Some tips to help you find a job

1. Get back in touch with your old college to see if they have an  job placement scheme. If you’re serious about finding work you should leave no stone unturned.

2. Take some classes. Today’s emphasis on lifelong learning means you need to show you are someone who wants to learn new things.  Anything is better than doing nothing – Sport or exercise can get you fit; practical skills will gain you confidence, driving is a skill that is needed in many jobs, languages can widen your world and academic subjects will boost your CV. It can give you a whole new outlook on life and work

3 Think about the future. Some industries, like energy and healthcare, are likely to have huge demands for jobs in future.  Do your research to find out where these gaps will be and if it is an industry that you would be interested in.

4 Create your own job. Consider starting your own business, either consulting for your current field or doing something entirely new.

5.  Don’t give up. It may take a while, but the perfect job for you is out there. Remember you are not alone, – Many people have been where you are now, and, if you talked to them, they would urge to not to stop. Be clear on what you want, believe in yourself and keep going.
