Connect with Your Network
Recruiters are not the only people who may be aware of vacancies. Old colleagues, managers, and peers can also be a great source for potential opportunities, so it is important that you reconnect with them. Do not worry if you have not been in touch with these people for a while, everyone is busy, and most people will appreciate you taking the time to check-in.
Consider the Contracting Market
Professionals who have been in permanent employment for a while can forget to consider the contract market despite the fact that contracting can be lucrative. If you are an expert in your field and have built an impressive repertoire of skills, accepting a Contract may be a great way to leverage your expertise, and often at a higher rate of pay than a permanent opportunity.
