Tips and tales of job hunting

Job hunting, it’s a stressful time. Whether you are leaving University and looking for your first full time job or you are looking to move careers, everyone goes through the same experience; Preparation, Applications and Interviews.

January and early summer are the two busiest points in the year for company hiring. In January you have people starting their new year, moving on with their life plan, looking for a change or honestly sometimes just better salaries. Then, in April and May you have all the University graduates beginning their search to find their first job.

So how do you navigate the choppy waters of job hunting? Here are some handy tips!

  1. Your CV
  2. Cover Letter
  3. Applications
  4. Interviews
  5. Offers and acceptance

Ok so you’ve done the preparation, you’ve updated your CV several times, written hundreds of cover letters and had a bunch of interviews. Finally you find somewhere you like a lot and they offer you the position. WELL DONE!

Tip: Don’t feel you have to accept straight away, you have the right to consider their offer and get back to them
