Finding your Purpose and Values
Becky Webber from Positive Career Advice partners with Emma Tomes from Tomes Training to talk about finding your purpose to energise your job search. Your values support your actions. They are your underlying driving force and what really matters to you. They can be as simple as equality for all, treating others with kindness, or picking up after yourself. Often your values relate to how you want to be remembered, how you do things and having clear values helps you to make confident decisions about your career. We explore the importance of setting goals and outcomes connected to your purpose and how this will open up meaningful opportunities for you.

During this session we explore: 1. Examining and capture your limiting beliefs. 2. Determining how they have served you and if you are willing to release them for what's waiting on the other side. 3. Creating your new beliefs to help you secure the career you desire. Your next opportunity is waiting for you - What is holding you back?

3 top tips for creating your CV
So to really understand what it's like to put a CV together, this weekend I created mine and it wasn't easy! Looking inwards at yourself is tough isn't it? So, having felt the pain of creating a CV myself, I made this video with my top 3 tips to help get you started. 1. Clarify what's important to you. Get to know what makes you tick, your values and your motivators. I used a mindtools exercise to help me. Here it is - https://lnkd.in/e5JbZ5X 2. Decide what you want to be known for. Employers will not be excited to talk to someone who knows how to do everything, they want someone to fix their specific problem or pain. 3. Consider the layout of your CV and remember to incorporate space. Your aim is to whet the appetite of a prospective employer enough to want to see you. You don't need to include every minute detail of your career. Last tip.... don't wait to be a job seeker to create your CV. It's much easier to compile a CV when in a positive mind-set as opposed to being a job seeker, when you may be anxious and not be sure what's around the corner. #jobsearch #CV #jobseeking #jobseeker #createyourCV
