It is a hard time of year to find work, but as I do some recruitment my biggest tip is to taylor you cover letter for each job to be specifically for that job/company,addressing the person by name etc. when I get resumes where it is obvious the person has just clicked on the seek apply button, I automatically assume they arent genuine. Keep your resume brief, 2pg max, dont put your d.o.b. Where possible go into a store/pub etc and speak to the manager, always be really polite to the receptionist. Dont ever just drop your resume off, discuss with someone and make it clear you are flexible and available immediately. In person/on phone is best, dont bombard with emails. Be pushy in am enthusiastic way, not an annoying way. I hope some of these tips can help you.
