Part 12 of our job searching tips.
MAKE SURE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS ARE UP-TO-DATE.
you need to make sure your qualifications up-to-date and correctly referenced in your CV. Remember may expire and need to be re taken. For example do you need a new CRB check? Is your First Aid certificate current? Are you sure of your knowledge of the mortgage market or the latest legal rulings in your field of corporate law? If you can afford it, now is a very good time to take the latest courses and exams to keep up.
If you have been made redundant you are legally entitled to time off for job hunting and also for training. Speak to your employer.
