Written by Sophie Down | January 7, 2015 | 0 Comments
So it’s the New Year, and without a doubt millions of people will be noting their new year’s resolutions. Webrecruit picks some of the most popular goals individuals set, and explores them from a job seeker perspective.

Lose Weight

…from your CV. Maybe your resume is a bit too long, and therefore isn’t appreciated enough by recruiters and employers. Try and cut it down to 2 – 3 pages, and include only what’s necessary for the particular job you are applying for.

Getting Organised

Spend Less, Save More

Enjoy Life to the Fullest

…enjoy your search; it doesn’t have to be a chore. You can learn about your interests and career, so make the most out of jobseeker resources that are available. And if you can’t have that dream job right now, what can you do to get it?

Learn Something Exciting

…get a new qualification or learn a new skill. What is it that you’re missing from your career at the moment that you’d like to learn or develop? There are many courses and qualifications you can take on, to improve yourself and your occupation.

Get 8 Hours of Sleep
