Quick Tips


Get the Basics Right first

Beware of building a job-hoppers CV. It will eventually come back to haunt you as employers will be wary of taking you on for fear that you will soon be off again. If you want more challenge, then do at least explore the possibility of first making an internal move. There may well be opportunity elsewhere in your current organisation.





Assess your own Life Needs
Find a quiet moment and ask yourself what it is that you want out of life.

Are you ambitious for position and money?
Do you want always to be learning new things?
Are you after the quiet life?
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
What makes you happy?
What particular skills have you already got,
and what skills would you like to have?
Show an interest - have questions of your own to ask
Once you have assessed your life needs then it is much easier to work out some clear aims for the coming months and years.
Where you want to work
What environment you want to work in
How much you want to earn
What skills you want to gain

...and lastly
In what timescale you want to do all this.
Ensure you know all about the Company:
Now you know what you want, you can start gathering information on potential employers, creating a 'Killer CV' and winning yourself interviews with
organisations that fit your needs. Either do this yourself or of course use us to find you a suitable 'fit'. Throughout the process, always keep your
eye on your original aims and enjoy the feeling of getting your career under control.
