Job Search Tip of the Month

Know your career goals

Before you start identify what type of job you want. This is particularly important for people entering the workforce for the first time or changing careers.

Talk your ideas over with family, friends or work coaches. and ask them to help you to set realistic goals.

Research ways into your chosen job. Do you have the right skills, experience or qualifications? If not, are there people who can help you?

These steps can help you narrow your job search to positions you are passionate about and have a good chance of making a successful application.
