3 STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL CAREER SWITCHING

 

Career switching is an easy way to boost your pay, because a career switch in the same job sector seems to the employers as a sideways career move where in fact this is a promotional career switch.

The catch is that all employers want you to meet their criteria for their advertised vacancy. Don’t get caught out like other unsuccessful job seekers and record all your current duties on your application.

3 STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL CAREER SWITCHING

STEP 1

To make a career switch is easy. First read the job spec and ensure you fully understand the job criteria.  Obvious I know, but essential

STEP 2

Second target your application/resume/CV to the job criteria; what I mean here is, you may do 10 duties in your current role and the new employer has five of these down as essential criteria. Don’t waste time and space on your application by recording how you do all 10 duties, just discuss the five essential criteria to really sell yourself to the role you are applying for. IE if you’re applying for a managerial role and record your managerial responsibilities

STEP 3 – The Sneaky Tip

Finally, if you’re applying for as an example as a health care manager and you’re currently a nurse. You can change your job title to Nurse/Manager. People make big assumptions on your job title, so if you are currently a nurse and you undertake some managerial duties use the slash icon on your job title. Now the manager will generalise and think your main duties are that of a manager.
