Christmas is coming which means the busiest time of year is fast approaching! People get caught up in the Christmas chaos and let their job search slip. Make sure this isn’t you! There is less competition out there when applying for roles so use this time to your advantage.
Give yourself the gift of your dream job this Christmas and begin your job hunting now.
Follow our 4 step guide below to help you get started:
1. Do your research:
You need to establish what type of job you are looking for, whether it is similar to the role you are in now or a complete career change. It’s important that you do this research in order to discover all the options that are available to you.
You need to find out what skills are needed for the job and compare them with your own skill set. This will allow you to tailor your search and see what you may actually be capable of.
2. Take control and make yourself stand out from the crowd:
Having an up-to-date CV is a must. You need to make sure you’ve highlighted your key achievements, explained the work experience you have and give the potential employer an insight into what you are like as a person. Your CV is the first touch point between you and the organisation, so it’s important to get it right.
LinkedIn is also an important tool to use to your advantage to create your personal brand. It provides one of the best opportunities to increase your visibility and credibility. You can upload content that allows you to develop a three-dimensional view that clearly highlights your skills and abilities.
