The latest job search tips 2014
Job search with CA Global Headhunters – You recruitment in Africa specialist
Now that I have been working in the recruitment industry practicing Public Relations for almost one year, a very common concern that I noticed most job hunters have when seeking employment is, when would be the best time to do so. The purpose of this post is to provide you all with some practical and useful tips for when you should start your job search.
So, when is the right time to start your job search? People working in the field of Human Resources and Recruitment are normally taking time off during the festive season and so the tip here is to perhaps not job hunt during that period. I would also recommend that you wait for offices to get back into the swing of things before contacting them. One week is ample time. Above everything, even though its a quiet period, keep skimming job boards as you never know what vacancies CA Global Headhunters or other recruitment firms have on offer.
Most importantly start your job search when you feel the time is right, for me personally the time is right always; conducting a job search is not necessarily a one-day event! 🙂
Spunk it up a bit…be daring!
If your job satisfaction is low and you want to start with a new a chapter, a new job search then don’t waste your time, and don’t waste the company’s time. Your job search will be less stressful if you are still employed while looking, this way there is no real rush. Another benefit about looking at the job market and being employed at the same time means you can be selective in the roles you consider. SEARCH SEARCH AND DON’T STOP SEARCHING! Try to keep your LinkedIn profile up to date with your latest projects and work achievements, awards and certificates as this is why and how recruiters and job opportunities will come knocking on your door.
The Recruitment Industry is comprised of 2 types of candidates so to speak.
The first type is: Active Candidates and these types of candidates conduct their job search with frequent job applications, their CV is always updated, most likely on several job portals and has experienced with interviews. Then you get the second type of candidates: Passive Candidates who are open to at least looking at good opportunities when they arise. Not one of these is more correct than the other, they are simply different.
