Beginning Your New Year Job Search

If you’re looking to start the year with a new job then read our top tips to get you started:

Online Profile

Before you start applying for finance and accountancy 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.

Next Steps

You can find more CV advice on the GAAPweb Careers Blog page, including an Accountant CV template and how to write the perfect graduate accounting and finance CV.

If your CV is ready to go, upload to the GAAPweb talent pool today and start your search for your next finance and accountancy job.
