The weeks leading up to Christmas are a time that many of us associate with winding down and relaxing while looking forwards to a nice break. Looking for work over this period of time can feel daunting, however, many employers do continue to recruit over the festive period. There are several things you can do to make yourself more appealing to potential employers this time of the year.
Christmas is coming, and an air of excitement is setting in as a result. If you are stuck at work however, it can take the shine off the festive buzz a little – or it can distract you from your work instead.
Your dream job in Renewable Energy or Building Services could be just around the corner. But before you get there you’ve got a necessary hoop to jump through. Yes, that’s right – the dreaded CV.
Salary is one of the most influential factors for accepting a job, or even pursuing a particular career. Knowing what salary you should be earning is vital to ensuring you’re getting paid what you’re worth, based on your individual skills and experience.
If your Building Services or Energy company is constantly on the look out for new talent, you know you’re on the right track, whether or not the search itself is a struggle. Organisations often need to look for new recruits in order to support an expansion or a new project.
If you’ve been in your current position for a few years, it can be easy to fall into thinking that a change of career would mean having to start on the bottom rung of the ladder.
Let’s face it. There’s nothing like returning from holiday to bring you back down to Earth with an almighty thud. Going back to work after a week or two chilling with family and friends can be particularly challenging, and mustering up the motivation to switch back into work mode can be difficult.
Congratulations – you’ve graduated! Now, comes the hard part of finding a job. Being a graduate can greatly improve your job prospects, but with so much competition around, you need to put a job-hunting strategy in place to secure your dream role.
Passive candidates – those who are not currently applying or even looking for new positions – tend to be extremely talented, and incredibly difficult to sell a role to. Recruiting passive candidates is not an easy job but it can be very rewarding when you manage to recruit a high performing and sought-after individual for an important role.
It’s often said that choosing a career is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. The right job will enthuse and inspire you, maximising your strengths and helping you live a happy and fulfilling life.
