As we move into the new year, we take stock of our achievements and focus on our next set of challenges and opportunities. For many people, this includes reviewing where we are in our careers and focusing on that next step.
To kickstart your search, we will publish a new series of blog posts written by our own recruiters that will focus on supporting job seekers through a range of often daunting challenges—from building your profile and taking your first steps into the market, to navigating our business and the various assessment processes.
If you can’t wait to get going, then why not look at some of our popular posts from our archive? Our recruiters have selected five of the best to get you started.
Find the right company.
Right job, right time—right company? Taking the next step in our career often makes us focus on our individual roles and responsibilities, but ensuring that the company is a good fit is a vital factor in making a successful transition.
Find the right opportunity.
Our next two posts focus on finding and preparing for the right opportunity. The first step is making sure that you have a resume that stands out to recruiters. Read about the three things our recruiters are looking for and how to optimize your resume accordingly.
Once you have your resume prepared, it’s common to then apply to suitable jobs you find advertised, but there is an alternative route to finding the right opportunity—by leveraging your network. Our networking skills post provides tips on developing leads for opportunities beyond your immediate network.
Find your way through the assessments.
Often considered the most intimidating part of the job-hunting process is the assessment stage. There can be a huge variation in the type of assessments that job seekers are asked to complete. Perhaps the most difficult type to prepare for is the case study interview. In this post, we provide advice on how you can best prepare for this type of assessment.
Remember, though, that interviews are also a two-way process, and they’re an opportunity to find out more about the role and company. If you’re not sure how to approach this aspect, we can set you on the right path by knowing how to ask the right questions in an interview.
