BUT be prepared to be flexible on the rest of the points on your list. This way you don’t end up with an in flexible, unrealistic wish list which is impossible for you to find.
Update Your CV

Open Your Mind
to new possibilities. Refer back to you Priorities list and remember a little compromise is never a bad thing. At first glance a vacancy may not tick all your boxes but when you step outside the box you might be pleasantly surprised at what’s on offer out there.
on your potential new employer before you go along for the interview. Look on their website and social media pages to understand their business objective and their company culture. Research their competitors, look up their managers on LinkedIn. Make a note of the things you like about them, prepare some general questions for the managers you are meeting and ensure you are ready to demonstrate the key skills they are looking for.
Do NOT go into the interview as the person you think they want to see. Being yourself is the single most important thing you can do. Let a potential employer see your personality beyond your CV so they are able to make a genuine connection with you. Remember that any interview process is not just a one way street . This process is also your opportunity to ask questions, and understand if this job opportunity is right for you.
