Create a great online portfolio
It’s often your application that needs working on if you keep getting rejected. After all, it might not be helping you to stand out from the other applicants. One way you can ensure you get noticed is to set up an online portfolio which you can link in your CV. The potential employer then can look on the site to check out what work you have completed in the past. Of course, you need to make sure your online portfolio is top notch.
