Familiarise yourself with the job market

One of the most important things you can do when you are hunting for a job is to analyse the job market and job opportunities. If you do not find vacant positions you should broaden your search.

There will be jobs that suit you throughout the country. It pays to stay up-to-date on job market trends so you can learn which industries and professions have the greatest need for people right now.

Think about whether:

  • you are hunting for a job in an industry which will employ more or fewer people in the future?
  • there are a lot of job seekers hunting for the same type of job as you?
