With the New Year period just arriving, employees and jobseekers across the nation are considering their options. The New Year period can offer jobseekers many opportunities, with a swell in the number of positions advertised. But instead of sitting back and letting another year pass you by, think about the best ways to improve your working life and career. Here are a few simple suggestions for making the most of your New Year’s resolution to find that perfect job…

Think about your options realistically. Are you qualified for a specific job? Do you have the requisite experience? Jobseekers and those wanting to advance their careers should always be realistic about what’s missing form their own CV. By acknowledging the gaps, you can set goals and get ahead the proper way. Education and further tertiary studies should be explored, as well as any relevant work experience which may be attainable. By starting out the New Year with a fresh set of realistic goals, you’ll be striding forward in no time at all!

Take the holiday period to perfect your CV. The holiday season is filled with fun and laughter, but potential jobseekers should take some time off to simply perfect their CV and cover letters. This can often be quite time consuming, and once your day job starts up again, you’ll be hard pressed to find another spread minute. Don’t capitulate and get on top of your CV today!

Start a new job seeking regime. If you’ve been unemployed for the previous year, use the holiday season to liberate yourself from the yoke of service providers and an overly taxing welfare regime. If you haven’t got meetings booked for a month, use the time to find the job that’s right for you. Without all the stress and pressure, you’re likely to happen upon something good. Get in the habit of searching for jobs on a daily basis, whether it’s online or through traditional mediums. You don’t have to apply for a forty jobs (that’s pointless), but you just might find your ideal position.

Good luck in the New Year and always remember to give it your best shot!
