Find your ideal job
Finding the perfect job while maintaining a good work/life balance takes time and energy. So be patient.
Here are three key areas to look at when putting together your action plan:
Be clear in your own mind about what you have to offer employers. It is essential that you are clear not only about this, but also about what you want and what you are worth. We recommend that you put together a career plan for both the short and medium term so you can measure your progress as you go along.
Know your target market well
Identify potential employers for speculative applications
Position yourself, understand fully your prospective employer's expectations and adjust your approach accordingly
This is all about identifying and implementing a strategy that will support your goals, for example, using an application form if the employer has requested applications are made this way, or using your professional network to find out as much as you can about the employer and even the role.
