Job Profiles


 What is a job profile?

A job profile is written by employers. This will give specific information about the open job position. This is to ensure that they attract the most desirable candidates. It will describe the roles and responsibilities along with the qualifications and skills that are required. The details that you will find in a job profile will be: 

  • Job Title

  • Company 

  • Job Description

  • Job Requirements

  • Benefits and calls to action

You can then use the job profile to tailor your CV and Cover Letter to meet the requirements. You can see more information on our CV and Cover Letters Page.

Some websites provide details of job profiles which you might find useful when researching different roles, so you have a better understanding of what is involved in the role and the skills an employer may be looking for.
