The Job Search Recap
When embarking on any task the best results will come from having a well thought out plan in place. Your job search is no different and to find the next rung on the career ladder you need to plan and execute your strategy with precision.
At Cranmore, we know that your job search is extremely important and you need to be prepared for each step of the process.
Use your Network:
When you are thinking about applying to your next role it is important to assess your online reputation and presence. If you have not updated your LinkedIn profile for a while, then now is the time to refresh it. Add in any new qualifications or skills that you have acquired and ask people you know to endorse you. Become more actively online by creating and sharing valuable content.
Next, you should reach out to your current network and see if there are any roles that may be available. Jobs are not always advertised so it is worth making some inquiries. You can then also connect with people online who work in the sector or company you are interested in.
Update your CV:
Have a look at the available jobs online to see what common criteria the job description asks for and update your cv to highlight how your experience matches these essential skills. Make sure that your resume is a clear and precise overview of your career history and make it easy for the recruiter to see how you are experienced and qualified enough to fit the role. Don’t forget to proofread it. See our other CV tips here.
