All talents are leaders at AccorHotels
NUMBER ONE: SPEND TIME ON YOUR CV
Your CV is your business card: it determines the first impression that recruiters form of you. Make sure it is clear and concise, a maximum of one page and allows the reader to see at a glance the skills and experience that are most aligned with the position applied for, and with our Group. At AccorHotels we recruit personalities, so don't be afraid to show some of your own, for example by stating your personal interests! The most important thing is to proofread thoroughly. There's no excuse for spelling mistakes. If you really cannot stand CVs, why not innovate and introduce yourself with a format that fits your personnality?
NUMBER TWO: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A POLISHED COVERING LETTER
Your covering letter is a unique opportunity to convey key messages to the recruiter. Say what your motivations are: why AccorHotels in particular, why this vacancy. Introduce your talents, the skills you acquired during past experiences, what you could bring to this role.
Lastly, give an idea of your career plans and demonstrate that you have properly understood all of the position's challenges. One last tip: if you don't want to sound fake, stick to the truth.
NUMBER THREE: THOROUGHLY PREPARE FOR THE INTERVIEW
Ignore the urban myths: you can't ad-lib your way through an interview, you have to prepare for it. This special opportunity to dialogue with the recruiter is a unique chance to convince them that you're the right talent for the job. You therefore need to do your homework on us, our news and our values. For each argument, have a concrete example to share and identify in advance the key information that you want to convey, so you don't leave out the most important things. On the day itself, remember that it's mainly about two people talking to each other, so have faith in yourself and be natural.
NUMBER FOUR: DON'T NEGLECT YOUR E-REPUTATION
Just like you, our recruiters are active on social media and professional networks, including LinkedIn, Facebook and others. This is therefore an opportunity for you to take a different approach to showcasing your professional identity and optimising your visibility, for example with recommendations. We don't need to say it, but we'll say it anyway: be careful with your personal pages.
