PLANNING YOUR NEXT CAREER MOVE
When thinking about any big step in our lives it’s usually best to start with a plan; “What do I want and how am I going to get it?” This isn’t always such an easy thing to do, so to help you figure out what to do next, here are some things to consider:
- Do you stay in the same industry in a similar type of role?
- Maybe you look at a different industry sector but remain in a similar role?
- Do you break out of your comfort zone and look at a complete change of role and industry?
Whether you are planning to stay in the same type of role or are looking to overhaul your career, it’s important that you are able to recognise a good opportunity when it comes along and consider all available options. Once you have considered there, it will help you to write your CV with that angle in mind – take a look at our CV writing tips here.
We all have different motivations and inspirations. Work means different things to each and every one of us. So, when making a choice about your next career move you need to think about what is right for you and consider the wider impact on your lifestyle. You may want to think about:
- Your home life and commitments – perhaps talk to your loved ones to evaluate your joint lifestyle goals
- Work preferences – What you want to do, who with, what time etc.
- Your financial requirements
- The work-life balance your new role should provide
Prioritising all these factors will show you what aspects of a role you may be willing to compromise on if a great opportunity arises.

Looked After Very Well
“Select were pro-active in finding me temporary work and, as a result of one of their short-term assignments, I was called back by the same company for five weeks and then offered a six-month contract by that company. I was looked after very well by Select, administratively and in finding me work, and I am most grateful for their efforts on my behalf.”

Cannot Thank Him Enough
“I am very thankful for what Select have done for me. At first, I was getting no interviews and literally no hope for any jobs. I applied to Select for an advertised job, which was in my area of expertise and my Consultant thought I was highly suitable for this job and he gave me a chance, so he put me forward. He sorted out all the interviews, communicated well with me and never left me out of sync. I cannot thank him enough for the high standard of customer service and perseverance to get me the job that I am in now!”
