Applicant: How to write an ad

Writing a successful ad: Top Tips

Your ad is one of the first things an Employer will read on your profile, and is your first opportunity to present yourself and skills in the best possible way.

So what sort of thing should you include in your ad? Here are some of the things you could add (please note this list is just advice, feel free to add extra information or exclude certain things according to your needs)

  1. Introduce yourself: who are you and how old are you
  2. A little bit about yourself: what are your hobbies, passions or interests? Are you a student? What do you currently do?
  3. Your ideal job: What job role are you interested in? What responsibilities are you comfortable with?
  4. Your past experience: Have you had a role in childcare, tutoring, pet-sitting, elderly care or tutoring before?
  5. Home care: What is it you most like about a job in childcare, tutoring, pet-sitting, elderly care or tutoring?
  6. Special skills worth mentioning!

An ad should be a minimum of 30 characters. Whilst there is no need to go in to extensive detail for pages and pages, writing a detailed paragraph about yourself will highlight to Employers you are serious and professional.

Remember to keep your tone positive and to double check grammar and spelling once you've finished!
