Are you currently looking for a job and struggling to find something suitable to you? We have put together five top tips to help you maximise your time better while finding the right job for you.

  1. Adapt your resume and cover letter to fit the job you are applying for: Use the words from the job description in your application and state why you are suitable for the role.
  2. Network: Many people find employment through people they know. Tell your friends and family that you are looking for a job.
  3. Cold call: Visit, ring or email companies you would like to work for. They don’t always advertise positions, and they may be impressed by your interest and initiative.
  4. Keep learning: While you are looking for a job, keep studying or do work experience. These are some things that may give you an advantage over other job seekers.
  5. Stay positive: Remain positive during your job search and maintain your health through exercise and eating well.
