Job Search Tips

‘Some people spend more time planning their next holiday than planning how to secure their next job!’

 

Tips for job searching:

  • Searching for a new job is a job in itself!
  • Create a job seeking plan and track activity
  • Target opportunities that are a match for your skills and experience
  • Select industries and companies that attract you
  • Create your personal communication plan to talk to prospective employers
  • Keep your search broad and utilise a variety of sources – online job boards, print advertisements, company websites, social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, twitter)
  • More than 60% of new jobs are not advertised and up to 80% of job seekers find their next role through networking and the magic words, ‘I wonder if you could help me?’
  • Be resilient and don’t give up!
