How to... Job Search in January - Part 2

 

This is the second part in our guide to finding the right – or new job – in 2013.
Brand yourself 
Why not have your own website showcasing your capabilities? 
Research a lead 
You have found a job you like, contacted the recruiter and are looking to take the next step. Make sure you do your research thoroughly. Look at the company's website and run a google check to see what it has been up to in the press. Read articles about the sector it operates in. Be critical. Think about what you would do to improve the business and prepare questions you might want to ask.
Be resilient 
It's easy to be downhearted over Christmas if your job search isn't going well. Don't take rejection personally and remember that a recruiter's needs change, so that no could become a yes. Ask for your CV to be kept on hold in case something should arise in the future.
Update your wardrobe 
Sometimes you need a treat. Make sure you're ready for a potential interview by dressing smart and looking professional.
Broaden your horizons 
Have you considered searching for jobs across the UK or working abroad? Europe and the US are always popular options, but with industry booming in the Middle East, China and India, why not look further afield?
Set your 2013 goals 
Make your New Year career resolutions early. Don't forget to make social, personal and money goals too, and review them monthly.
Relax 
You are now prepared for the January job hunt.
