Finding your next job can sometimes feel like a daunting prospect. On top of the time it takes you to source vacancies that suit your skills at locations within commuting distance from your home or that allow you to work from home – not to mention completing all the job application processes – how can you be sure that the company you’re applying to work at will be somewhere you’ll feel happy?
A good employer values and respects its staff, provides a safe working environment, helps individuals to develop their skills, be fully supportive and open to feedback – and rewards people for their hard work. Essentially, an organisation that’s completely committed to creating a great place to work for all its employees.
So, how do you go about finding an employer with these attributes? The answer is by doing some research. From information found on a recruitment agency website to the company’s own website, to insider information available via the likes of LinkedIn and Glassdoor, you can find useful intel that provides you with a pretty good idea of what a company is like to work for.
Setting aside some time to do a little research will help you decide whether a particular job really will suit you and if you’ll feel genuinely enthusiastic about working at that employer. This, of course, is something that benefits everyone – you’ll be happier in the role and feel inspired to do a great job and are likely to stay with the company for longer.
