InterQuest Group's 5 Top Tips for Effective Job Searching

  1. 1. rQu nt e I p’s rou tG es ive ct f fe rE Fo ng hi rc ea S ob J
  2. 2. 1 EMPLOYERS OFTEN USE ALTERNATIVES TO ADVERTISING JOBS, LIKE HEAD-HUNTING AND REFERRALS. TRY TO THINK BEYOND SIMPLY SEARCHING THE MAIN JOB BOARDS. MAKE SPECULATIVE APPLICATIONS TO ORGANISATIONS YOU WANT TO WORK FOR, CONNECT WITH COMPANIES AND NETWORK USING SOCIAL MEDIA.
  3. 3. 2 N W O K E R T NETWORKING IS ABOUT MAKING CONTACTS THAT CAN ENHANCE YOUR CAREER PROSPECTS. SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLS LIKE LINKEDIN ARE A GREAT WAY TO NETWORK. YOU DON’T NEED TO DIRECTLY ASK YOUR CONTACTS IF THEY KNOW OF ANY JOBS, BUT BY JOINING DISCUSSIONS AND CONVERSATIONS YOU CAN SHOW YOUR EXPERTISE AND LEARN WHO IS HIRING.
  4. 4. 3 HAVING AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT YOU WANT FROM YOUR NEXT ROLE AND THE KIND OF COMPANY YOU WANT TO WORK FOR IS A HUGE ADVANTAGE. THIS WILL HELP YOU CONDUCT A MORE FOCUSED AND EFFECTIVE SEARCH, WHICH WILL HELP YOU MAKE TARGETED APPLICATIONS FOR JOBS YOU REALLY WANT.
  5. 5. 4 LET EMPLOYERS COME TO YOU MAKE YOURSELF EASY TO FIND BY POSTING YOUR CV ONLINE ON RELEVANT JOB BOARDS AND BY HAVING A COMPLETE PROFILE ON LINKEDIN. HAVING A FULL PROFILE AND A PUBLIC CV MAKES YOU BOTH SEARCHABLE AND CONTACTABLE. DOING THIS MAKES YOUR CV AVAILABLE TO THOUSANDS OF RECRUITERS, EMPLOYERS AND HIRING MANAGERS.
  6. 6. 5 DON’T LET THE JOB SEARCH GET YOU DOWN! SEARCHING FOR A JOB CAN BE TOUGH AND IF YOU GET A FEW REJECTIONS IN A ROW IT CAN TAKE ITS TOLL ON YOUR MORALE. PERSISTENCE IS THE KEY TO GETTING INTERVIEWS AND A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IS VITAL TO SECURING A JOB ONCE YOU GET TO INTERVIEW!
