After what has been a challenging and difficult year, you might be considering a change of career – whether this is due to redundancy, wanting to put your skills to better use or simply looking for that perfect role now is the time to do it.
Traditionally the first Monday of the year dubbed ‘Massive Monday’ by the recruitment industry is when companies receive revised budgets and start to look at where new staff members might be required.
We see our jobs soar during January and February with the highest traffic of the year to our website, and even though 2020 has been difficult for lots of employers, many have still thrived and jobs in the tech industry especially are growing.
The New Year is naturally the time of year when you start thinking about making changes – changing your job can often be challenging, but if you plan and prepare it could be the best thing you ever did!
Really think about what your current skills are, and if learning a new skill would give you an advantage. It’s also a good idea to think about that cliché five year plan – what do you really enjoy doing and where do you want to end up? Once you’ve considered all that it’s time to refresh your CV, make sure you use your contacts and social media, utilising all feedback and advice, and of course be persistent and positive.
