Friday the 12th of August.
Still in bed.
Yikes. You wouldn’t ever guess that I’m actually a motivated, determined (and extremely well behaved) University Student. But I am…take my word for it. Don’t judge me from my un-brushed hair and my all too familiar blanket cocoon.
This is probably going to sound kinda crazy but I’ve always had some sort of affiliation with job hunting. Even if I’m not searching for a job, my recent google history will tell you otherwise.
I’m starting my final year of University in September which means that my little old stressy bubble of a brain means that the perfect time to start searching for jobs is…well…now.
There’s something so comforting about sitting in bed with some snacks, your fave tunes blaring from you ipod and your fingers rapidly searching on your laptop for that all important dream job that you just HAVE to have. I mean, you have to…it’s all you’ve ever talked about since the age of 10, right?
I’d always heard of job websites such as Indeed and Guardian jobs etc…but then I came across Spotlight Recruitment. This is a recruitment agency that specialises in marketing roles, and basically..all things that us bloggers love. It’s so great to have a website that only provides you with jobs that you’d ACTUALLY be interested in applying for.
Now, because I’m fabulous and love to help a buddy out, I’ve made a TO DO LIST to help with job hunting. This is a job hunting OBSESSIVE you’re dealing with. So this advice is hard to come by.
1) MAKE IT EXCITING.
This is your future career we’re talking about! Something you could be doing day in and day out. Look for jobs that you will love and instead of feeling dread, you will be filled with excitement and joy.
2) Keep track on which jobs you have applied for, or which ones you would like to apply for.
The more cute notebook lists the better!
3) Make your CV the best thing you’ve ever laid eyes on.
Make it possible for someone to fancy the pants off a CV. Ha, weird.
4) If you’re rejected from a job, ASK WHY.
This could help you with applying for future ones.
5) BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
Apply for every god damn job you find. Over estimate yourself. Just GO FOR IT, because you just never know.
I hope my little pointers, the useful Spotlight Recruitment website and my Friday motivation will guide you in the right direction.
Do YOU have any advice for ME?!
Comment below and I’ll be sure to take in on board.
