For many people a new year is often looked at as an opportunity for a fresh job. If your plans for a new job this year are off to a slow start here are four tips from our HR Team for finding a great workplace.
4 tips for a fresh start
Here are four tips from our HR team if you’re thinking about a new job:
1. Make a plan
Identify the type of workplace and job you really want and put a plan in place for what you need to do to get it.
2. Review your online presence
Future employers will be doing their homework on you, so make sure your online presence reflects the type of employee you’ll be.
3. Tailor your CV
Make sure your CV highlights your skills and the problems you solved. This will help a future employer picture what you could add to their organisation.
4. Do your homework
Research the company you’re thinking about applying to. Find out all you can from their website, social media presence and from your own network of friends and colleagues. This will help you decide if the company is right for you before you apply. And what you know about the business will come through in your cover letter and interview.
