Load up your CV. Make a few changes for your most recent role.
Start applying. Get job interviews. Get job offers.
Sounds really simple. In theory it is. In practice it’s not.
As part of the hiring process those making the decisions want to know what you have to offer.
What surprises me from working with clients and hiring myself is that many accountants and professionals don’t take the time or know how to determine what they can offer.
And of course what you have to offer needs to fit with what the hiring manager is seeking.
For that reason it’s vitally important that you take some time to build up a picture of what you have to offer.
Some of the headings that you might use in building your picture include:
- Technical skills
- Interpersonal skills
- Management skills
- Leadership skills
- IT and digital skills
- Business skills
- And many others…
Doing this has several advantages:
- It helps you decide what to apply for.
- It helps you to market you effectively.
- It helps you to sell yourself effectively in job interviews.
- It builds your confidence.
- It helps you to communicate your value more effectively.
So over to you. Start building your picture of what you have to offer your next employer
