How to kickstart your job search in 2023

Looking for a new role in 2023? Check out these 5 tips to help with your job search.

You can also keep an eye on our website for all our latest jobs:

1. Figure out what you want from a new job

This is a strong place to start. Figuring out what you want from your new job can help guide your search. Defining factors may include sticking to the industry you’re in or industry hopping, pushing for seniority or seeking a role that offers a better work-life balance.

Still unsure exactly what you want in a career? You can take an online skills assessment to see what careers might be right for you 

2. Update your CV

Updating your CV is a great place to start your job search. Make sure recent experience is included, sentences are refined, and skills are hard-hitting. It’s time to start carving out the perfect CV that compliments you.

3. Spruce up your skills

Making sure your skills are up to scratch and ready to display is vital for your upcoming job search. If you have spent some time out of work or in a role where your skills haven’t been actively used it may be time to spruce them up.

Free courses are available through a new online platform hosted on the website, called The Skills Toolkit. The new platform gives people access to free, high-quality digital and numeracy courses to help build up their skills, progress in work and boost their job prospects.

4. Grow your network on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is one of the world’s biggest professional networking platforms. Making the most can go a long way in helping you find your next role.

Building your network on LinkedIn will help narrow your search for a new job – if you’re considering a career change, connecting with professionals in the industry can give you valuable insights into what a career in that field will look like.
