You’re chained to your current job. You’re unmotivated. Bored. Plain sick and tired.

‘Well why not look for more challenging career opportunities?’ the little voice inside your head asks. ‘What’s holding you back from busting that ball and chain and get moving?’ that little voice asks.

As expert recruiters we’ve compiled a list of common reasons stopping people from gearing up and securing a new and inspiring job.

  1. You can’t be bothered

At face2face, we get that it takes time and effort to look for new work, but we’re here to help lighten the load. Trust us, we make recruitment straightforward, coaching you, helping with your resume and doing a lot of the hard yards for you. We’re here to get you moving and motivated.

  1. You don’t know what you want to do with your career

You’re not alone. It can be challenging to figure out your next career move when you don’t know what the possibilities are. We’re surrounded by jobs all day, every day and can help you get creative about ‘where to’ next.

We promise to pinpoint all your skills, including the ones we see that you don’t. We’ll help you plan for the short term and long term.

  1. You’re frightened

Deep down inside many people are afraid to look for new career opportunities, fearing rejection. face2face recruiters have years of experience in helping candidates see what their strengths are.

We’ll help you highlight your skills in your resume, cover letter and during interview. We’ll help change the wording on your resume to enhance transferable skills if you’re moving from the public to the private sector or vice versa. Sure, this doesn’t guarantee you’ll land a job the first go, but your confidence levels will be higher and you’ll be able to cope.

  1. You’re confused about how recruitment works

Recruitment can seem daunting, especially if you’ve not been active in the market. There are many steps and processes, and requirements to juggle. At face2face, we’ve got you covered.

We’ll catch up for a tea or coffee and calmly, clearly walk you through what you need to do today, tomorrow and in future. We’ll explain why working with a quality recruiter is going to smash that ball and chain. We’ll steer you to our great free resources that will inspire and get you ready for all aspects of you career search.

  1. You hate working on your resume

No worries. Most people hate working on their resume. It’s not exactly the most fun thing to tackle. Think about that ball and chain and set aside a couple of hours aside to smash out a draft. Then let’s review it together. Our recruitment consultants know how to polish resumes so they shine bright.

We’ll also think laterally about your skills and make sure they’re highlighted in your resume. We’ll introduce you to our free templates so your resume looks pretty schmick too.

  1. You hate the thought of being interviewed by a panel

It’s common to get a bad case of the jitters when approaching an interview, but our recruitment experts will coach you every step of the way. We’ve even written articles for our website on how to minimise nerves, how to be a star at interview and what not to do at interview.

  1. You’re worried your work will find out your looking

Our services are 100 per cent confidential. You have the right to look for work and your boss doesn’t have the right to stop you.

Of course, there’s a time and place to look and that isn’t during the day at your desk (unless you want to get caught!). We’re happy to meet at times that suit—you might even pop by to tell us your story on one of your days off.
