6 Ways to Renew Your Job Search this New Year


Are you growing weary from job searching? It’s time to renew your job search, and come up with a different plan this year.

Follow these 6 tips to transform your job search this year:

1. Examine your resume

Have a look at your resume and make appropriate changes to it. Present an up-to-date resume that best reflects your experience.


2. Utilise social media

Social media is a great resource for job seekers. If you’re not already using it, make it a part of your job search routine. Create a social media plan, and work out which website best suits your needs, whether that be LinkedIn or Twitter or both.


3. Be unique

Find a strategy that works for you. What works for one person may not necessarily work for you. Stand out from the crowd, and find your own style.


4. First impressions matter

Employers now make their first impression of you online, through your online profiles. Ensure that your social media profiles present the best side of you.


5. Improve your networking strategy

Networking is a crucial skill to have, for both job hunters and seasoned professionals. If you don’t already have a networking strategy, develop one this year. If you already have a strategy, work on improving your previous year’s strategy.


6. Develop your skill set

Continue to develop your skills while you look for work. Attend webinars or take short courses. This ensures that your skills stay current, and challenges you to learn new skills. 

Make the most of this year, and get the job that you want.
