Facing Job Uncertainty: effective applications

Learn how to survive and thrive by understanding how to play the applications game and win.

The sad fact is that restructuring, and redundancy is rapidly becoming a permanent feature of modern careers as workplaces all around the UK feel the market turbulence driven by competition, technology and Brexit.

We understand from first-hand experience what it’s like when your job may be at risk, and how worrying a time it can be. We also know that if you are facing restructuring or redundancy, you have two choices:

  • you can either let the fear defeat you, or
  • you can take your courage in both hands and seize the opportunity by focusing on making it work for you.

In the last year alone, Career Alchemy has helped almost 500 professionals do just that, enabling them to navigate their way to a brighter future for them and their loved ones and we can help you do the same too.

Understand the rules of the game

The trick to surviving and thriving is knowing how the applications game is played and how to unlock the opportunity you want.

To do that, all you have to do is be clear about what you have to offer and explain it effectively on paper - that way you get of 90% of the field to make it onto the short list.

Sounds easy?

Well, like everything in life, it is when you know how.

Protect your future by taking the uncertainty out of job applications

If it has been a while since you last applied for a job anywhere, you will need to hone your application and interview skills whether you are having to reapply for your job or need to get into a new role somewhere else.

Designed for anyone who needs to develop or refresh their application and CV writing skills, our Effective Applications 90 minutes live online webinar course

  • provides a low cost, high impact, investment which won’t break the bank
  • takes place in the evening so you can join from the comfort of your own home which means you don’t have to use valuable leave at a time when you need it most,
  • comes complete with course workbook and proven hybrid CV template with full guidance notes and

And in case you are worrying, we use special webinar software which guarantees that others on the live course can’t see your identity.

Finally, to make sure that you have every chance of success, you will be invited to a private online group for delegates so we can answer course related queries, so you are supported over the coming month.
