Application & Interview advice

The MGT team do offer an applications advice service. This is available to use before you submit your application documents via CareerConnect. You should send your CV and covering letter, tailored to the specific MGT role you are applying for, via mgt@manchester.ac.uk

However before you consider sending us your application, have a look at the resources below to ensure you have tailored your application specifically to the job description. Try to make your application the best it can be before you send it to us for additional advice. You may even find that if you use all these great resources, you don't even need to send it.

CVs

Your CV should demonstrate the relevant skills, experience and knowledge that make you a strong candidate for the MGT role you are applying for.

Covering Letters

Your cover letter acts as the introduction to your application and is your personal sales pitch.

Interviews

If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to an interview. When it comes to interviews, good preparation is key to success.

  • You’re running late or can no longer attend an interview.
  • You would like some help in making a decision about a job offer (or offers!) you’ve had and how to deal with recruiters.
