As 2019 fast approaches, is your new year’s resolution to land your dream aviation job?
New year, new career isn’t just a phrase. According to a survey by human resource firm Investors in People, over half of UK employees were set to look for a new job in the run up to 2018. One in four employees felt unhappy at work compared to one in three, who said they did at the same point last year. Are you ready to start your job search in 2019? Below, we’ve included a few tips to get the ball rolling:
Update your CV
We as individuals evolve – your CV should too. Keep it updated with any new and relevant information as you develop in your career, and it should be tailored to every job you apply for. Once you’ve got your CV updated, upload it to a niche site like Aviation Job Search so that employers can find you.
Set up job alerts
You can set up numerous job alerts for roles you’re interested in on our website. That way, we can send relevant jobs straight to your inbox. You can also tailor your alerts by job type, job category, salary and location.
Tailor your cover letter
Don’t forget to tailor your cover letter for each application you send. It should show the employer how your skills and experience match the requirements laid out in the job description.
Check yourself out online
According to a 2018 CareerBuilder survey, 70% of employers use social media to screen candidates during the hiring process. Tidying up your online presence is essential before you start sending out job applications.
Network on LinkedIn
Make sure you keep your LinkedIn updated. This is an extremely valuable tool for jobseekers, so make the most of it. Show off your key skills and get endorsements from past managers and colleagues.
Proof your CV
Don’t forget to check your CV and cover letter for spelling and grammar mistakes – this can really put recruiters off.
Organise your day
