Are you looking for a complete career change? Are you looking for a new job in a different city? Does this mean you need to consider relocating?
There are a number of things you need to think about whilst looking for a new job. Here are some top tips that can help you find your perfect job.
- Get to know the area
Make sure you do in-depth research about the city you want to work in - is it a good fit for your lifestyle and career prospects? What is the commute like from where you are currently living? Is relocating an option? Get as much information as possible about the local job market and transport links to help you make an educated decision.
- Find and target specific companies
Create a target list of the companies you want to work for and gather as much information on them as you can. Then, write a tailored CV for each company and the job role you want. Don’t be afraid to send them your CV and covering letter, even if they aren’t hiring. It shows you are proactive and want to work for them. Be bold and confident!
- Utilise social networking to help your job search
It is common practice now for both recruiters and companies to utilise social media, in particular LinkedIn, to advertise jobs. Follow the companies on your target list and sign up for job alerts. It is important to make sure that your LinkedIn profile is up to date. It is also a good idea to build your connections on LinkedIn; it can be a great way to build relationships with professionals and get your name out there.
- Consider a temporary or part-time job
There may be some short-term jobs you can do until you get a permanent offer, therefore, considering taking on a temporary job can be a good way to make some money whilst searching for a new job. This can also help you build connections with people whilst job hunting.
