If you are sat at home just thinking that you aren’t really fulfilled in the job that you have, then looking to get the job that you really want is going to be a bit of a priority, right? But no matter where you are in the job hunt sector, looking for a job and job hunting can be pretty hard work. So here are some ideas and approaches that could help you to secure the job that you want; you never know, you could be on your way to a very happy career.
Create Your Own Job
One of the reasons that you feel so unfulfilled in your current job could be because you should be working for yourself. When you’re able to set the hours that you work and decide what work you do and when then it can be a chance to really live your best life (albeit a pretty hard-working life).
Perhaps you have a business idea that you have wanted to get off the ground; now could be the time, especially if you have a job to tide you over until it is up and running. Make sure that you think through your idea thoroughly, know the demand for what you can offer, as well as look into things like finances and ways to fund it, such as a business start up loan. Make a proper plan and you could be on your way to working for yourself and being a business owner.
Perfect Online Presence
If you want to go down the route of applying for other jobs, then one thing that you should be thinking about doing is making sure that your online presence is spotless. More than ever these days, employers will look up the people that they have invited for interview on social media channels, to get an idea about you before you’ve even met. Are you on channels like LinkedIn, for example? How about how your other social channels look; do they need a bit of editing? You don’t want to raise any eyebrows before you’ve even had the interview, as you want to show them that you can be a good fit for the business.
When it comes to your job interview and applying for jobs in a new and different sector, you might not have any direct experience (or so it would seem). But there are many things that can be seen as transferable skills, so those are the things that you need to be focusing on. If you haven’t been a manager of a team as a job, for example, but have led some group projects, then these are the kinds of things to be talking about, where you have been able to demonstrate skills that will be required in the role. You can make most things that you have done transferable so look at your resume and go through it, as well as thinking about things that you have done throughout your career to help you.
