Understandably, you’re only just getting your head around preparing for Christmas, but the time quickly approaches and, after the big day has come and gone, 2018 is just around the corner.
New year, new job or new perspective?
The New Year signifies the jump start you may need to move on in your career, but if you’re happy where you are then use this opportunity to excel and become an integral part of your team.
However, for the more life-changing opportunity of a new job, you will need to carry out the job process efficiently:
· Update your CV.
· Upload your CV to our CV directory and we will do all the hard work for you.
· All you will have to do is turn up for the interview to sell yourself!
OR… You could do it the hard way:
· Research the right job (a lot of time taken off your schedule).
· Apply for job after job – which can be detrimental to your self-esteem.
· Wait for the responses.
· Go to interview after interview for jobs, which may not be for the right role.
Being prematurely prepared can secure you the job
Improving your CV prior to the new year is vital: why wait to make it your new year’s resolution to get a new job?
Not only that, a large chunk of the population is going to think the exact same as you: ‘new year, new me’, meaning the competition level increases dramatically once January comes around.
Getting a job by the new year doesn’t mean you have until December to get started – you want to be tying up in December, not just kicking off!
DYWAJ advice: Produce a list of ideal companies, listing off positions that you feel would best suit you before December, so that you are prepared to apply by the beginning of December.
Importance of a positive attitude
One of the basic tips for carrying yourself correctly for an interview would be to have a positive attitude about yourself – your CV clearly sold it to the company, so go and smash the interview!
Our interview advice and techniques would be to tell yourself; “I am going to get a job here” rather than “what if I don’t get a job here?”
Getting a job secured before the new year will allow you to start in your new company with a fresh start for 2018 and means you can relax over the Christmas period – too bad on those who have only just started to apply!
