JOB SEARCH

Keep looking and applying for jobs for which you have the appropriate skills. Before applying for a job, find out about the company offering the job by asking others and looking at their website. An employer will be impressed if you know about what the company does, but also you need to satisfy yourself that they are a company where you would like to be employed.

 It has been suggested that you will have a better opportunity by working through an employment agency that knows how to market your skills, rather than going directly to the company. Also the employment consultant may suggest revisions to the way your CV has been written – but you have to provide the right information to the employment consultant.
