How To Prepare Your 2021 Job Search

As we all collectively wave goodbye to long year that was 2020, many still feel uncertain about what the job market has install for us. Here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative on how to prepare your 2021 job search efforts.

Highlight Your Achievements On Your Resume

Under each role you have listed on your resume, be sure to outline any notable achievements which clearly summaries your results and accomplishments. This will help your resume to stand out from the crowd and preparing multiple copies (depending on the job you apply for), will help customise your application.

Clean Up Your Social Media Profiles

Employers and recruiters will often take a look at candidates social media presence. If there is something on your social media that you wouldn’t want a future employer to see it would be a good time to remove it. In addition to this, having a professional profile picture will help tidy things up. Especially update your LinkedIn profile, making sure your career history is current, any inconsistencies between your LinkedIn and resume are rectified and have a clear and well-written summary displayed.

Have Referees Ready To Go

There is nothing worse than coming towards the conclusion of an application process and having things drag out even further or even fall through because you don’t have referee’s available. Take time to determine who your references will be. Contact them in advance to see if they are willing to be your referee. Have more than two up your sleeve in case some fall-through.

Job Alerts

Set up job alerts for the industry and job roles you are seeking to apply for on Seek, Indeed, LinkedIn, recruitment agency job boards, etc. This means you will be able to apply quickly for the roles you are most passionate about. Be sure to have these alerts set up on your phone and desktop so you don’t miss a beat.

Have You Hired The Wrong Person?

You have placed an ad, rushed through interviews and made an offer because you were rushed? And you have now come to learn that you have hired the wrong person for the job. When it comes to recruiting new team members, hiring managers can be either too busy or have an urgent requirement that means they need someone to start yesterday. Both situations can lead to hiring the wrong person and cause further delays. Here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative to help next time you find yourself in this position:

1. Define The Role

Have a clear picture of what you are looking for both within a new candidate as well as the requirements of the position. Having a list to refer to can help keep you on track and provide an accurate description. This may be a great opportunity to review your previous requirements for the role. Are there any changes you can make? For example, you may have listed against a certain requirement as “must have experience in….”. It may turn out that if the candidate ticks all the other boxes you can train them in this area. Or they could have transferrable skills that would make them suitable.

2. Highlight Your Value

Candidates often look for a work-life balance and cultural feel of an organisation. We spend 8 hours a day or more at work so why not highlight your value to prospective employees. What sets you apart from the competition? What growth opportunities do you have available? You will attract top-quality talent and set the tone of your business from the get-go.

3. Interview Process

Just as much as candidates need to prepare for an interview, so do you. To avoid rushing into making the wrong decision plan the right questions, allow enough time to interview each candidate, tailor some questions to individual candidates especially if something jumps out on their resume and take some notes during the meeting to review during the decision making process.

4. Work With A Recruiter

Many organisations are so busy with daily operations finding the time to recruit is just another thing to add to the list. So why not engage the services of a recruitment agency? If you’re looking to add to your team and avoid hiring the wrong person, The Recruitment Alternative can help! We look at the whole picture to ensure they are not only technically sound but a cultural fit too.
