How to find your ideal job image
How to find your ideal job

​Looking for a new job can be time-consuming, difficult, tedious, and very frustrating which is why it's useful to seek help from an agency! No matter what stage you are at in your career, having dedicated individuals to guide you throughout your job search can make all the difference when securing a role that’s right for you. Instead of scrolling through hundreds of job adverts, which might not be suitable to your skills, experience level or availability, Thrive can help you find a role and save time throughout your application process. What do you need to apply? The first thing you will need is a CV. Think about the type of things you can include on your CV. Make sure you include any previous roles, work experience and any volunteering work. Make sure you include your skills and mention if you have a driving license as this can expose you to more opportunities in your area that require you to drive. Some other important things to watch out for:  Check spelling and grammar. A good CV is clear of any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. Enlist a second pair of eyes to proofread your CV and give some feedback before you send it off with any applications. Tailor your CV. Explore the company’s website and social media to make sure you are up to speed with any latest news and updates so you can target your experience to the role. Do not lie or exaggerate on your CV. Dishonesty to a new potential employer is not only unprofessional but it carries consequences. For instance, lying about your degree result is classed as degree fraud and in some cases can result in a prison sentence. Avoid using common and overused phrases. Whilst it is great to highlight that you are a ‘team player’ and a ‘multi-tasker’, it’s more important for employers to see real-life examples of when you’ve demonstrated these traits. Covid-19. Employers will understand the challenges and consequences caused by lockdowns. So, if you’re worried about a gap in your CV due to the COVID-19 lockdown, there are plenty of other things you can include instead, such as: -       Details of online courses or webinars you attended-       Volunteering work -       Charity work -       New hobbies such as sports, crafts or reading -       Share if you gained any new skills such as learning a new language or coding   Find and secure a role with Thrive Now you have your CV, what’s next?

How to beat burnout at work image
How to beat burnout at work

​As of 2022, almost half (46%) of workers are close to burnout, according to research conducted by Westfield Health. This is a huge number and highlights the need for us all to be mindful of our ways of working to improve our wellbeing. What is burnout? The World Health Organisation defines burnout as ‘energy depletion, or exhaustion’ manifested in ‘a difficulty to keep up with workload’, ‘increased mental distance from job’, ‘negativism or cynicism and reduced professional efficacy’. How do we break the cycle? We can think of burnout like a snowball, the longer we keep rolling it along and enduring these feelings of stress, the larger it grows. A lot of the advice for how to beat burnout is to do with routine and boundaries, by creating an environment that is optimistic, predictable and feels within control, we can begin to face into our stress rather than letting it overwhelm us. 1.     Identify the root of the issue It might be that you believe the cause of your burnout is the sheer amount of work you have on your plate, but career strategist Stacey Staaterman encourages you to ‘find your 2%’: you can put about 98% of the blame on the workplace but it’s worth considering the 2% that might be down to the decisions you make.  ‘Maybe it’s that you can’t say no to anyone. Maybe it’s that you treat everything on your to-do list as equally important, so you’re in a pressure cooker all the time.’ Identifying and addressing the things you do have control over can help you to feel a sense of reclaiming the issue. 2.     Work with your employer to create boundaries If you do have a sense of causes of stress in the workplace, go to your employer with some suggestions for how you could address them.  Perhaps it’s setting boundaries in communication systems and styles, establishing meeting formats, or even a slight variation to a working day or week. Open and honest communication about how you’re feeling and what they could do to help will lead you to both feel that you are on the same page, and will likely help your colleagues to feel comfortable enough to voice their opinions too.  3.     Learn how to switch off As well as addressing problems within working hours, it’s important to think about how we are using our downtime too.  With phones, laptops, and tablets we can feel like we’re always ‘on’ but setting a time where we can totally disconnect allows your brain to switch off and recharge ready for the next working day. This can be achieved by setting boundaries with people who might contact you to let them know that you won’t be available after a certain time. Plus with this newfound ‘free’ time you can create space for hobbies completely separate from work that signal to your brain that you are having a break. Knowing that you are on a break as soon as you put on your running shoes, pick up your knitting needles or open a book can really help to set a firm boundary. Addressing burnout is a gradual process, but the first step is recognising that it needs to be addressed – and we’re already there! Hopefully, these tips have given you some ideas to create a work routine that feels sustainable and manageable for you. Looking for a change? Work for a workplace that can support you in managing your stress. Take a look at our vacancies to find a new role that suits you and your needs.
