Get involved in additional activities

This could be anything that you do outside of education or paid work as long as it’s something that will help you become a more knowledgeable or responsible person. It could be extra work experience or helping at a local career’s fair/event.

Getting involved in additional activities is a fantastic way to:

  • gain new skills and develop the ones you already have get more insight into the sectors and industries that you are thinking of working in
  • do work experience that you can add to your CV
  • start building links with employers or industries

Revamp your CV

Revamping your CV can be easy; however, people still stick to the same CV for years. Not updating your CV could harm your chances of landing your perfect job.

It’s important that your CV is the most up-to-date, especially when regulations and technology changes are frequent. Bank holidays are a great time to update your CV with new skills and accomplishments and remove older and outdated information.

Create a schedule to help you focus

The most important job search part is keeping up the momentum. Don’t let the natural slowing of work over a bank holiday slow you down and hold yourself accountable by scheduling your job search. For the best results, set aside time every day (even if it’s only 30 minutes) to search job boards, send applications or network.

Be prepared to be patient

Some hiring processes can often be slow, especially if key decision-makers are out of the office. That means that employers might take longer to get back to you or need to wait for someone to return before a hiring decision can be finalised. Just remember to not be discouraged if it takes longer than usual to hear back from employers. Well done for persisting in your job search during a bank holiday and getting ahead of other applicants!
