Q: I’m a software developer living in Sydney and it’s been a while since I applied for a job. I want to develop my career and gain new and valuable experiences, but I have to admit I’m totally out of practice. Should I update my CV and start hounding Seek, or is there more I could be doing to enhance my chances?
A: Here in Australia, it’s common for jobseekers to visit job boards like Seek and start a search from there. After hours of scrolling, you might find a handful of roles that pique your interest, but chances are you won’t have found a job that looks like that next step.
Think of it this way: Being a software developer and searching for a new job on a job board is a little like going to a car sales yard without having thought about the kind of car you want.
At Client Server, we do things differently. Our specialist recruitment team in Sydney have years of experience recruiting in the technology sector both in Australia and the United Kingdom. We pride ourselves on a consultative approach that focuses on you first, not the job.
We go the extra mile to learn not just what skills, languages and projects you offer, but what you want from your career too. Are you looking for a more hands-on position? Greater flexibility? Exciting tech stacks? These are the kind of questions we look to ask you before we even talk about jobs.
After all, what’s the point of pitching you a job that doesn’t have what you want? Nobody wins there.
But the best thing about working with a technology recruiter is that they spend their days talking about the tech jobs market. Client Server Australia’s insight and expertise are second to none. Not only do we get the jobs market, but we also get the tech market too.
So, let’s start the conversation. Talk to our recruitment experts in Sydney today about your next career step.
