Jobs and Careers Autumn 2017 - 31

FOCUS ON

JOB HUNTING

1

LOOK FOR THE
OPPORTUNITIES

The job market should be seen as an opportunity
for you. If major corporates and large companies
are letting quantities of staff go, then it will be
smaller, more flexible, more ambitious and more
dynamic businesses that will have the nous to see
this as a chance for them to attract the kind of
high-class talent - and that means you - that they
may not have been able to appeal to in the past.

2

THINK ABOUT
WHAT EMPLOYERS
ARE LOOKING FOR

The number-one question in the mind of anybody
who is considering employing you will be - or at
least, really should be - "How much value can you
bring to my company?"
Everybody is very cost-conscious - businesses
aren't doing as well as they were, especially with
the Brexit uncertainty. There is no room for excess
fat, for time-servers and time-wasters. So, when
you're applying for a job and preparing for an
interview, ask yourself, "Am I an asset or a liability?"
Asset means you're adding value to a company,
while liability means you add no value and are
therefore just a cost. It's always going to make you
a more attractive candidate if you can show that
you will be a "high value for money" employee.

GET READY BEFORE
YOU GRADUATE

While there are more students graduating from
universities every year, there are also fewer job
opportunities. How do you stand out from the
other graduates in your field? This is the point at
which personality kicks in as an absolute must.
As a recent graduate, you're not only selling
your CV. You're selling yourself, who you are -
your values, beliefs, drives and motivations.
Ask yourself the following: "What are my
characteristics?", "What is my USP?" and
"What features and benefits can I offer to an
employer?" You need to use the answers and show
a positive enthusiasm for the job you want.

FIND COMPANIES
THAT WANT TO
GIVE YOU A JOB

Channel your efforts by targeting those companies
that want to give you a job. Fill their need. Winning an
interview is all about sending your CV to a company
that fits you and that you fit too.

5

MAKE THE MOST
OF ALL AVAILABLE
JOB-SEARCH OPTIONS

Should you use professional help, from recruitment
agencies and headhunters, to find your way through
all the options, apply direct to companies or make
yourself prominent, visible and marketable in the
digital marketplace? Why not do all three and exploit
every route available. Your sole aim is to reach the
person who is going to offer you the right job. In order
to achieve that, use all the options out there.
