How to go about finding a job at present

Posted on October 13, 2020 at 4:18 pm

At the moment, finding a job is even harder than ever in most industries. Many companies are having to get rid of staff, not take them on and the number of people who are unemployed at present in the UK is growing. This means that for any jobs that are available, competition is high and they may only need the smallest excuse to discount you over the other applicates.

It is more important than ever that your CV is up to date and that you ensure your covering letter is written emphasising the main qualities you have. It may be that if they are inundated with applications that they only get to read the cover letters before they make their first cull. You need to ensure that your covering letter gets you through this first process.

If you do not mind what job you do then try and think about industries that are still very busy and may me looking to recruit staff such as cleaners in hospitals, office etc, supermarket workers and road repair workers. Often with recruitment it is a bit of a numbers game, so the more jobs you apply for the more likely you are to land a position.
