I'm ready to look for a job

Looking for a job can be a challenging and rewarding experience. Before you start, take time to reflect on your skills, passions and career goals. This will guide your job search and help you find opportunities that fit your individual situation.

Having a complete and well-crafted CV that highlights your achievements will help you stand out to future employers. 

Likewise, a cover letter should emphasise your enthusiasm for a role as well as your qualifications.

Find out early on if you need specific skills or experience for the job you’re looking for – if you do, factor this into your job search. Having exactly what an employer is looking for will give you a head-start over the competition and make you more marketable.

Networking is an increasingly important part of job hunting so make the most of online platforms like LinkedIn to connect with professionals in your industry. Attend industry events and job fairs to further expand your network.

Set realistic goals, like applying for a certain number of jobs each week or reaching out to a specific number of contacts. Remember that rejection is part of the process so don’t be disheartened if you don’t get the first job you apply for – learn from each experience.
