Are you looking for a job after a long break, and don’t know where to start? We have compiled some tips to get you started on your job-hunt.
If you have just become unemployed, give yourself time to examine the new situation and relax. However, do not allow yourself to become inactive – you should create a new daily routine. Think about what you could do with your expertise. Do you want to continue with the same type of work you’ve done before, or jump to a completely new field? Is there a clear pattern in your work history, or could the next move determine a certain direction for your career? List your own strengths, areas of expertise and interests. What skills do you have, what are your interests and what are you passionate about? If this topic seems difficult, think about what kind of feedback you have received from your previous supervisors or study place. What are your hopes and goals for the future?
