Where to Start
OK, you have decided you need a new job and you aren’t going to put it on the back burner any longer. So, where do you start?
The first thing to do is register on the Gold Group website. Once registered you can submit your CV, apply for jobs and sign up for email alerts to the latest jobs we have on offer.
Alternatively, just give us a call and have a chat with one of our consultants. They will have a chat with you about your current situation and see what we can do to help. If relevant, they may also be able to talk to you about roles we have available and get you registered with us.
Search, search, search
Once that’s done, there are a few different approaches you can take in order to boost the likelihood of finding that perfect job including:
- Search job boards – there are many job boards available that you can sign up to or browse for positions.
- Industry publications – newspapers and industry publications are another great source of roles that are available.
- Search by employer – many people think of companies they want to work for and then approach them directly, or apply to specific roles on their website.
- Leverage your contacts – most professionals have a fairly large network of contacts, even if they don’t realise it! Speak to colleagues, friends or old work mates and ask around for information on positions that suit your skills.
Whilst applying to hundreds of roles may seem like a great idea, you are actually giving your CV to a different recruitment company each time you apply and this can mean lots and lots of phone calls for you to handle discretely whilst at work. You also need to allow enough time to tailor your CV for each job you apply for.
Our advice would be to carefully select only one or a small number of reputable recruitment consultancies and work at jobs they have available.
