Job Seeking Tips For The Christmas & New Year Season – From The Recruitment Alternative

We are almost at that time of year again. You may be thinking of pausing your job seeking efforts and picking it back up again in the New Year or maybe you have been considering applying for a new position but feel like you can’t now. You might want to think again! Here are some great job seeking tips from The Recruitment Alternative for the Christmas and New Year season:

Think Ahead Of The Competition

You shouldn’t leave applying for your dream job until next year because that is exactly what everyone else is going to do! Think a head of your competition and adjust your job seeking strategy. Employers still advertise during this period and while everyone else is putting their efforts on the back burner and the competition thins, you can jump in and land your dream job.

Casual/Temp Work

You may find yourself in between jobs at the moment so why not apply for contact/temp work or Christmas casual positions? You could end up working for a company that may just be so impressed with you they offer full time work. Look for alternative avenues to get your foot into the door.

December Rush

As we discussed employers will often advertise during this time of year, especially within December. More often than not their goal is to train up a new staff member and have them ready to go in the New Year. They will also be keen to finalise their recruitment process which puts you in an excellent position to negotiate.

Easier To Reach

With the end of the year approaching staff are less likely to take extended holidays for obvious reasons. This is a great opportunity for you to actually be able to speak to the right person! They will be winding things down, finishing up projects and clearing their calendars. Take your job seeking efforts to the next level and engage with potential future employers, network, maintain contact with recruiters and let them know of your availability and take advantage of the ‘holiday spirit’ that often puts people in a happier mindset.

However, it does also mean that a lot of candidates will be applying for the same jobs, which means competition.

How to stand out from the crowd in BDM?

Having an outstanding resume is the best possible reflection you can offer a recruiter. It’s so important for you as a candidate to make your resume stand out. Be sure to include

  • A strong opening statement or summary – What makes you unique? What can you offer an organization that someone else can’t?
  • List your key achievements – Perhaps you successfully handled all administrative functions when a new company was starting up. Noting this will make an impression far better than just a basic work history. If you have done something impressive why not show it off?
  • Add ‘key words’ – Many Recruitment Consultants and companies scan resumes for specific words and phrases. Try to use some of the language that is in the job ad, as long as it accurately reflects your background. For example, if a Recruitment Consultant or employer is looking for someone who can generate leads and cold call prospective customers be sure to note this in your resume if you have the experience.
  • Note down any program proficiencies – by listing you have previous experience with a program such as Salesforce gives you an edge on your resume. The more skills you have to offer the more appealing your application will be

As a job seeker, you can’t afford to ignore the digital extension of your professional self. Prospective employers, recruiters and companies will most often than not search for you online. If you have a LinkedIn profile, it’s very likely to be the first result they find. If you have an account take some time to freshen it up, if you don’t have one we strongly recommend you set on up! To optimize your profile be sure to:

  • Add a current, clear and professional profile picture
  • Write a ‘grabby’ headline that sums up your skills, experience, highlight specialisations and what you can offer. Here is your chance to publicly share how you’re different!
  • List any links to things you may have worked on previously as examples of your work. Update your employment history to focus on your achievements and projects that you have worked on.
  • Add professional skills and have others endorse you (that can confirm your skills) and this will boost your profile.

Prepare, prepare and prepare some more!

There are so many things to prepare for its easy to get overwhelmed. Remember to keep in mind the following:

  • Look the part – personal presentation is very important. If you’re attending a job interview for a Business Development position you wouldn’t dress as if you’re going to the gym or for a night out. This may seem obvious but you would be surprised!
  • Research the company – know who you are applying to so that you can tailor your resume and be a step ahead if you are invited for an interview
  • Stay organised – if you are in the process of job seeking you will of course be applying for more than one position. By keeping a note of who you have applied with will help you when you receive a call to discuss your application. You can also prepare answers for interview questions and relaxing techniques for nerves during interviews
