I really love the fall! There is just something so warm, comforting and inviting about this time of year. There is just something so warm, comforting and inviting about this time of year. Plus I hate being cold so a season where its acceptable to bundle up suits me perfectly!
Many people see the fall as a time to make career moves. It’s not often people will want to change positions in the depth of summer vacation and that usually works well because lots of employers hold off till the fall months to advertise for new roles. The other thing that happens for University students is that semesters end in August and December so this is often an active time of year for many of you to be seeking your first professional role.
Whatever your reason or your career goal, you may find yourself currently in the depths of a job search, on the hunt for a promotion or thinking about getting started with either. If that sounds like you or you just want to learn more about how you can prepare for either, this episode is for you.
Today I am going to share some specific steps you can take to prepare yourself for your HR job search; either to achieve a promotion, a different HR role or land your first HR role. Because as I have talked about before on this podcast, most people start in the wrong place and space with a job search or career change and don’t get the results they want. Finding a great role or that first role might take a bit of time, but it’s not hard once you know what to do and take the necessary steps.
Here are the seven steps to prepare for your job search:
Know Your Work & Life Preferences
Identify Your Location Target
Identify Your Role Target
Prepare Your Package (Resume, Cover Letter, LinkedIn Profile)
