Part 45 of our job searching tips.


I often hear people say that other people have all the luck. However, a colleague I use to work with always said in response to that “The harder I work the luckier I get”

Part 44 of our job searching tips. (Wellbeing)


It’s very easy to give up and get disheartened, particularly if you live in an area where there’s lots of unemployment or you are friends with other people who have given up hope.

You must refuse to accept defeat. Keep going – it’s the ones who persist, persist and persist who win in the end.

Part 43 of our job searching tips. (Wellbeing)


It’s not personal its business. Not everyone can get that job, it’s just means that you weren’t a good fit, and better t not get the job that get one where you would not fit in.

Pretty much everyone’s been rejected for a job at some time. The more you can brush off rejection (of any kind), the quicker you will get on in life and the happier you will be generally.

Part 42 of our job searching tips. (Wellbeing)


Most people don’t think about their wellbeing whilst job hunting, but it’s very important as it’s easy to feel down when you’ve sent out hundreds of applications and got nowhere.

Remember, persistence wins the prize and we tend to get in life what we expect. Expect the best and you are likely to get it. However, keep an open mind too. 

If you’re getting rejected all the time it could be that your CV, your application letter or your interview approach need work. Go through these with friends and/or professionals and get their feedback.

There is no harm in asking for feedback as to why you were rejected.  Many companies are too busy to reply but some will.

Do a weekly review of what you have achieved and track your progress, give yourself targets for the coming week and work on things you should improve.

Part 41 of our job searching tips. (Improve your chances)


Don’t limit your searches because of geography! Yes it’s a nuisance to spend half an hour or more in the train or in the car but the more flexible you are, the more jobs you can access.

Some companies are willing to subsidise travel costs, and you may be able to negotiate this in the package.

Part 40 of our job searching tips. (Improve your chances)


Depending on the job you are looking for, you just never know. 

They may seem small and look insignificant but it’s worth a quick scan here and there for a juicy job that’s just down the road.

Part 39 of our job searching tips. (Improve your chances)


Networking isn’t just about business contacts or the people you meet at official events. If you think of all your friends and family – and all the people that they, in turn, know – the chances are that you have already gained a decent pool of contacts.
All you need to do is let them know that you’re looking and they might prove to be very useful indeed.

Your cousin’s neighbour might have just the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

However, you have to know what you are really looking for; have a clear concise once sentence statement of what you want. Anything more will be forgotten by those you tell, and even worse if you just say, “I’ll do anything!”
