2 most used job search filters – and why they don’t work if you’re stuck at a crossroads.

If you have a clear idea of your next role, this is not for you. When you have a clear direction, these filters make 100% sense. But, if you are unsure of your next role, then here is a new insight to help you view job search filters differently.

You want a new role or career but have no real idea of what you want to do instead. What do you do? Probably what we have all done.

Hop on a job search site.

Scroll. Scroll. Scroll.

When that is not working, you filter job adverts by distance and salary.

Scroll. Scroll. Scroll.

  • Do you understand the jobs that you are seeing as you flick by?
  • Do you know what the job entails and if you have the right skill set?
  • Do you have confidence that the job would be one you would enjoy doing?

Chances are the answer is no, no, NO.

What do you do?

You keep on scrolling of course.

Are you any nearer to a new role or career?

No, No. NO.

This is because the only jobs you really understand are those very similar to your current role or career. So, all you can find is the SAME – not the NEW.

If you want to break the cycle, let’s discover why you are stuck in the first place.

And then you will be able to move forward to find the new role or career.

Yes. Yes. YES.

Book the “Why am I stuck?’ insights assessment and in less than an hour, you will know:

  1. Why you are stuck at a crossroads being unable to decide what to do next (it’s probably not what you think!)

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
