Finding the perfect job is a lot like finding the perfect date, it can sometimes take weeks, months … even years, eek.
After a while, you start to lose faith with the whole idea of getting yourself out there. The confidence you once had has now slowly faded, after all the bad interview experiences over the years. You begin to believe that searching elsewhere won’t do anything, as you believe that you don’t have a chance… Your old dream of settling down in that role you always wanted has now become unrealistic, and you believe that staying in this comfortable position is … well … comfortable and that it’s best to stay there.
All you need in this situation is a big boost of confidence, an assurance that you can find just what you are looking for and get some well-needed help and advice along the way.

Let us set you up with your perfect role!
Your dream job is just around the corner, and we all know you must kiss a few frogs before you can finally find the ONE.
Making yourself available…
You have finally realised that it’s time to move on, you want that old weight lifted off your shoulders to start fresh and get your confidence back!
As we all know, first impressions mean a lot! In both dating and interviews, nothing is more important than standing out from the crowd.
Let us be your stylist!
Ensuring your CV is dressed to impress.
Your CV is your advert and you want it to grab a potential employer’s attention immediately. Just like meeting someone for a date for the first time, if you don’t like what you see you’ll likely get the cold, boring date you surely didn’t want, or even worse .. be stood up.
But in this case, if your cv doesn’t impress the employer … it will most likely be deleted.
Our first step in working with someone looking for a new job is to find out about their experience, what they are looking for in their next role and understanding their longer-term career aspirations. Following this, we will then review their CV and offer advice as to how they could improve it to ensure that the first impression is a great one!
With so many options in the market, we can help you narrow the field.
We can identify roles best suited to your experience and aspirations.

Making your move…
You’ve found that role that makes your heart skip a beat, the butterflies are back, and you feel a glimpse of positivity for the near future of your career. But now you must make a move… the dreaded ordeal of turning your decision into reality. You don’t want to come across too eager but you want to show yourself in your best light.
Making companies want to get to know you!
We are here to promote you to potential employers. We will approach the right people to advise why you would be a good fit for them, why it would be a good idea to meet you and ultimately, we will help you stand out from the crowd!
As your ‘matchmakers’, we can help arrange and prepare you for the big day!
Whether you are confident with interviews or not we will be able to provide you with some specific guidance on your interview. Advising you on the type of people the firm/Partner typically looks for and the skills they would like for you to demonstrate. Also providing some idea of the types of questions the firm typically asks so that you are one step in front of your competition!
Portraying yourself in a confident and professional demeanour is always important throughout an interview. But being able to define your goals and objectives when meeting with a potential employer can really put the cherry on top of an interview.
When speaking with candidates in preparation for interviews, we often find that 2 out of 3 candidates are unable to define their key objectives. Most people are good at explaining what they need to get across in the meeting and what they want to learn about the company, but they are unable to clearly define what they want this to lead to.
Knowing just what to say can help make an employer fall head over heels for you!
We have a blog post perfect for preparing for an interview: Attending Interviews – What are your main Objectives? https://www.levitaterecruitment.com/interview-preparation-advice-what-are-your-main-objectives-2/
