If you are a job seeker or looking to change industries it is important to be educated and qualified before even applying. We have constructed a few useful job seeking tips to help you in your endeavours.

Research the Industry

You need to know as much as you can about your industry. A simple Google search can give you a range of useful information but dig deeper to ensure the information is correct and your knowledge is sufficient for an interview.

Get Qualified

Gain qualifications appropriate to the job role you are seeking. You will also need to research what certificates or degrees you need. It may be useful to phone someone in your prospective employment industry and ask them what you would need for them to hire you.

Get Over Qualified

You need to stand out. Having the same qualification as everyone else being interviewed can leave you stuck in the boring pile. Consider getting first aid training so you are industry ready and taking other courses that can assist you and your resume in even the slightest way.
