Find your future
Job hunting

Approaching job hunting can be done in the same methodical way as before; make sure you talk about your softer, transferrable skills to highlight your abilities. For example, even if you are a school/university leaver with no previous work experience, don’t look at this as a negative. Think about your personal experiences and the skills you have learned – share these honestly with future employers and think about how these skills can help their business.

Improve your visibility

Make the most of social media for your job hunting; signing up to social platforms such as LinkedIn where finance companies also post job vacancies. This can help to improve your visibility and allow you to network and access resources that may not be available or limited to you otherwise.

Consider your options

If you find that there are limited opportunities at this time in your chosen career path, consider other areas of work or jobs in other industries, where you can continue to enhance your skills and employability.

Be proactive

Take a pro-active approach towards job hunting; doing research on local companies that you may wish to work with, even if they are not actively promoting opportunities – reach out and share your interest and enthusiasm.
