Remember everyone wants you to find your perfect role and at Hudson Shribman we work with you to secure success. These are our top tips for job hunting.
Many recruiters will have a wide network of candidates to choose from and the jobs coming in will never make it to advertising sites. Contact recruiters and ensure they have all your details so that they can respond fast to those new enquiries from clients.
If you don’t get the job it’s not because you’re a failure, it’s because it wasn’t a right fit. Recruiters see candidates with all the qualifications, excellent reputations and winning personalities rejected. The best thing you can do is try to get some feedback and carry on with applications. Don’t let them get you down – everyone with ambition has let downs they just don’t talk about them!
Employers use social media to check out candidates – they really do. Google yourself, check your Facebook, Twitter and, most importantly, LinkedIn profiles and check they match the image you’re intending to convey. If you describe yourself as a diligent family man make sure your photos reflect that!
Companies want employees that know about their business and have taken an interest. You may think you’re limiting your choices but you’re increasing your chances of success. Research companies that you’d ideally like to work for. Are there similar companies you hadn’t heard of? Are there new start-ups that work in the same industry? Research the landscape and delve that little bit deeper. Even if you apply to the market leaders they’ll be impressed that you have a good awareness of the competition and if you can articulate exactly why you chose them over the competition you’re increasing your chances further.
Always update your CV! The recruitment world works very fast and an hour delay could prevent your details being forwarded. Make sure your recruiter is aware of any updates. A CV is an evolving thing. Even if you haven’t had any paid work to add, you can always make small adjustments and improvements. Think about how your interests represent you, think about the tone of your profile, think about the qualifications and experience you emphasise and the things that probably aren’t that relevant. Build on the feedback you’re given and allow the recruiter to advise for applications to particular clients or for particular roles.
