Qualifications can only get you so far. You need your personality to shine through on your CV. In order to do this, you need to show as many things as possible that you do when you aren’t in school. Or if your older, show what represents you the best to how you are as a person when you are outside the office. If people cannot clearly show who they are as a person and what their business is capable of providing to employers through their personality then they are very unlikely to make anything of themselves. This can prove to be incredibly damaging for brands in the long term.
The admissions process is often a very cut throat one which makes no exceptions for people regardless of their qualifications if they are unable to offer anything particularly interesting. You need to make yourself look different to your rival applicants. All types of applicants are trying to make themselves stand out from the crowd. If everyone has got the same qualifications then its of paramount importance that you ensure you do something to make your application appear to be different.
When you are entering into a team its essential that you are able to show evidence to employers that you have experience of team work. This is where evidence of you being a part of a sports team can get you an incredibly long way. Showing that you have experience of being able to better your company in the long term can be vital to help propel you towards employment. Showing evidence you are experienced with regards to chasing goals can help show you are a driven individual who has no qualms about chasing goals and achieving targets.
