Getting Ready to Return to the Workplace


These past few months have seen many employees set up a home office and work from home. 

Some have found it an absolute luxury to work from home. In contrast, others struggle with the whole concept of being away from their corporate office and have to contend with the proclivities of relaxing, sitting on the couch to watch their favourite show. 

If, however, you will soon be asked to return to the workplace where you can still work safely in an open, office environment, then you may need to start thinking about how you’re going to get ready to return to the workplace. With this in mind, I would like to offer you the following suggestions:

  1. Set your alarm to get up early, as if you need to account for preparation, breakfast and travel time. Do this for a while so that you may be able to get in the right frame of mind.
  2. Try getting dressed in your work clothes and then wearing this all day while you work from home.
  3. Have a short lunch break as if you usually would at work, rather than falling into the trap of an extended lunch break while working from home.

Such suggestions, I hope, will help you to be better prepared to return to the workplace. 

However, you may also feel that now is the time for you to start looking for alternative employment. If that’s the case, may I suggest contacting the team at Client Centric (www.clientcentric.com.au), an Australia-wide, professional employment services firm that writes powerful resumes/CVs, tailored cover letters, responses to selection criteria and provide interview coaching. They aim to help their clients secure work faster.

Ways you can prepare yourself now to enter the workforce in Brisbane post Covid-19, by Matthew Coppola


No doubt many will agree that the jobs market in Brisbane is tight, especially given the current Covid-19 climate. But what about post-COVID-19. You may be wondering what you can do now to prepare yourself to re-enter the workforce or even make a career change.

Firstly, I suggest looking at what jobs are available now and will be available in the future. I have written an article on this entitled What can I do when there are so many places online to find work? By Matthew Coppola.

The first step is to get your resume in order. Maybe have more than one CV prepared so that you open up your options to suitable employment. You can write a CV and cover letter yourself. Or get help from a professional resume and cover letter writer based in Brisbane, who will craft for you job application documents that work to highlight the best that you have to offer a prospective employer.

In your search to find those suitable jobs, you may come across positions that ask you to address a set of key selection criteria. Don’t dismiss them! Most roles in Government will include selection criteria as part of the application process. You can address them yourself, or seek assistance from the Brisbane selection criteria writers at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions. This Australian based business has the expertise to write winning responses to any criterion, in any industry.

Getting to the interview stage is half the battle, but it’s a battle worth fighting to achieve. Once you’re in front of the employer in an interview setting, you know that they liked your application and that you have a strong chance of securing the position, which makes it so essential to get it right. You have the option of finessing your interview technique by receiving interview coaching by an experienced coach in Brisbane, Australia who will guide and teach you to build up confidence. Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions offer this service. And frankly, very good at doing so.

Remember never to give up and to stay focused and in control. For my insight on staying focused, please feel free to read this article How to stay motivated and positive despite set backs in securing work, by Matthew Coppola.
