First of all, let’s take a second to acknowledge that the job market is not what it used to be. It is fiercer than ever before. 👀

✅ Register with several recruitment companies
✅ Apply for jobs daily
✅ Email your CV to companies that aren’t advertising
✅ Drop your CV off into local companies
✅ Reach out to employers on LinkedIn
