(Comment) Permanent link

Tony Wilmot, co-founder of staffbay.com, gives you his Top 5 Tips when looking for your dream job:

  • Make the most of your skills: You learn so many transferable skills in the forces that jobseekers need to keep an open mind about which career they want to follow once they leave. 
  • Don’t underestimate the skills you’ve learned: Just because you were, for example, a mechanic in the forces, that doesn’t mean that’s the only  job for you once you leave. The skills you pick up whilst in service are invaluable to employers.
  • Talk to as many people as you can: Learn from experienced people, make contacts and network. You can open up so many doors simply by building up a good contacts list. These people could be your future employers. Take all advice on board before making a decision.
  • Go to as many interviews as possible: Even if you don’t particularly want the job, honing your interview skills is essential to land your dream job. It’s a small world, and, if you make a good impression, you’ll be remembered.
  • Go the extra mile: Use different ways to get yourself noticed. Preview yourself using media such as video. These are the extra touches that will help you get to the top of the job application pile.
