When someone wants to win a wager on a horse they don’t go in blind, they do their research and study the form. The same is true on the job hunt.

Today’s Tip: Be Driven on the Job Hunt

Whether you’re not currently working and looking to get back into employment, or you’re looking for a new challenge – the opportunities won’t land at your feet: you must be proactive in your job hunt. Searching for employment can be a job in itself so you’ll need to approach it with eagerness and enthusiasm. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Get up in the morning. If you’re not working at the moment, it can be easy to slip into a rut. Getting up early in the morning adds structure to your day. Spend some time in the morning browsing the job sites, working on your CV, researching companies, etc. You’ll have more time in your day and will have the right mindset.
  • Try to articulate what it is you’re looking for. If you can put your ideal job or employment opportunity into words, it can make it more achievable and allows you to target your search.
  • Keep up to date. Sign up on jobs boards to get notifications when new job opportunities arise.
  • Be sure to network. Great opportunities often come when you least expect them, so always consider the people around you and what career options they might be able to offer you.
  • Be persistent, not pushy. If you don’t hear back within a few days, you can enquire about your application and see if there are any updates, it’ll show that you’re interested and eager.
