Have you become a victim? You might have found your golden ticket.

We speak with clients who have really struggled to find a new job. They may have gone through the seven stages of unemployment desperation.

Sometimes they become a victim of their situation. They blame the world for what has happened to them, and most importantly, they stop trying.

Smart persistence is key to finding a new job.
Be clear on your target and consistently work towards it.

Finding a new job is down to you. No-one else is going to find a job for you.

Are you struggling to get job interviews?

A recent study conducted by Steven Lindner of The WorkPlace Group in Florham Park, New Jersey, of 1,000 similar résumés indicated that the top predictor of candidates selected for an interview were those with the most relevant, current and continual work experience. Lindner said it’s best not to list every job you’ve had for the past 35 years on your résumé, but instead to focus on the past 10 years of relevant experience.
