10 Tips for landing your dream job

Is there such a thing as “finding a dream job in Cyprus”?

Well, for some people the definition of “dream job” implies a lot of things… for example: being happy at the workplace, work culture, working hours and flexibility, the benefits you get, salary expectations, career progression and more…

If you’re feeling unfulfilled and unmotivated at work, landing your dream job may seem impossible, but with the right preparation, it can become a reality.

So, are you ready to take the next step in your career? Let’s see how to find a job in Cyprus!

1. Know what you are looking for

Before you begin job hunting, you need to be sure of what you want, whether this is a salary increase, or a complete career change. Don’t waste time looking for jobs that aren’t a good fit for you, and if you know exactly what you’re looking for from the start, you’ll be able to make the best use of your time.

2. Don’t get trapped into something you don’t want

You do not want to be one of those people who get stuck in a job they don’t want. Stick to your guns when it comes to the career path or company you want to work for; and chase it! 

3. Do ask for a job description

Always request a written job description; you may need to refer to it if you believe the job you accepted is not what you were promised. Having a clear job description from the start will help you and your employer avoid any misunderstandings. 

4. Know your strengths and passions

One of the most common and critical questions during interviews is to demonstrate your strengths and interests. This helps employers to decide whether the candidate is a good fit into their team and, more importantly, have the drive to succeed. Remember, you’re selling yourself and pointing out why you’re the best choice for their company. Equally, you must identify the most important things that you are searching for from an employer to enhance your career and general happiness at work and put your questions into action to identify if the role and employer are the best fit for you – the interview is a two way street! 

5. Do your research

Researching the company is a given, but keep in mind that looking for your dream job in Cyprus can sometimes lead to the opportunity to relocate, especially if the company is multinational. Though this is a great opportunity to see new things and meet new people, it is critical that you research your potential new hub. Being unhappy in your current location can be a deciding factor for your career success.

6. Get help from recruitment agencies

Do reach out to recruitment agencies to help you find your dream jobs in Cyprus, but don’t expand your options too much, as this can cause hassle and possible duplicate applications to employers if using too many recruiters to represent you. 

7. Keep all of your agencies updated on any job news

The best way to keep a good relationship with recruitment agencies is to keep them informed. This saves both your time and their time when it comes to notifying you of new positions.

8. Don’t miss on any potential opportunities 

Social media is now the most effective tool for job seekers. Smaller businesses and headhunters are more likely to hire through recommendations or LinkedIn searches. If you don’t use these fantastic, free tools, you’re passing up huge opportunities.

9. Don’t stay out of work too long

While you wait for a better opportunity, take on some temporary work. Make the most of your time and add to your list of already in-demand skills.

10. Seek for advice from people in the industry

If you don’t get the job after the first few interviews, don’t take it personally. Consider this an opportunity to seek advice on how to improve or gain more experience in order to increase your chances of landing your dream job. This initiative will demonstrate your drive and ambition, and will definitely make a good impression!

It may appear to be a distant dream, but with careful planning, skill development, determination, and persistent networking, you can land your dream job in Cyprus and truly do what you love.
