Top tips when looking for a new role

Understand what type of role you are looking for – it might not be what you are doing now.

Take the time to figure out what you want in a new job before you start looking for one. Money or a professional title aren’t always the most significant factors for you. Culture, flexibility, hours, hybrid working, and location are all possibilities. Just because a role seems right doesn’t imply it is; similarly, don’t dismiss anything just because it has a different job title than the one you are used to.

Tailor your CV to each job

Your CV is still one of the most crucial tools in a job search. Many job applications include duties rather than tangible accomplishments, and job seekers frequently send the same CV to many employers.

Take a moment to review the job description’s terminology and phrases, and make sure to include them in your CV (provided you have that experience, of course). Create a unique CV for each employment profile, emphasising the most relevant abilities and experience.

Just by looking at your resume, the recruiter should be able to identify if you have the skills they’re seeking for.

Let social media work for you

Remember that the majority of recruiters and hiring managers will conduct an online search on you. Make sure your social media profiles appropriately reflect how you want to be seen.

Create a personal brand by presenting your experience on social media sites like Linkedin. These are also useful resources for researching what firms are doing, learning about their cultures, and connecting with potential contacts. Don’t be hesitant to contact people on LinkedIn, and if you know someone who works for a company you’re interested in, ask for a referral. Hiring managers would rather interview persons who came highly recommended rather than sifting through resumes submitted through a career website.

Don’t get disheartened – set daily goals

Finding a new job requires a significant amount of time and work. It’s easy to get disheartened and distracted throughout a protracted job search, but setting daily goals can help you stay motivated while also laying the groundwork for success. Also, remember to be kind to yourself and take time to unwind.

Research the hiring company

It goes without saying that if you apply for a job, you should research the company. This is crucial not only in case you are invited to an interview and need to demonstrate your familiarity with the firm, but also so you can determine whether it is the type of organisation you want to work for.

Make sure you have examples relating to your skills

If you are invited to an interview, ensure that you are familiar with everything on your CV and that you have real-life examples of how you have applied these talents in the workplace. Hiring managers are particularly interested in learning how you might apply these skills in their workplace.
