New Year, New Job: Time for a Career Change in 2019?
Posted on Thursday, January 3, 2019 by The Career Guide — No comments
Does your alarm bring a sense of dread instead of excitement? Do you spend more time at work surfing and shopping than with your head down? Have you bumped your head on the career ceiling with your current company? Then it may be time to find a new job in 2019. If you’re looking to make a career change this year, here are the four things to start working on in the New Year.
Dust off your CV
One of the most important weapons in your job hunt is a strong, compelling CV that will bag you an interview. Research the latest CV trends for 2019—and know what is expected of CVs in your industry. Generally, CVs should be short, sweet, and to the point. Ensure you tailor your CV to each vacancy to show you’re truly interested in the position, rather than sending a generic CV for every job application.
If you’ve been with the same company for a while, then your career development may have stagnated. One way to invigorate your passion and get to know the latest information is getting certified in your field. Having new qualifications under your belt shows potential employers that you’re serious about your professional development, eager to learn, and open to new ideas—key attributes that hiring managers are looking for.
While it can be tempting to set a future date to start looking for a job, you might miss out on a great opportunity. So don’t wait to kick off your job search. If you work in temp jobs, start looking for your next position before the current one ends. Even if you don’t find your dream job yet, searching for jobs will give you more data about your industry, hiring trends, and emerging companies. All of this will inform your job search throughout 2019.
If you’ve been out of the jobs market for a while, are struggling to find a new job, or don’t seem to be landing any interviews, then it might be time to get expert help from a recruitment agency. The best recruitment agencies have insights into your industry, know what hiring manager want, and can make you stand out above the other candidates. They may even know about jobs that aren’t on the market yet. Plus, they can help you prepare your job applications. What’s more, their fees are often paid by the employer’s side.
New year, new start
The New Year is always a time of change—with many people setting New Year’s Resolutions and goals for the upcoming year.
