See some tips below to help you on your job search

Plan your job search

Before you start your job search it’s important to know what you want to gain from your new position. Make a list, for example; Job location, salary, benefits, hours etc.

Why not chat with a recruitment consultant to help you in your job search. Recruitment consultants can provide you with advice, review your CV and provide you with interview tips.

It’s a ‘candidate market’ out there right now, so if you want to work for a particular company, mentioning this to a recruitment consultant could help make it happen!

Revamp your CV

Model your CV to fit the job that you are applying for. One CV will not work for a number of similar roles. Each application should have a slightly different CV. It is important to give a brief summary of your experience and then tweak your CV to the particular job that you are applying for. Stand out from the crowd and include your hobbies, this can be an excellent talking point during the interview!

Research

Sometimes the job might sound ideal but the company doesn’t suit your personality. Make sure you researched the company that you are attending interview with.It is important to have an understanding of the culture of the company and how you could see yourself fitting in.

Interview Preparation 

(STAR – Situation, Task, Action, Result). 

Preparation is key! Know your CV ‘inside out’. Have relevant examples prepared to back up past experience/projects. Try using “The STAR” approach. This is a fantastic but simple method to help you talk in detail about your experience and make yourself stand out.

Don’t worry if we don’t find you a job straight away – the right  job is not always out there the minute that you start looking! Finding the best job for you sometimes takes time, so we will endeavor to keep in touch with each candidate as much as possible, updating you on new and relevant positions.

Remember! Be patient, stay focused and remain determined.

We love to hear from you too – so don’t be afraid to call us or drop us a line. Sometimes, candidates’ requirements and conditions change and we only know this if you tell us.
