Shining a light on your job search

Do you know what you want to do? We didn’t! Finding the right job and the right career path can be a daunting task. While career events and workshops will have shown the very broad scope of jobs on offer, we know there are many more in the energy industry which you may not be aware of. You could be a consultant, or work on the development of smart grids or the very latest renewable technologies! We have five tips for those looking for a new job, they are written below:

Search – Finding your perfect job isn’t easy, spend time searching across roles, departments and even sectors.

Talk – Talking to those working in the role or the recruiter cannot be underestimated. They can advise from their own experience.

Ask – Ask questions to find out if the role is right for you. It is as important for you to understand the company and the role as it is for the company.

Research – Research the skills and qualifications you need for the role. Knowing the skills needed as well as the company is important in your job search.

Tell – Talk with family & your Careers Consultant as they can help. They know you and what you are good at and can help or advise you in your job search.
