Why can’t I find a job yet?
There may be many reasons why you cannot find a job as yet. Here are some tips that might help change that for you.
If you are struggling to find a job, recheck your CV and application form to see if there are things that you could change, update any information that becomes relevant, i.e. voluntary work and gets rid of anything that seems of little interest.
If you have some jobs that only last a few months, this may make future employers uneasy. They are thinking
This person doesn’t appear to stay around too long, not worth investing time and money
make sure you explain why there are so many short-term employment and that you are very interested in working permanently and would love the opportunity of working for them.
If you were a full-time or part-time student, explain this fact, as this will explain why the short-term job roles.
Surviving without a job can be very challenging and stressful, try not to worry and keep focussed on what you need to do. Check to see if you are entitled to any assistance. There are government programs that can assist you with paying your bills for a period, so check out the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to see what benefits you may be entitled to.
While you are unemployed, the best thing you can do is to keep busy. Apply for jobs every day by browsing the papers and help wanted ads, on-line job sites via the internet, drop off resumes in person or via scan directly to potential employers.
If you have left an email address and phone number, check your emails every day and any phone messages if you can make your email as professional as possible with your name.surname@gmail, Yahoo, don’t have a funny or sexy email for job purposes, as it will look like you are not serious about getting a job.
Return phone messages and email contacts from any potential employer straight away; otherwise, it may look like you are not interested and they will go elsewhere very quickly.
Check CV mistakes
