Golden Rules of Jobseeking

To succeed in today’s demanding and ever-changing job market, you must take charge of managing your own career. Developing a self-marketing plan and understanding your market enhances your career opportunities. By adopting a planned and proactive approach, you will maximize your chances of landing the job that best fits your skills and personality and increase the likelihood of achieving your long-term career goals. It is important to work on your Unique Selling Points (USPs) – What sets you apart from the competition? Focus on what you do and how you do it differently or better than others.

Be optimistic, persistent and maintain a good attitude.

Consider all options, think differently – keep an open mind.

Keep focused on what is in your control versus forces beyond your control.
