Start by networking, uncover the hidden job market.

The hidden job market is a term used to describe jobs that are not advertised publicly. For years, career experts have estimated that the hidden job market accounts for 70-80% of all open positions. For this reason, it’s worth speaking to those in your network to identify if they can link you to any opportunities. Talk to your friends, family, and former colleagues to see if they know of any open positions.

Update your CV and LinkedIn profile.

Make sure your CV is up-to-date and highlights your skills and experience. Our staff have written thousands of CVs, so they know what works and what doesn’t. They can help you craft something that is tailored to your specific skills and experience, and that will get you noticed by potential employers. You should also optimize your LinkedIn profile so that it’s visible to potential employers.

Practice your interviewing skills.

The more you practice, the more comfortable you will be in the interview setting. This will help you project confidence and make a good impression on the interviewer. Many interviewers ask the same questions over and over again. By practicing your answers to these questions, you will be able to give clear and concise answers that will impress the interviewer. Our staff can assist you with this and help you with practise.
