The perils of moving to a Regional area

Looking for work in a regional area? Can’t find what you are looking for? Resume not yielding  an interview? Are you struggling to get to an interview? Frustrated by the lack of jobs? The Hastings Region is a highly sought-after place to live and as with most regional towns, finding the job you want, let alone a job, is often tricky. It requires some creative thinking, not just on how to apply, but also the type of work that might suit your skills set. It pays to continue your research on job web sites well in advance to the move. It’s important to gain a feel for what types of jobs are in demand. It also helps you re-consider the variety of jobs that you may be prepared to perform. An integral part of the research needs to encompass the big employers in this area and the main source of wealth for the region. You probably are already aware that Health; Education, Retail; Building and construction are some of the main employment areas. Now is the best time to reinvigorate your RESUME. Really review it! Does it still reflect your old life? the one where jobs were easier to get? Is your current resume one that is irrelevant for this new regional experience?  Study it and study it hard as this is THE main way to gain an interview. You will want a resume that opens doors, not one that closes opportunities! There are a few private recruitment firms, however their duty is to source the best employee for their clients, therefore candidates will need to match the skills/ experience and knowledge required in the job advertisement. Some residents do travel extensively for work, some commute weekly or even daily  to Newcastle/ Kempsey/ Taree and some even as far as Sydney. If you are able to set up a home office, there may be opportunities to work remotely. It’s flexibility and adaptability that will make or break the transition to a regional community. Most of all, stay positive and expect great outcomes! Ivana Agapiou Resume writer and Career advisor...

Unsuccessful in obtaining that job…

It just may be your resume that is letting you down!!     Here are a few tips to working your way through the disappointment of not being successful in obtaining that job! There are varying levels of unsuccessful… your application may have been culled at the written stage, or at the interview stage. Either way, it will have an impact on you. Sadly, all too often, many employers and agencies don’t even inform you of the outcome. Applying for a job is an emotional, financial and an investment in time – all valuable! You will have quite a bit of “buy-in” and your care factor and anticipation rating is usually high. Let’s assume you made it to interview and you really gave it your all! You walked away feeling confident, but sadly, you got “the” dreaded call that announced you have been unsuccessful. What can you do to lessen the trauma? Here are some strategies that may help. Ask what you could have done to improve your application Don’t get angsty, negative or nasty with the messenger, remain polite and courteous NEVER call to “have a go” ask yourself first “what is the point?” “ What will be achieved by upsetting them?” Remember that all interviewers perceive candidates differently and often they make final decisions (rightly or wrongly) based on gut feel. Sometimes feedback is minimal if not, completely absent, just soldier on and know that you were successful at obtaining an interview and that means that many were not. Research has shown that out of 100 applications, there will only be 4 or 5 that make it to interview – so you were chosen! Sometimes candidates more accustomed and experienced at being interviewed pipped you at the post, this does always mean that they are the better applicant. Practice and fine tune your interviewing skills! Treat yourself.. spoil yourself…eat a chocolate – whatever floats your boat call a friend – debrief and most of all – RELAX! Lastly and most importantly, send a thank you card or letter…. This will form a further positive memory of you! Ivana Agapiou Eather Recruitment and Labour...
