Be ready to be searching at some point

You have been working in the same business environment for several years? Your dream job just popped-up? or you have the feeling that it is time to say goodie to your employer? As soon as you have the wish to change, you will be confronted with this huge task list: application package, career goals, job search strategy... And this may refrain you from really starting your search. Anticipate this situation and be ready to start your search.

When you gotta search, you gotta search!

Is your progression recognised? Are your efforts duly rewarded? These questions very often show up on your return from holiday or after a tough management review. Then it is time to step back for a second and rethink your professional development.

If the conclusion turns to be “right, my job search starts here”, your focus for the near future is clear: find a job. You may be swept along by a momentous impulse of applying for jobs. Don’t waste your time creating or updating your application package to its highest extent. Just take advantage of this impulse, think about the next steps and focus on the search.

Recruiters expect their candidates to be prepared for the search

When a dream job appears on the labor market, the race starts for recruiters immediately. This is the case in particular for vacancies published online. Recruiters want to identify the right candidates as soon as possible and forward their application packages within the shortest possible period of time.

They may favor candidates with the best chances to go through their clients’ selection process, with a solid application package.
