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 perspective employers.
  • Keep your search broad and utilise a variety of sources - online job boards, 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.
