Job vacancies in the UK are down by 70%, but (at least for highly skilled workers) it’s not all gloomy. One of my lawyer clients was made redundant a month ago, and I was pleasantly surprised that he landed four interviews in just one week. He received two highly attractive job offers and had the very nice problem of having to make a hard decision between the two; even though his CV was not a perfect match for either of the roles.
Another career coaching client landed an attractive CTO role in a tech start up.
Exceptions from the rule…?
Maybe, but companies ARE still hiring and as employees are less willing to move jobs right now, some employers struggle to attract talent.
Yes, for many jobs there are more candidates per role now, and this means that standing out from the crowd will be even more important than ever: through your CV, Linkedin profile, taking initiative, networking, interview skills and attitude.
