New Year, New Career?
By: Accenture Recruitment


For many, the new year is a time for reflection and goal setting. Much like “losing weight” and “saving more money,” “changing careers” often finds itself at the top of many New Year’s resolutions lists. Studies show that the beginning of the year is actually a great time to look for a new job; however, with so many other job hopefuls doing the same, what can you do to increase your chances of getting noticed by hiring managers – particularly in a new field?

Below are five ways to build your credibility and stand out from the crowd during your job hunt.

  1. Take a class or get a certification in your new field
  2. Actively engage in industry related topics on LinkedIn and other social channels
  3. Increase your networking with people you know who currently work in the field you are interested in
  4. Provide pro-bono skills to non-profits during your spare time
  5. Accept a lower level or lesser paying position – to get your foot in the door

Are there any other tips you would add to the list? We would love to hear from you. Leave your comments below and be sure to check out Careers page to see our open roles.
