What do you want from your new job?
Research is extremely important to help you secure a job that will be right for you. Whether you want to work in a particular industry like tech or web design, or you just want a new challenge, choosing an area of focus is essential to your success. Are you someone that will thrive in a fast paced, customer service environment, or do you prefer the office environment producing paperwork for tight deadlines? Whichever new career you are pursuing make sure you know the ins and outs of the role, before you apply. And if you land an interview, make sure you show off some of that research and prior knowledge.
Read the job description
Just because a job has the same job title as the one you are looking for, doesn’t mean it will be the job you are thinking of. Job titles will elude to different responsibilities within different companies. As a result, you should always read the job description thoroughly, to avoid being embarrassed at the job interview.
Make yourself available
If there is a vacancy or a company you are interested in working for or with, get in touch. Let them know you are interested and talented. Many companies take on prospective CVs even when the vacancy is not yet open. Especially start-ups and companies that are looking to expand.
If you are lucky enough to land an interview, make sure you make the most of anything that is offered. Whether its a tour of the office or a pre-interview question and answer session. This will show your interest and you will look like a better candidate.
