WRAPPING THIS EDITION UP - GETTING A JOB
In the last year or so, a lot of IT professionals have found themselves
chasing a small pool of jobs. As my business is successful in attaining a
good number of custom software projects a year, I thought it would be useful to pass on some advice to give those persons seeking work in IT during and after the XMAS period.
Firstly searching for work is a full time job. So take it seriously and
make sure that every day you spend at least 5 hours a day searching for jobs
and improving your skills. If you can, do this in a location that is
separate from your home environment. To this end, use whatever free government resources that you can find to assist you, read and research at a library or in a quiet room where the kids (and spouse) won't disturb you.
Once you have exhausted the daily papers and online job markets, its time
to improve your IT skills. By this I do not mean browsing web sites and
reading the odd chapter of a book. What you should do is try and complete
a professional IT task. Ideas that I have used is to rewrite a previous
application in a new computer language. Another would be to review
programs that you have written for previous clients and offer that client extensions to the software or even write them a help file for the system. But do the task professionally and finish it off like a product that you would purchase. It's the last 20% of a program where you really learn your
IT skills. Other ideas that come to mind is to write letters to the
editor for IT magazines, contribute to online groups such as the MS Access group below or websites such as vb123.com. But whatever you do, work as hard when you do not have a job as you do when you do have a job. And do not forget to tell your future employers what work you did when you were unemployed.
