3 things that I did to secure a job that I love and enjoy!
1. Did a bit of reflection of what I want out of a job. I asked myself 'What do I enjoy doing?', 'What am I good at?', 'How do I want to feel at the end of the working day?'.
2. I only applied for jobs I really wanted. Off course, I do acknowledge that I was in a rather favourable position to do that. I already had a pretty amazing job so I knew that I would only ever consider opportunities that ticked all the boxes for me and I was genuinely thrilled about. Nothing short of ideal was good enough.
3. I was honest when communicating with the interviewers what it is I need out of a job. The way I look at it, you interview the company just as much as they interview you. It was my job to communicate what I could bring to the table and it was up to the hiring managers to convince me why their business is worth my time. Don't forget to communicate clearly what it is you want. For me it was career progression, flexibility, opportunity to grow and develop.
