The first thing you should do is start networking – involve your family and friends. Ask them to keep an eye out for jobs being advertised where they work. The ‘hidden job market’ is one of the best avenues for your job search. Contact recruiters and recruitment agencies, and register your details and skills. Keep your LinkedIn profile up to date to connect with other contacts. Also, make sure that you review and update your CV and cover letter. Most importantly, always customise your CV and cover letter for the role you are applying for. Make sure that you list all the work experience and your transferable skills that are relevant to the role.
