How to Match Your Resume to the Job You Want

Thinking of switching professions?

Trying to break into a new field?

Are you a recent graduate looking for work?

Each job application is unique and may ask for different qualifications and experience based on the employer’s needs. It is important to read the job description before sending in your application. From the job description, you can use keywords to streamline your cover letter and resume to the job position. Matching up roles and skill set lets the hiring manager notice that your application is worth reviewing.

Below is a guide to help you with this process:Job_ad_alignment_infographic

New Feature: Re-Submit Your Application


We’ve all been there. Sometimes we double and triple check our application before we hit the ‘Send’ button, only to notice a spelling mistake a minute after. Usually on other online job websites, once an application is submitted, it’s difficult to re-apply to the same job position since the system has already marked your application as previously successful.

JobsTT sought to rectify this issue by allowing our job seekers to delete their applications on BOTH ends. Our website is now updated to withdraw your application from the employer’s Jobstt’s inbox, once removed from the job seekeer’s account.

So rest assured that now you can delete and re-submit your application without a hassle using Jobstt.com!

See here for a tutorial on how to apply via JobsTT!

How to Increase Your Qualifications

adult_studyIf you have been on the job hunt for a while, you will notice that having three (3) CXC/CSEC passes is no longer sufficient to land an entry level job in Trinidad and Tobago. Most employers are seeking five (5) or more passes for their entry level positions.

Since this is the case, job seekers have to consider entering back into school to earn and increase their qualifications. It’s not always easy between work and home life, but if you can create the time and supply the effort, having just two (2) more passes can increase the likelihood of landing the ob position of your dreams – not to mention upgrading you into a better salary bracket!

Brand Yourself Using Social Media

In the digital age, a person’s character and skills are quickly judged by their online presence before a real meeting. Turns out, about 92% of companies use social media for hiring – excluding LinkedIn. Your social media persona can help get the job (i.e. show creativity) or it can hamper your chances (i.e. show incompetence).

Here’s some Dos and Don’ts on how to use Social Media to your advantage!


  • Do choose a profile picture that is not scandalous and/or offensive.
  • Do create a user name that is close to your real name. Corrects spelling helps!
  • Don’t post everything you may find funny and/or go on a rant.
  • Don’t use offensive, racial and/or obscene language in most of your posts.


  • Do choose an appropriate profile picture with a clear view of your face.
  • Do make sure you spell check your profile.
  • Don’t lie on your profile.

Personal Blog/ Instagram/ Youtube/ Tumblr/Pinterest

  • Do show your creativity, worth ethic and interests!
  • Don’t leave your profile “public” if what you post may discredit you.

Remember, every comment you make can trace back to your profile, so make sure your digital presence can impress and captivate the employer. Let them start chasing you for once!
