Applications
A job application, with a CV and a covering letter, can be submitted through the Public Employment Service, or directly to the employer or through an employment official at a district labour office. It is very important to state the number of the vacancy in the letter.

You can send in your CV through certain large private employment agencies, in order for your application to be considered when a vacancy for someone with your skills and experience arises. This is common practice. You can find those agencies through the Cyprus Human Resource Management Association (CYHRMA) or by searching the Internet. Some large organisations and some employment agencies have a website in which you can fill in your particulars and apply for an existing or future vacancy.

The CV is a very important element in the search for employment. There is no standardised CV, but the Europass CV is disseminated very quickly to the Cyprus business world. The CV must be prepared carefully and sincerely, be checked for spelling and other mistakes, provide a rounded view of your capabilities, knowledge, experience, specialisation and interests and offer references and other items that will generate a positive impression in relation to the specific job vacancy right at the outset. The CV is usually sent with a covering letter stating the title of the job, where you saw the job advertised and how you can be contacted. You will find advice about how to prepare a good CV on the Europass website.

The process of filling a vacancy usually begins with an advertisement in a newspaper or through an employment agency, for example, stating the particulars of the job and giving a general description of the company. That is followed by the forwarding of CVs by a specified date, initial evaluation of the CVs and selection of candidates for interview. The candidate who is successful usually has two or three interviews.

Companies often hold written examinations or carry out forms of practical tests at assessment centres, for instance. The employer analyses the capacities of the candidates in those ways in order to identify the best qualified individual. In every circumstance you must, as a candidate, be prepared in accordance with the job requirements, have knowledge of the specific employment sector, of the environment in the economic sector and of the situation on the ground in Cyprus, and be able to present your strong points.

Interviews for people who do not speak Greek are usually conducted in English, unless there is another common language.
