How to position yourself on the market

Before starting your job search, it is important to understand your career goals and personality: what is your passion, what are your “natural” strengths? Be realistic in your work/life ambitions. Preparation is key: make sure you have investigated interesting opportunities on the market, and prepare yourself by researching the relevant companies.

Your CV

Your CV is a tool with one purpose: to gain an interview. It should present you in the best possible light and convince a prospective employer that you have what it takes to be successful in this specific position or career. You don't have much time to impress with your CV - research shows that employers scan, rather than read CVs. Before starting your job search, it is important to understand your career goals and personality.
