3 key steps before you take the plunge into the job market!

When you are considering a career move there are 3 key steps to consider before making your move.

  1. Reflect on why you are looking for a change and what you want from your next job. Understanding your reasons for wanting to change jobs is very important as you will often be asked this question in interviews.  You also want to be sure on any move so to take a firm decision and have no regrets.  Having clear ideals for your next role will also help you identify which roles fit.
  2. Review your online profiles and dust down and rewrite your cv and covering letter. A strong presentation of your skills is needed so take time to compose your cv as clearly as possible.  It needs to be concise whilst including all key information – 2 / 3 pages long and certainly not 10 pages long!
  3. Prepare yourself for the job market. Identify recruiters who can help you best or are recommended by people you know.  You want to be sure your next career move is in the hands of someone who cares and will help you through this process.



Vicki Bedemen, our Managing Partner from our office in South Africa gives her full support to the importance of this saying, “”By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin, are words to live by when putting yourself in the market place. Get all your information together first, then approach your market representative (Head hunter/Recruiter). It makes the search for yourself and your rep so much smoother. “
