Hard to believe there's only just over 2 weeks to go until Christmas. The festive countdown is well and truly under way and my son is counting the sleeps until Santa visits.
This time of year marks an important point in your Job Search, as we move into the New Year and the jobs market enjoys a flurry of activity. With this in mind, here are a few tips to help you prepare for the January jobs rush:

  • Perfect your CV - a great, up to date and well written CV is the backbone of any successful job search. If you haven't had your CV overhauled for a while, then it's probably time for an overhaul. Career Master CVs can help put you on the right track.
  • Help Recruiters find you - as they gear up for the New Year jobs rush, recruiters will be searching CV databases and LinkedIn for great candidates to match available roles. Let us help you with an overhaul of of your LinkedIn Profile and CV so that they are fully optimised to improve your chances of being found in searches. We like to work with you to keep in touch with recruiters and as we have some great relationships with recruiters, we are sometimes first to find out about new vacancies before they are advertised. If you're a client of Career Master CVs, we will send your new CV to all relevant recruiters for you if a job comes up in your area/sector. 
  • Reach out to contacts - the festive season provides us with a great opportunity to reach out to professional contacts you may have lost touch with. Why not combine your festive greeting with a message to let them know you're interested in hearing about any new job opportunities? Make sure your CV is up to scratch first though or it could cause unwanted delays and missed opportunities later! 
This is a great time to get your job search under way so you can hit the ground running in January and take advantage of the New Year's opportunities. 

Best Wishes,
