1) Passion

The simplest part of securing your dream job is to make sure you are doing something you enjoy and are passionate about. What is it you enjoy the most about your current job, what makes you tick? By working this out you’ll be able to find a job that you actually enjoy.

2) Speak to a recruiter

Once you’ve figured out what it is you love doing, it can be an overwhelming task to work out how to get your CV out there. Enlisting the help of a recruiter will allow you to communicate your wants and needs and let them go to work finding you your next role.

3) What is your main motivator?

It can be easy to focus solely on money, but it is important to work out what else you want out of your next role. Is work/life balance important to you? Being near home? Flexible hours? Whatever it may be, look for a job that fulfils your needs – the more motivated you are the happier you will be.

4) Use social media

When looking for a new career it is beneficial to get on social media; use LinkedIn and Facebook to connect to recruitment agencies and companies you are interested in, and look out for jobs that they are posting. Just remember to showcase your social media accounts in the right light, focusing on your knowledge, experience and personality.

5) Just go for it!

You’re not going to get your dream job by doing nothing. You have nothing to lose so go for it! Set yourself goals of what you want to achieve and in no time you will have bagged that dream job.
