How to get ahead of your New Year job search…

Niche Recruitment | Getting ahead of your New Year Job Search Blog

Christmas and New Year are often the times to wind down and reflect – both professionally and personally. If you’re looking for a new job or career change in 2019, it’s best to make the most of your Christmas break and get ahead! Preparation is the key to a successful job search and with the help of the Niche team, we’ve put together 4 top tips on how to smash 2019 and land your dream job…

Get organised… 

Before the search begins, it’s crucial you make sure your CV is as up-to-date as possible! Double check everything from your personal information, employment history and your current job situation. It’s common for people to forget to update their LinkedIn profile but this can be employees’ first port of call so it’s important it’s relevant and correlates with your CV.

Get clear…

Make sure you have a clear idea of what is it you want out of your job search. Are you looking for a permanent or temporary role? Do you have a salary minimum? Are you looking to progress in your new role? What kind of business are you looking to join? You don’t have to have answers to everything but a good idea of what it is you’re looking for will really help you narrow down your search and find a company and of course job that’s a good fit.

Get reading…

Reading around the subject/industry you wish to advance into is always a great way to widen your knowledge. What’s in the news at the moment? Does the industry have developments? Have there been any recent changes in legislation? Having this knowledge in your back pocket in an interview will no doubt wow the interviewers and of course, help prepare you well for a future role. That Christmas lull between the 25th and New Year’s Eve is a great time to get some reading done!
