How to not miss the best opportunities in a candidate led market
The market is currently experiencing more job vacancies and more opportunities across the board than we have seen for a long time.
The expectations of course were a lot more pessimistic for a newly post-pandemic world, so it is with a mixture of surprise, relief and excitement that we steam ahead into a busy market that is absolutely brimming with opportunity!
In times like these, where the market is very much candidate led, the challenge that really arises is how to measure up the options available to you, how to ensure you are not going to miss the best or most suitable roles and keep your finger on the pulse of what’s going on, including benchmarking your pay rates and getting involved with the best projects with the best businesses.
So, how will you manage this and make sure you’re not missing a trick?
Build, complete and update your online profile
When opportunity is rife, a good way to ensure you are in the loop is to ensure your presence is updated and completed online. Making sure your LinkedIn profile and presence on any relevant job boards is complete and always ‘open to new opportunities’ is how you can ensure you never miss a beat.
Registering for job alerts
Whatever your sector, registering for job alerts can be a great way to passively stay in the loop of new opportunities as and when they arise - if nothing else this also allows you to keep your eye on the fluctuating pay rates and ensure that you are benchmarking yourself against the working hours, money on offer and types of contracts out there.
