Application Stage

Applying for work

So we have decided what industry or industries we will be looking for work in and either on your own or with the help of the Incite Solutions Team we have put together a resume which is the right fit for you and is targeted to potential employers you would be interested in working for.

What comes next?

We need to begin actively approaching the market!

The Incite Solutions Group Employment Services Team recommend the following approach when you reach this stage.

” To undertake at least one piece of job related activity per day, this could be something as in depth as completing a full online employer application and selection criteria, to something as simple as dropping in a resume to the manager of an employer you would like to work for.

Try to mix up in depth activities that take lots of time with simple straightforward activities to keep your job search interesting and engaging.”

We have included a number of  resources below to assist with applying for work, including examples of well completed application form, how to guides to employer calling and preparing applications, there is also a handy job diary to help you keep track of your applications for follow up.

There is no magic formula for finding work, consistency of activity, a quality employer targeted approach and submitting a variety of applications on a regular basis will provide you with opportunities to meet employers face to face.

In our experience lots of opportunities lead to results!

If you would like to discuss applying for work and what the best approach for you is, please speak to your Rehabilitation Consultant or a member of the Employment Services Team (Dan and Sally)
