I'm currently in the process of finding and applying for jobs in the lower echelons of the world of libraries. A couple of likely looking assisstant/trainee jobs have come up, jobs where I could get the experience I need to become a lot more employable in the jobs that really interest me (data manipulation and other such arcane arts). However after submitting my CV to each of them I've not been asked in for an interview for any of the jobs.
So, I'm just wondering if I'm missing some key qualities they might be looking for, and if people can suggest areas I should look into strengthening skills sets, courses I can do to get an edge over the other candidates, or perhaps just better ways of phrasing the standard skills to be more attention grabbing to the people looking at my CV. Cheers.
