Careers experts at Surrey county council have this week issued a refreshed call to the jobseekers of the UK to break tired and dangerous habits of procrastinating or risk remaining in a rut for the long-term. According to the team behind the warning, tens of thousands of UK citizens are costing themselves the jobs of their dreams every single day simply by not being proactive enough in their efforts.
They argue that the jobs are out there waiting to be found and no more than ever will not simply fall out of the sky or come knocking at the doors of those waiting for them. Instead, it had become a case of the genuine go-getters reaping the rewards while those sitting idly by and hoping for a miracle stand to be hugely disappointed.
According to the council jobs service, the secret to nailing any and all Surrey jobs lies in being in the right place at the right time. This is where the problems begin to show themselves however as while some will move Heaven and Earth to ensure they’re in the right place at the right time, others leave it to chance.
And this is where career market experts insist the problem lies as the chances of accidentally being in the right place at the right time are one in a million – those who go out and chase their jobs on a daily basis however have as good a chance as anyone else out there.
They also argue that there really are no excuses left, given the way in which today’s jobseekers are largely spoilt for choice when it comes to the tools and resources at their disposal to make the job hunting process easier. From online job listings to CV databases and all-manner of advice and guidance resources, it’s a little like everyone having his or her own personal careers adviser on hand 24/7.
Surrey County Council has every intention of opening a thousand and one doors for the UK’s jobseekers with genuine desires to find their perfect posts – it is however up to said jobseekers to exercise their initiative and walk through them.
Surrey Country Council’s Change and Efficiency initiative is all about bringing positive change to the people of the area and across the UK as a whole. One of the office’s specialisms is that of assisting genuine jobseekers in the search for their most suitable and desired career posts, regularly blogging on tips and advice to curb growing unemployment problems.
