The key to success in any job hunting process is preparation, the more you prepare, the better the outcome will be. 

As IT recruiters who have been working in the field for close to 20 years now, we’ve learnt and understood the requirements of employers for different roles.

Top tips to keep in mind while looking for a new job:

  1. Market research: Ensure to explore all the different job boards, LinkedIn job adverts and specialist recruitment agency websites to understand what the current market can offer. This research will help you determine the level of demand and will also help you weigh out your options from the get go.

  2. Narrowing it down: Once you’ve created a list of jobs you’re going to apply to, it’s good practice to research the companies well and also study the given job descriptions.

  3. Tailoring your CV: This is an extremely step in the process. As a candidate applying to different jobs in the market, you need to modify your CV to highlight the relevant skills and work experience based on the job at hand. A generalistic CV will not work for you. You can find out more on best practices in our blog on A Guide To Writing Your Perfect tech CV.

  4. Interview preparation: Your CV has been shortlisted for an interview? Great! Now as mentioned earlier, company research would be key for the interview processes. Find as much information as you can on the employer, as this will highlight your interest in the role. 

    Another key pointer when it comes to the interview rounds is preparing your own questions to ask the interviewer. All employers look for these questions and often determine your interest through these questions. Here’s a handy guide on the Top 10 Questions to Ask During an Interview.
