How to get a new job: Dos and Don'ts

Image
The job search requires resilience, determination and a lot of admin. It may be a candidate-driven market but competition for the best roles remains stiff.here’s some advice on what to do (and what to avoid doing).

Dos:


1.Soul search Before you look for a new job, be sure you’re clear on what it is you want from your next role. Ask yourself why your last job didn’t work out, what elements of work you enjoy the most and what you’re really good at. You also need to think about what you want from your career and what the next steps should be to get you there. Once you have a clear idea you’ll be better equipped to explain it to a hiring manager.

2.Look into your options
Research job specs in different companies to get an idea of the responsibilities and requirements you can expect. Make a hit list of companies you want to target, track their updates online and be vigilant in watching out for any emerging roles.

3.Use your network
Reach out to your contacts to let them know you’re on the hunt an…

10 Ways to Make Working From Home More Productive

Image
Performance matters more than presence, so here are simple ways to get a lot more done in a lot less time.
1. Set a schedule -- and share it with everyone you know.
Interruptions are productivity killers. When you work from home, your family and friends can be the most frequent sources of interruption.
That's why you need to be proactive and share your schedule. Explain when you'll be working. Describe how you work best: Whether that's "interrupt me at will" (probably not) or "only interrupt me if it's truly an emergency" (more likely).
Above all, don't assume people will automatically respect the fact that while you're working from home, you're still working. They won't. Help them understand.

2. Spend a little money where it counts most.
Working from home implicitly means you're a knowledge worker. That means you spend a lot of time sitting. No matter what else you do, invest in a good computer, a good phone, and the most comfortable …
