The month of January will see more Brits searching for a new job than at any other time of the year. The main reasons reported to be job satisfaction, money and career development opportunities.
A new year also prompts new opportunities, especially in the fashion industry. Employers budgets can often change at the start of the New Year prompting new job openings and company growth.
Out With the Old, in with the new
Take some time out to give your CV a make-over, consider any experience, projects or accomplishments achieved during the year that you can add, and likewise remove anything that is no longer relevant, try and keep it to around 2 A4 pages, any longer and employers won’t have the time to read it fully.
Make sure you’re up to date with the latest trends on the catwalk for 2017 so you can prove to potential employers that you are current within the fashion industry.
New Year Resolutions
Making resolutions seems very fashionable at the beginning of a new year! But let’s face it, writing down “get a new job” doesn’t quite cut the mustard. Try writing down a few more achievable goals like –
- Apply for 3 jobs a week
- Attend 2 networking events per month
- Meet new contacts and connect with them via LinkedIn
- Register with a fashion recruitment agency
By fulfilling these smaller goals, it will make accomplishing your overall goal of getting a new job a lot less intimidating.
