Step 1. First, you need to decide if a change in jobs will be beneficial for your long term career plan. You should consider how the duration of your current occupation will look on your CV. It is always wise to consult with your HR department to resolve any potential issues or see if there are any other internal opportunities. 

Step 2. Once you have come to a decision of opting for a new job or following a new career, it is time to think positively and move forward. Set your fears aside, and remain confident as you step into a new stage of your professional life.

Step 3. But wait! The prospect of moving to another job or starting an entirely new career may be exciting, but it’s best if you don't start crafting your CV just yet. Firstly compile and review a list of your preferred industries and roles. This narrows down your choices for a new job or career, and you will more easily find one that best suits your skills.

Step 4. Browse through some job databases and narrow the scope of your search to your target sector and job field. 

Step 5. Make a list of your experience and strengths that match the job requirements. 

Step 6. Summarise the most relevant experience and skill sets in point form on your CV. Make it obvious that you are the most qualified candidate for the position. 

Step 7. Your CV should only be two pages at most. The brevity of your qualifications and skills should entice the recruiter to interview you. 

Step 8. Get some feedback on your CV from someone you trust. Make sure to review everything for correct spelling and grammar. 

Step 9. Google your name and ensure that your social media profiles are professional and appropriate for the position or field that you desire. 

Step 10. Create an All-Star LinkedIn profile. Doing so makes it easier for recruiters to find you. 

Step 11. Ask your colleagues and contacts for recommendations for the best recruitment agencies in your field. Try to use their name to help get you an interview and preferential treatment. 

Step 12. Finally, ask a recruitment agency in London specialising in recruiting for PA jobs, like RMS Recruitment, for feedback on your CV and helpful interview techniques.
