We hope you have enjoyed a break and are ready for new challenges. If you are thinking about a career move in 2018, now’s the perfect time to make it happen.
Many people return to work in the New Year refreshed and ready to make changes. That means lots of job opportunities open up. It’s why you’ll see more vacancies advertised from mid-January to late March than at any other time of the year.
Want to fill one of those vacancies? These 4 simple steps will help you kickstart your career:
1) Set your goals – What do you want from your career? A new direction? More responsibility? More flexibility? What kind of role will meet these goals?
Once you have set your goals, you are on your way to achieving them.
2) Update your résumé – Have this most important document ready for when the right opportunity comes along. Checking over your résumé also helps you think about your career – and where you want it to go next.
3) Update your job alerts – Make sure you have a Job Alert set up for the kind of job you want, so you get to hear about new opportunities first (If you have a number of options, create a job alert for each).
4) Update your profile – If you’d like employers to find you, ensure your profile is complete and up to date in carecareers’ People Search , (and on LinkedIn if you have a profile).
OK, now you’re ready! We hope 2018 is going to be a great year for you and your career. If we can do anything to help you advance it, please let us know.
