The stress of finding the perfect role

The stress of finding the perfect role

April is National Stress Awareness Month, and we know that there’s nothing more stressful than looking for the perfect role.

Whether you’ve been made redundant, you’re feeling stuck or you’re looking for a change of career, today’s competitive job market is making things difficult.

Long gone are the days of cover letters and in-person interviews. Nowadays, your CV speaks for you and remote interviews are the new norm!

We consider ourselves somewhat experts in the field of job hunting and recruitment and feel that we can offer you some advice on finding the perfect role.

1. Keep your CV up to date

Before you embark on your job-hunting journey, you need to make sure your CV is in top-notch shape.

Update your professional experiences, highlight those key achievements and always tailor your CV for the role you’re targeting.

2. Networking is your best friend

As we get closer to the warmer weather, networking events will become more frequent. Taking a look on websites like LinkedIn or EventBrite to discover events near you is a great place to start.

Attending events with professionals in your industry will allow you to meet likeminded people who can enhance your skills and introduce you to other professionals in the field.

Growing your professional network is key to finding your dream role.

3. LinkedIn is your secret weapon

As recruiters, we’re biased when it comes to LinkedIn. We truly believe it’s your secret weapon when it comes to looking for a new role.

Hiring managers, recruiters and business professionals will always head to LinkedIn to check out a candidates’ profile.
If you’re looking for a new role, and don’t have LinkedIn, set one up. If you do have one, make sure it’s up to date with your latest accomplishments, skills and aspirations.

Connect with professionals in the industry, join groups and don’t be scared to start conversations.

5. Recruiters are your friends!

Some bad apples in the world of recruitment give us a bad name, but a good recruiter is instrumental to your job search.

Recruitment consultants are somewhat experts when it comes to job searching. We know exactly what a company is looking for and also take the time to get to know exactly what a candidate is looking for.

With this expert knowledge, we can tailor our recruitment process and put you forward for roles we know you’d have a great shot at securing.
