Lead industry analyst and former head of lead research at the consultancy consultancy consultancy Lead.com, has written an article detailing how to find a lead job in your chosen industry.
“If you’re just starting out, you’re probably thinking, ‘Oh, I’ve already done everything else in my career’,” lead industry analyst Sarah Taylor told Mashable.
“But there’s a lot you can learn from experience and experience alone.”
Sarah Taylor, lead industry expert at Lead.co.uk, tells Mashable the importance of being a good fit.
“There’s lots of information online that you can find out about the job market, but you need to really put in the time and read up on what the industry is like.
There’s no point in doing a quick Google search, unless you’re looking for an easy job.
You need to read a lot of literature.”
You also need to be prepared for a tough interview.
“The first interview is probably the hardest, but there are a lot more interesting interviews in your area.
You’ll probably have to talk to a lot people, but that’s ok because you’re getting the experience you want,” Sarah Taylor said.
“You can do a lot better in a few days if you’re prepared, but I’d definitely go with a few weeks.
That’s what we call the ‘career time’ period, where you spend as little time as possible.
It’s good to get to know the industry and get a feel for how it works.”
The article will be published on Thursday, February 19.
