During the application and interview process speculate about the company and the position you are applying for. Establish early contact with the company that you are interested in. This shows dedication and also means that the company has a face to go with your name. As competition is fierce for jobs in Malta, it helps to be straightforward during your applications.
Your CV should be typed in Maltese or English. Make sure it is well-structured and concise and adapted to the job you are applying for. A good CV should include the following:
- Personal details
- Language proficiency
- IT knowledge
- Special skills
- Employment history / career path
Conduct in a job interview
The Maltese value punctuality so make sure you arrive at your interview with plenty of time to spare. Dress formally – a suit for men, and a trouser suit or a dress for women. This will show your interviewer you value the job and respect the company. This is especially true within the financial sector. Throughout the interview, highlight your educational achievements and experience. Constantly relate this to the job you are applying for (e.g. how it will benefit the company etc.).
