  Congratulations! You’ve landed an interview and could soon be taking the next exciting step in your career. But there’s a problem. The interview is scheduled at 3pm – exactly the same time as an important client meeting – a meeting you’ve spent weeks preparing for. Even though many interviews are now increasingly being conducted remotely, it suddenly dawns on you that you’ll need to...

  With so much uncertainty about what tomorrow will bring, it is understandable that many people may be feeling anxious about their job security. However, there is also every reason to be hopeful and optimistic. The pandemic is revealing a world of new opportunity and a new era of work. It will be different, but that doesn’t mean it will be worse. Of course, feeling anxious at this...

  We all know that applying for a new job can be a time-consuming and sometimes all-encompassing task. It’s one that requires dedication, concentration and focus, and that extends to the seemingly minor details – for instance, checking and double checking each element of your application for spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, formatting and consistency.   Neglecting this...

  Alongside the many challenges that we are facing as a result of the pandemic, we are hearing of some amazing innovations and collaborations, as people join together with a common aim. We have seen examples of F1 competitors sharing their expertise so they can design and manufacture medical ventilators in record time. We have seen businesses openly sharing details...

  If you’re reading this blog because you’ve recently been offered (and have accepted) a new job, then congratulations! You’ve done the hard work and secured a new role, and the next exciting step in your career is officially in the pipeline. But if, by accepting the new job, you’ll need to leave your current one, then this may add an element of stress or worry. After all, resigning...

  The dramatic changes brought to our working world by the pandemic crisis led to an overnight increase in remote working. However, as we transition into a new era of work, rather than returning to ‘9-5’ office-based work, remote work is looking likely to become far more common. After all, in the last few months, employers and professionals have realised that many traditionally...

  If you’re currently preparing for a remote job interview, you may be feeling concerned that it could be more difficult for you to assess whether the opportunity is the right one for you. After all, when interviewing remotely, you won’t have the opportunity to meet the people you’ll be working with face-to-face, visit the organisation’s offices and generally get a feel for the...

  To categorise 2020 as a ‘stressful year for most people’ would be an understatement. Some have been ‘shielding’, separated from their friends and loved ones. Some have been placed on alternative working arrangements, whilst others have seen an increase in their normal day-to-day workload. It’s likely that every one of us has struggled – at least to some degree – with the phenomenal...

  Data suggests that women have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic in terms of redundancy and the amount of time they are committing to domestic and educational responsibilities. But there are also some emerging employment trends that could open up new and exciting opportunities for women. The pandemic has caused many employers to challenge their assumptions about work...

  Admit it. Your new job just isn’t living up to expectations. On paper, it should be everything you’d hope it would be – after all, you’re now in a more senior position, working on more exciting projects and even being better financially rewarded than you were in your previous role. Why, then, are you just not enjoying your new challenge? Perhaps you’re even finding yourself...

  You are going to have job interviews. Maybe that won’t be for a while, maybe you are preparing for one right now. Your next interview might be for an external job, about a promotion, with a recruiter or in a new country. Whenever and however that interview happens, it’s unlikely that you are looking forward to it. That feeling of being bombarded with questions, of being the suspect...

  If you’re actively looking for a new job, it’s more than likely that you will have applied for multiple opportunities, and therefore may well be interviewing with multiple different employers. It’s also likely that during one or all of these interviews, you will be asked by the interviewer if you are currently interviewing with any other employers. Although this is a seemingly...

  Most jobseekers understand the importance of showcasing quantifiable evidence of their skills and competencies on their CV. Stating the percentage increase in new sales, clients or website visitors that you were personally responsible for, for example, serves to demonstrate to a potential new employer your expertise and the value you could bring to their organisation. Such outcomes...

  Networking: a word that drives fear into the heart of many introverts! That’s often because many still have a stereotypical view of what networking means. Such as working a room and making a strong charismatic first impression in a time limited situation. This is a very narrow and outdated view of networking in our current world. Of course, now, in the midst of a pandemic, being...
