New Year, New Job? Some Practical Tips…

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to find a new job? You’re not alone… According to the jobs website Indeed, the number of people looking for a new job increased by 64% last January compared with the rest of the year!

Finding a suitable role can be a full-time job in itself, so here are a few tips to help you start your search:

  1. Keep your CV up to date – look at your CV as a working document and try to update it as you go, adding any important achievements, projects and relevant training while they’re still fresh in your mind.
  2. Sign-up/use LinkedIn – a great tool for jobseekers! An updated profile will enable employers and recruiters to identify whether you have the relevant experience/skills/qualifications for the positions they are recruiting for and make an approach.
  3. Network – attending industry events can be a great way to meet other Company Secretaries, find out what’s happening in the market and even be introduced to a future employer.
