2017 is your chance to seek out a new career

 

Weโ€™re rapidly approaching a new year, a new time in life. A new year should always be seen as an opportunity or a chance to begin again. Specifically, I think you should be considering laying out a new path for your career. Forget about where you were in 2016 and look towards new challenges or choices. If youโ€™re not happy with the job youโ€™re currently working in, change it. If you want to try your luck in a completely new industry, explore it. There is nothing holding you back except the failure to attempt a change. Once you take the first step, though, you might find it easier than you thought. Of course, itโ€™s all very well suggesting that you get out there and find a new career, but how do you actually go about it? What are the steps that you will need to take?

Look At Your CV

The first issue that you will need to consider when seeking out a new career if your CV. if you have been stuck in the same job for a while, your CV might be a little outdated. It also probably wonโ€™t be particularly impressive which is an issue. If it doesnโ€™t stand out, youโ€™re going to find it very difficult to win the type of job that you want. Therefore, you need to look at your CV and try to think of any way that you might be able to improve it. Believe it or not, having a long time on your CV where you have been working in the same job is an advantage. Itโ€™s an attractive possibility for new employers because it shows both loyalty and dedication. But they may also want to know why you havenโ€™t advanced your career at any significant level. You will have to be prepared for this type of question in an interview.

You need to think about whether your CV is suited for the new type of job you want. This is a little tricky, particularly now that employers use automated software to select and choose the best CVs when they recruit new workers. If you donโ€™t have a CV that has the right keywords or phrases to match the job, you wonโ€™t be considered. That means you could be great for a job and youโ€™ll be dismissed, simply because your CV is worded incorrectly. How terrible is that?

2017 is your chance to seek out a new career

Learn New Skills, Better Yourself

The best way to ensure that you do get the job you want is to add things to your CV that fit that role. To do this, you just need to think about signing up for new courses and pushing yourself to fit that position. It doesnโ€™t matter what job you are considering going after. If you want to grab it, you just need to think about taking a few online courses. This will almost automatically make you more qualified for that position. It will also easily improve your CV and your standing against other candidates.

Seek Out At Specialised Recruiter

If you want to be put forward for the best positions in your chosen industry, you should aim for representation from a pro recruiter. A professional specialized recruitment agency will represent the best businesses in the field. Getting their help is like having your own personal agent. They will push your CV for positions that they believe you are suited for. With a recruitment agency, you might even find positions were open that previously werenโ€™t. For instance, a credit control recruiter will give you the opportunity at one of the best positions with an employer that has an opening. Since they are representing the best clients, you can guarantee that they will also be able to find you a fantastic, high paying job. Of course, whether or not you win the job will depend on whether you can impress the employer.

Soaring Through The Interview

The final stage of winning a new position in your dream career is ensuring that your crack that all important interview. Donโ€™t forget that you need them to be impressed as soon as you walk in the door. You should already have them thinking that you are one of the best they have seen for the job at this stage. If you canโ€™t do this, be prepared to be beaten by someone else who has. There is always a candidate that an employer clicks with straight away. You need that candidate to be you.

I hope you see now that beginning a new career path in 2017 wonโ€™t be as hard as you think.
