It was great to share some job hunting and career development tips on Naga Munchetty’s BBC5 Live show this week with Louise O’Shea, CEO of Confused.com.
Even more fabulous was that my wonderful network kicked in with their top tips that we didn’t get time to share on the show.
Credit to Lisa Dunks, Customer Training Manager at S4 Labour who was first off the blocks (as she usually is!) and gave me the idea of curating the ideas into a quick blog:
“Motivation is so tough – especially when unemployed. Building resilience is important. Setting a couple of hours each day to focus on set targets – such as applying for 1 job a day or researching 1 topic a day will give a great sense of achievement. Also there are loads of great courses which are free for job seekers. Signing up for LinkedIn learning will also help with motivation and standing out from the crowd.”
Wise words. Here is a quick 2 page handout with some other invaluable advice from people who really know their onions when it comes to recruiting great people and developing talent across different levels and in many different sectors. Thanks everyone!
