So, you are not happy working for your current employer and you have decided that now is the time to make and make that change on to a new role that will bring new challenges, excitement and most of all, a change of scenery.
But you face a dilemma.
There are so many jobs advertised out there in the open employment market and so many companies that you would love to work for. But, you have been an IT Business Analyst for the past 5 years and that’s all you really have known for quite some time now.
The first question to ask yourself is “Do I want to find another job in the same industry that I have been working in, or do I want to find a job doing something else?”.
Let’s say you decide that you want to stay practising your current field of expertise, so you search for jobs close to where you live and start applying after you have written your resume and cover letter, then tailor your cover letter for each role you are applying for.
Some candidates also identify other factors that help in their job search efforts which include:
Preference for location
Times/days I would like to work
Skills that I have and achievements that I have attained to
Preference for the industry type of employer
Preference for type of job – part time/full time
These are just a few of the factors that can be considered with searching for a suitable job.
