Are you fed up of trawling through online job boards for hours on end, only to find 1 or 2 roles that are actually of interest to you? You’re not alone. According to recent research, one of the main factors putting people off applying for new roles is the job search itself. It’s painstaking, time consuming, and often filled with uninteresting or unrealistic job descriptions.
Online job boards aren’t the only way, nor necessarily the best way for you to find your next role. Thanks to the world of LinkedIn and online networking sites, you can make a career move without even opening a job board up on your browser.
The best growth you can experience happens outside of your comfort zone.
Lastly, but most importantly, believe in yourself and trust the process. We know it sounds cheesy, but hear us out. It’s true what they say, that you miss every opportunity you don’t put yourself forward for. So don’t be your own reason for holding yourself back. It can be nerve wracking to message someone you don’t know online, but after a while you will get used to it. You might even enjoy it too... I can guarantee that the person you message also gets anxious when reaching out to someone new, it’s completely normal. The best growth you can experience happens outside of your comfort zone. So make that list, find the decision makers, and start connecting.
