Time to review your career plan?Is now a good time to review your career plan? Here are some suggestions to help motivate you:
It has been a pretty traumatic year for European jobseekers what with the uncertainty of Brexit and now a global pandemic; however, we want to assure you that there are Employers out there still recruiting and looking for language speakers!
So perhaps now would be a good time to review your career plan? Here are some suggestions to help motivate you:
Update your CV
Add your latest role and any new skills; make any tweaks that are necessary. Often Employers won’t look at CV’s that haven’t been updated in the last 3 months, so even if you haven’t changed jobs, make an amendment so your CV will move to the top of the list.
If you are thinking about moving into a new sector or embarking on a different type of role, carry out some research and see what Employers require. Search for your dream job on different jobboards and compare and contrast. There may be a different emphasis on what experienced is required or desired depending on level, sector or even language requirement.
Brush up on your skills
There are many online resources offering free trial or free access such as the Open University so you have an ideal opportunity to improve language skills or even learn a new one!
Perfect your interview technique
With many Employers looking at online interviewing now is not the time to be camera shy. LinkedIn have some great video tips.
Look after your mental wellbeing
This should go without saying, but as per the reasons cited in the introduction it will have taken a bit of a battering over the past few months. It’s easy to forget to take time out to look after yourself so do have a look at the NHS advice and take on board their suggestions, this will leave you healthier and happier and in the best frame of mind to embark on that career change.
