Use tech to your advantage

Consider the value of contract work

In an uncertain job market, more contract positions tend to be available as cautious employers are more likely to look to onboard temporary resource before committing to a permanent hire. Contracting is a fantastic opportunity for you to gain exposure to multiple industries and acquire new technical skills along the way. You may find the flexibility suits you, or it could be an excellent way to and get a foot in the door with a great employer.

Give your LinkedIn profile a boost

Use this time at home to be as active as possible on networking platforms such as LinkedIn. Switch the settings on your LinkedIn profile to let recruiters and employers know that you’re actively open to job approaches – this means your profile will turn up on active searches related to your field. This way it is far more likely that a recruitment consultant will reach out to you with exciting opportunities that you wouldn’t have found through active job board searches. Take a look at 5 LinkedIn updates you can make today.

Want to go the extra mile? Be bold and post on your feed to say you're actively looking for positions, including the type of role you're looking for, detailing your key skills and experience. Ask people to get in touch with you to view your CV.
