Beginning your New Year job search

Published on: 6 Jan 2016

It’s that time of year when many people begin reassessing their career. If you’re looking to start 2016 with a new job then read our top tips to get you started:

Online profile: Before you start applying for jobs tidy up your online profile. Recruiters will check you out on social media in the selection process so it’s a good idea to make sure your privacy settings are secure and only show what you want a recruiter to see.

Tailor your CV: When applying for jobs make sure you tailor your CV; sending out a generic CV will not get you anywhere in your job search. Ensure you draw attention to your relevant experience and skills to the job description in your CV.

Get headhunted: Upload the most updated version of your CV to the GAAPweb talent pool. 100s of recruiters search our database each month. Keep your CV up to date as many recruiters will only search CVs within the last few weeks.

Set up job alerts: Stay ahead of the competition and register for job alerts. We’ll email you relevant jobs every day.

Stay organised: Keep a spreadsheet of all the jobs that you apply for.  If you’re called for an interview you want to immediately know what job they are referring to and be able to identify the CV you sent.

If you’re CV is ready to go, upload to the GAAPweb talent pool today.
