It’s been a while since my last blog post.
Life during pregnancy, being a new parent, and a whole tonne of other stuff has just got in the way.
Fast forward 2.5yrs and I’m starting to come out on the other side. A lot has changed within 4-weeks so now, my goal is to bring as many resources as I can to you……right now! I promise.
These are difficult times as we head toward 2 million people unemployed in Australia with similar outcomes world-wide.
I know many of my readers and clients are aware of the importance of networking and looking for “opportunities” instead of “openings,” but the speed of change means that many of you will have a more immediate need of work.
So, I’m pulling together some resources of where I know the action is happening. More on that in a second.
But first, what you can do to help? Please ASK RECRUITERS you know to use the #NowHiring hashtag on LinkedIn and beyond when they post a position! This will help me curate content.
Now, quickly before I deliver some juicy content! When you apply online for a position without a referral, you will be most successful if you have at least 80% of the qualifications. Please remember this.
