Job market success

  • Taking into consideration the fact that one spends at least a third of his/her day at the workplace means shrugging off feelings of unease is not really feasible as this would only impel stress levels to climb and eventually employee productivity to suffer.
  • The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is one of the most youthful regions in the world. With so many young job seekers and recent graduates competing for entry level jobs, securing an early-career position is a challenge that many people must deal with.
  • Your CV is your gateway to the universe of career opportunities and investing in the right focus, structure, phrasing and syntax at this early stage of the job search process will reap tremendous rewards in opening doors to the next critical stage: the Interview.
  • Honest feedback. That's an oxymoron if there was one. Hand on heart - how many times have you, in the recent past, given 'honest' feedback to anyone around you in the workplace? And how many times has it come back to bite you in one way or another? 'How do you think was my presentation?' Don't ever answer that with a 'You know what would have made it even more interesting.'.
  • Jobs for life may be a luxury of yesteryear but with new opportunities opening up in brand new sectors and more employers increasingly seeking out, or at least accepting professionals with unconventional and rather unrelated CVs, the environment is rife for individuals to explore the topic of career satisfaction in a serious and creative and original manner.
