Perfect career

Its time to get the perfect career in 2022

If you went back to work at the beginning of January without a spring in your step, it may be time to consider that you’re choice of career is not the right one for you. Make 2022 your year and find that career choice that has you skipping into work every day.

This month Perfect Team look at 5 top tips to finding your future career and how a trusted recruitment agency could be the key to unlocking your future.

The importance of a trusted recruitment agency

Career decisions are often daunting and for many of us, the idea of changing our career path or leaving a job is terrifying, even if we are not enjoying it. Stability and security are key when you are considering your career plans and often we put off making the leap in favour of the mundane position we already have.

Trusted recruitment agencies like the Perfect Team are therefore like gold dust. Having career advice and support from a recruiter who knows what they are doing and works in the best interests of the candidate as well as the client can be such a support during a difficult time. A recruitment company will help you identify your skills and support you to look at career options you hadn’t previously considered. Working with a recruitment agency like Perfect Team is great as they will support you to find roles they know you will excel at and be comfortable in, all before you take that leap of faith!

The internet is littered with job boards that host thousands of roles. Yes, your perfect job may be on there, but with limited time and no idea of where to start, many job seekers put this task off as unrealistic and unachievable. When you work with a trusted recruiter, they will support you to find that role without feeling like you are looking for a needle in a haystack.

Top five tips for your perfect career in 2022

Consider what’s important in a role for you

So much of our time is spent at work and when we aren’t there, we are thinking about it. That’s why it’s important to consider what your role entails and whether you would be happy being with that company, in that position for a long time. If you don’t agree with the company values, get bored with the structure of the day or the tasks you need to complete, the role may not be the right one for you.

Always play to your strengths

As individuals, we all have different skills and values that can be incredibly important in a career. Simply choosing a job title based on wage and ease is not going to give you the job satisfaction you will need to succeed. Playing to your strengths, identifying your skills and finding a role to match these will be sure to give you a step up on the career ladder and leave you with a role that you enjoy for a long time.

How do you see your new career progressing?

If you are looking to progress in your chosen career, finding a role with a company may not be enough to support this plan. Ensure that before you take on a role, you find out about career progression, how you step up in the company and what you could see yourself doing in 5-10 years. Not only will this give you a good understanding of your future, but your new employer will be happy with the enthusiasm you have shown for staying with the company.

Explore different career ideas

Don’t just settle for the first position that comes along. There is a world of opportunity out there and careers with companies you may not have even considered before. Don’t get influenced by others to take a role that you may find easy, in an industry that everyone wants to work in. Your skills are transferrable and adaptable meaning you could work in a multitude of industries. It’s all about finding the right one for you and your circumstances.

Identify dream companies you can see yourself working with

Once you have found the perfect industry, it’s time to look for companies you would like to work with. Spend time researching companies to find out their structure, history and values to see if it’s a company you can see yourself working with. Make a list of the dream companies you would like to work for and see what roles they have available that would match your skillset.
