Getting Nowhere in Your Job Search?

Getting Nowhere?

So, you have been working hard at making it happen but it has not yet fallen into place. Don’t worry, it will.

But you may have to stand back and, with the help of a career adviser, take a look at what you have been doing so far to see what changes need to be made.

Are you spreading yourself too thinly?
Are you targeting too few opportunities?
Have you identified vacancies that are appropriate to you in terms of skills, experience and qualifications?
Are you placing too many constraints on yourself as regards salary or location or, indeed, your chosen career?

Are your presentation skills letting you down?
Is your CV
failing to get you to the interview?
Have you done yourself justice in your
Do you underestimate what you have to offer?

Is it a highly competitive field with many chasing few vacancies?
Are there back door routes you need to investigate?
Do you need to add to your profile or just polish up your act?

Becoming business aware
Business awareness is one of the key skills regularly flagged up by employers as being a skill they need, but which they feel too many graduates lack. Are you business aware?

Whatever the reason that you have been unsuccessful so far, there is certainly something you can do about it. Your career adviser  can help you identify any factors that may be preventing you achieving success and can help you focus on a way forward.
To your job search success
