“There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose,
the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to achieve it.”
Napoleon Hill

Essential Tips for the 21st Century Jobseeker:

As mentioned in my first post, we are building a forum for you, mainly where everyone can learn and contribute their experiences within the job market. My personal experience as a recruitment consultant and more recently as an International consultant is that there is undoubtedly an abundance of highly gifted individuals out there all searching for their next career move or simply a new job.

However, the one thing that lets most down is their soft skills and ability to be able to market themselves effectively on a piece of paper. As any recruiter out there will testify, this can be so frustrating when working to targets and monthly deadlines, and you just cannot get the quality you need to secure the deal.

A lot of very good candidates do not get selected for jobs because of this situation as they knowingly or unknowingly do not tailor their CVs for the role they are applying for, and rely on a generic template to get them their dream job. It would seem attimes people can not be borthered with the bit of time it might take in updating themselves on paper and generally improving their skills.

Over the next few posts i am going to go into a bit more detail about some of the most essential job seeking tips you need to learn and develop if you are going to compete within the 21st century jobmarket. Most of this information has come from observing both the business and jobmarket world. Some of it will be what you already know, but i can promise that you will also be gaining a lot of new insight knowledge, ideas and information some of which will blow your mind! So sit back and enjoy the read, as always i look forward to hearing your sucess stories.....
