Step 1: Investigate 🔎
Great developers go through a discovery phase to determine the most effective way to approach a buildout. Similarly, we recommend going through a discovery phase of potential clients before applying for a job.
In other words, don’t just limit yourself to reading a job description. Go a step further and review their website, social media, and any additional information you can find to receive a better understanding of the client and their needs.
Keep an eye out for company-specific keywords or repetitive language, while making note of interesting aspects about their background, product, or company goals.
— Research the company and job in detail. Make note of interesting aspects and save them for step 2.
Step 2: Play Matchmaker 🤝
Keep in mind that each client receives numerous applications and portfolios. As a result, it’s important to differentiate yourself and cut through the noise.
Use what you learned from Step 1 to present yourself in a way that caters to the client’s needs during the application process. For example, incorporate key language you noticed throughout their website as this is sure to offer a sense of comfort through familiarity while they review your application.
You can also slim down your portfolio and drive singular attention to the projects you’ve worked on that speak specifically to their needs.
— Tailor your application and portfolio to the job you are applying for. Incorporate key language from their digital presence and speak to their needs.
