Looking for a new job is not always that easy. Once you have a job it is easy to become complacent however it is important to look for growth in your potential as well as your salary!
Your new job could be within the company you are working for either as a promotion or transfer, or outside of this company. Here are some tips and ideas to consider when seeking a new job:
Timing: Unless totally unacceptable you should try and stay in your job for at least a year, two or three so that your resume reflects someone ‘stable’
Connections: Use your connections and ask around especially if you are in a ‘networking’ environment such as sales. Referrals and word of mouth can be very handy when job searching. If you are thinking of using any of the social media outlets such as Facebook or twitter for job seeking and you are still employed make sure to be discreet. This is where a recruitment agency can be of help.
Preparation: Make sure you are up to date with any or all areas of training or courses that will strengthen your skill set. Keep a record of any ‘successes’ or promotions that you have received and make sure your resume is up to date with your accomplishments, results and specific duties and skills.
Interviewing: Be prepared for your interviews both physically and mentally. Dress appropriately for the position and make sure you have researched the company, created a list of questions you wish to ask and be prepared to answer questions. One question that seems to be a stumbling block for people is “why are you looking to move?” make sure your answer is diplomatic – you don’t want to burn bridges with your old employer, you never know when you might have dealings with them down the track especially if you are staying in the same industry.
Salary: If you start receiving job offers make sure you consider the salary and benefits carefully. What might seem a better salary at one job might actually not be when you factor in the benefits at another job.
Seeking that new job can be very time consuming and if you are in a position that is very demanding that will leave you very little time to job hunt. This is where a recruitment agency can be very handy. A recruitment agency will interview you and talk about your job requirements. Then they can source the right job, the right salary and the right location for you as well as set up the interview leaving you to get on with your job knowing that someone is out job hunting for you.
