Course description

Find out how to get into that new role or to get back into the job market if it has been several years since you applied for a job. What are employers looking for? How can you identify and celebrate what your unique selling point is, and present yourself most effectively to a new employer, matching your skills to the needs of the job, find out why your age or apparent lack of recent experience is not a barrier to your being successful in your search?

We will be looking at where you can start job searching and what are the most promising routes. How you can reach out to employers, and produce a stunning CV? Most jobs are not advertised, so we will be investigating how we can tap into this hidden job market and looking at networking and speculative applications.

You might be wanting to take a different career direction, if so, how can you prepare for this and fill in any skills and experience gaps to make you the ideal candidate.

Join us for this interactive session to find out more and be one step closer to getting that dream job!
