Has your job lost its spark? Do you feel like the sparkler that won’t ignite? If so you’re not alone. As Bonfire Night approaches we’ve been thinking about all the candidates we speak to every day who want their spark back. Whether their roles have changed or they feel they have outgrown the company, 100’s of people each day consider its time for them to start looking for a new job.
So where do you start? Best place is to think about why you are looking to move; is it money? Career progression? Or perhaps just a new challenge? Pinpointing your reason to leave can really assist you in finding your next role.
If you’re going to start looking for a new job you need to prepare your CV and your LinkedIn page, remember to keep it factual and highlight your achievements. Register with relevant recruiters who specialise in your industry and understand your skills. Apply for roles that you have a genuine fit to but know you would find your spark in.
And remember that all the best firework displays take months of hard work to prepare so don’t expect your career to change overnight. Finding the right job takes patience, preparation and time but it can be certainly worth it when you find your spark and rocket to the top!
