I no longer have a job. What should I do now?

So, you have lost your job or are about to lose your job. What can you do?

First and foremost is not to panic and prepare to start actively applying and tailoring your resume and cover letter to positions.

Carefully consider your skills and experience. Open up your options to jobs that you can do and are willing to do. 

Sure, during periods of a recession or low economic activity, jobs can be scarce.

But stay positive, in control and focused. Get your CV in order by utilising the services of a professional resume writer. They will write up a custom-tailored resume designed to market and promote your skills and experience, even tailoring your cover letter or a general letter that you can edit yourself. 

Try not to rush your job applications too. Employers will notice this.

Securing work during a recession: what you need to know.

13903388778_5b429faf5c_wIt’s 2020, and since the start of the year, there has been much talk about a looming recession.

It’s been decades since Australia faced a significant recessionary period and so many have genuine reasons for concern. First and foremost on most people’s minds are their jobs.

Job security is crucial for living and getting by day-to-day.

During a recession, the jobs market is tighter, and there are fewer positions vacant. People lose their jobs or receive fewer hours of work, with the result being an increase in unemployment, including underemployment and more applicants flooding the jobs market.

So, during such challenging times, it is essential, if not crucial, to stand out from other candidates with a resume and cover letter that draws the employer’s attention and makes an impression. The resume writers at Client Centric have the experience and expertise to write for you a new and professionally written CV and cover letter to help market you to prospective employers.

Then, the next step is to win over the employer during your interview. To help you be more confident in your next job interview, Client Centric also provide one-on-one interview skills coaching.
