Relaunching your career
Date: 08/20/2013

Relaunching your career

We all say we are going to give our careers a relaunch, but how many of us actually do it? If your current career is holding you back, getting you down or just not doing enough for you then maybe it's time for an exciting new professional challenge.

It's not always easy to make that move and it will require tenacity, confidence and ambition to take any new journey, but don't let that put you off. Here are a few essential tips about how to relaunch your career.

Which Path to Take?

You may want a completely different role but within the same industry, in which case your knowledge will go far and you'll need to be willing to learn on the job or consider more training. You may want the same role as you currently have but in a completely different industry, so you'll need to highlight your existing skills whilst demonstrating your passion for the new industry.

Be ready to answer any questions about why you want to make a change. You'll need to be able to demonstrate willingness and enthusiasm and as much background knowledge as possible.

Prepare Your CV

Your CV is the bridge between you and your new job so it needs to show you at your best. Any new course or other training or roles you've performed since your last update need to be included. If your CV is too long, try to shorten it. Ideally, a CV should be just one or two pages.

If you really want a job, your CV needs to be tailored for that role. It might seem time-consuming but it really does pay off in the end. Employers can see when someone has made the effort.

When you feel ready, email your CV to recruitment agency Cambridge, Pure Resourcing Solutions, Make sure you register and sign up to get our Job Alerts coming directly into your email inbox - also check the website regularly. You can also view the latest vacancies through Twitter.

Have a Professional Online Presence

Employers now use more than just CVs to check out future employees — they also look them up online. The first thing you need to do is Google yourself to see what comes up. Keep your social media accounts as professional looking as possible and avoid any pictures or comments that could be considered negative by an employer. The best social media site for professionals is LinkedIn, where you can also network with other professionals and showcase your skills and experience.

Believe in Yourself

It’s easy to take your skills for granted and forget how valuable they actually are to employers. Try writing a list of your skills (even the ones you think aren’t important) and focus on the ones that you think best suit the kind of role you’re looking for.. If you are struggling, speak to a colleague or friend who can talk you through them from a new perspective. Don't be afraid to state that fact that you are looking for something new and project a sense of confidence in this. Word may get around to the right places.
