Market Driven Employment – What jobs to look for!

There is a saying, ‘Being at the right place at the right time!’ This is often mentioned when people who in search of an opportunity stumble upon it due to fate or some would say luck. This can be true for any aspect of your life, including employment. Someone could get a job by entering a coffee shop, reading the newspaper at a dentist appointment or even attending a social gathering. It could happen in the most unconventional and unexpected ways. However, there are times you have to take the conventional route and apply for a job through recruitment firms or in response to job adverts. Whichever way you get a job, one has to ask themselves if they are getting the right job.

Some might say that “A” job is better than “NO” job. We need to begin to change this kind of mentality and focus on a career and not just a job. A study found that recruiters spend an average of just 6 seconds on your resume. Six seconds! Not a lot right? What does this tell you? Your resume must be clear & concise, consistency is key; career longevity is everything especially for senior positions. Learn exactly what you can do to stand out!Not all jobs are the right jobs.

Look at market trends (see below) and find ways to best position yourself as an expert in leading markets (of course taking your passion into consideration). Let’s take energy for example; it is one of the fastest growing industries, not just internationally but locally as well. Wouldn’t it be a great way to be known as the leading civil engineer in energy related projects on the job market? It is important to position yourself as a leader in an industry of your choice.
