Do you dread Monday mornings? Do you spend Sundays wishing the weekend didn’t go so fast?

If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.

Not many people skip to work on a Monday. But if you count the hours until Friday afternoon every.single.week … perhaps it’s time for a change.

There’s a lot more to starting your job search than updating your CV.

Before you start surfing LinkedIn and SEEK and sending out CVs, ask yourself these questions:

  • What do I like about my current job?

  • What are my key achievements from my current role? What am I most proud of?

  • Why am I looking for a new job?

  • What things are important to me in my next role?

  • What kind of company culture and people do I want to work with?

Going through this thought process (and perhaps discussing it with a friend) will get you in the right headspace to hit the job search.
