Dear candidate.

In these times, many people seek new opportunities. The pandemic that rages around us has created unrest and unpredictability in our lives. In addition, when we know that in spending one-third of our time at work and this is the one factor that creates predictability on income, it is important that this part is safe in our lives. But there are many who are struggling and we read daily that large, established industries are falling over and have to take drastic steps such as layoffs and layoffs. Many people feel this now and feel insecurity about their own position. You start small by making a choice to start the job search process. Again others sit “still in the boat” and hope that one day it will pass. For those who think today’s job is unsafe, we’ve created some tips worth thinking through:

Your CV

Is your cv up to date? Does it bring out the most important thing you want to say about yourself? is the language simple and understandable? Do you write just the right distance? Are your references ready? Are they good enough? Do they bring out your personal qualities, your value contributions in the role you had? What would they say about you if a recruiter called them? Have you clarified with them that it’s OK that they’re still making references and what do they really remember about you?

Put down any questions you have about the company? Think about what kind of questions you will get and what you answer. I’d like to write them down.
