • What are the key qualifications and skills?

Step 2:

Prepare your resume

  • A resume is a marketing tool that sells the skills and experiences that you have in your personal portfolio. A resume should tell stories about your work experiences, educational background and career objectives.

Step 3:

Prepare a cover letter

  • A cover letter is your introduction to a potential employer. It should be concise, well written and tailored to the company and job you are applying for. Your cover letter should give the employer an idea of who you are and highlight the skills you have to offer.
  • Resumes are retained on file for one year. In the event that a similar role is posted at a later date, applicants with appropriate skills, experience and education will be contacted.

Considerations in recruitment

  • Construction Schedule: In 2021 work will include road-widening, utilities relocation, track work and landscaping

Six steps on how to prepare your resume

  1. Review resume examples from your industry and incorporate some of the sector language into your own resume.
  2. Resumes should have headers or sections that outline your career objectives, work experience, education, academic achievements and extra-curricular projects that may include your hobbies, volunteer work or special workshops or recent events you’ve attended to grow your experience.
  3. Keep your resume clean and legible, Times New Roman or Calibri size 12-point font are most used and should remain consistent throughout your resume. Employers have only a short time to review your resume so it should be as clear and easy to read. 
  4. Make sure your contact information is up to date. You wouldn’t want to miss an interview opportunity because you added the wrong phone number or email address to your resume.
  5. Highlight your top three or four most important achievements in each role you have held. You may want to consider including a separate “Achievements” or “Skills” section to highlight your accomplishments.
  6. Proofread and edit your resume. You should undergo several rounds of proofreading to ensure that there are no spelling, punctuation or grammar errors. Spellcheck is a good friend.

Nine tips on how to prepare for an interview

  1. Research the industry and company where you are going to have the interview. Be prepared to ask questions about the company and the industry when asked if you have any questions.
  2. Clarify your “selling points” and reasons why you want the job. Prepare yourself to go into the interview with three to five key selling points about what makes you the best candidate for the position.
  3. Practice makes perfect. Practice your interview to become more confident and convincing with friends, family or in front of a mirror.
  4. Download and test videoconferencing software. Ensure other devices and/or software in the household are not depleting bandwidth to avoid connectivity issues.
  5. Dress appropriately and professionally. Ensure the background is tidy and suitable.
  6. The most frequently asked question in an interview is: “Tell me about yourself”. Take what you have learned about yourself and why this job is right for you. Every bullet point on your resume should tell a story.
  7. Prepare for common interview questions. Think about what questions you are most likely to be asked. Google “Best Interview Questions,” to determine questions most likely to be asked during an interview.
  8. Send a thank you email. Your email should refer to what you and the interviewer discussed.
  9. Come with a salary expectation in mind, or at least a ballpark figure. Don’t worry about under evaluating or over-estimating your self worth. Companies typically understand the competition out there and are aware of industry typical rates and therefore will meet or exceed industry standards.
