Finding jobs outside of the UK

Posted on November 30, 2013 at 2:36 pm

Many people like to switch job roles and there are plenty of fresh opportunities in various other parts of the world. Opportunities are out there for British people and because English is one of the most prominent languages, it can mean you don’t need to learn any new languages.

For instance in China, there are many position advertisements for English teachers, yet they don’t need to have teaching experience, or speak Chinese. The jobs in the UK can be similar elsewhere, and just because you’ve worked in the UK for the majority of your life, it doesn’t mean that you are unsuited to jobs in other countries.

If you think you have the pluck to pack up and leave to get the job of your dreams, then make sure you start looking at the possibilities that are out there in other countries.

Posted on November 19, 2013 at 3:25 pm

Many people may need to switch jobs to finally understand where they want to be and what industry they want to work in, yet by doing this too often; can it damage our reputation with potential employers?

Well, in short… Yes, especially if you have not held down a job at all for longer than a year. In the job/career world a year is not such a long time. And potential employers will want to know if you’re dedicated to their position and loyal, and the only way they are able to determine if you are is by checking your employee history.

Of course age can at times be considered, and if you’re extremely young it is quite common to switch jobs to find your feet and know exactly what you want to do.

Job Interview Advice

Posted on November 17, 2013 at 2:12 pm

A job interview is a good chance for a potential employer to paint a picture of you, and perhaps form an idea on whether or not you can work within their company.

Initially, when an individual gets told they have been granted an interview, they are excited. But after a certain period, the nervousness kicks in, and it’s important in the interview itself to make sure these nerves are settled.

Once the interview begins the main thing is to listen as careful as possible, and you should ideally have already done research on the company and the job role. Hiding nerves is not always easy but tiny things such as making eye contact, sitting up straight, keeping hands still and moving as little as possible can make a big difference, it can also help you relax and settle in to the interview.

Job interviews are part and parcel of getting a job, and the more interview you go on, you begin to know what they expect, eventually meaning you become more natural and comfortable.
