So, you have decided it is time to look for a new job.
You can’t stand your boss, your colleagues annoy you, the hours are a joke and the commute is killing you and your family time.
Your family are behind you and it is time for a change.
But now is the time to stop for a minute, take a deep breath and start asking yourself some questions about whether you are making an astute, well planned career decision, or whether you are rushing into an emotional mistake, based on short-term issues?
Are you about to make a hasty decision you are going to regret?
So, are you really ready to move jobs?
You have decided that a job move is the right option.
But a lot is likely to have changed since since you last looked at your CV!
If you are beginning a job search, you need to make sure that your CV is looking relevant, succinct and up to date.
This is not something that should ever be overlooked.
Watch this video to get answers to questions like…
1) How long should my CV be?
2) Should I try fancy layouts and fonts to catch an employers’ attention?
3) Should I include my hobbies?
4) Should I name my references or say they are ‘available on request’?
You have decided a move is the right thing to do and have earned yourself a job interview at a place you really want to join.
With so much on the line, you owe it to yourself to prepare as well as you can and leave no stone unturned in your bid to come out of the interview having given a good account of yourself.
So, watch this video to learn about setting your objective, how to prepare properly, what techniques to use and what to say at the end.
In Part 1, we spoke in general terms about preparation, attitude and technique as you prepared for – and entered – your job interview.
In Part 2, we will be getting into the nitty gritty of the interview and asking questions like: Where is the fine line between confidence and cockiness?
We’ll also answer questions like: I know I should dress smartly – but can I overdress?
So…how did you do?
