Focus on your job search.

After conducting research on how people search for jobs, we have found that many people are making life so difficult for themselves by not doing the correct search.

For example:

A Vehicle Technician who lives in Wallsend or Durham will type into Google ‘Technician jobs’… They then get frustrated to find double glazing Technicians, Lab Technicians or Assembly Technicians, none of them being what they wanted. Remember, Google is clever but it is still only a programme, not a mind reader. The more specific your search term, the more relevant your results. Try ‘Vehicle Technician jobs in Newcastle’ or ‘Durham’, this will produce a much better result. If however you want a more relevant result, just type ‘Ingenia Recruitment’ into Google.

Prepare for your interview

Research the company before your interview, think about what questions you will be asked and what questions you want answered and dress appropriately.

Take time to create the perfect CV

Most employers will value where you worked, how long you worked there and what position you held. It is important to give your full career history rather than just the last 5 years because it can affect your application. Make sure it looks presentable, clear and easy to read.


Create a professional LinkedIn profile and connect with employers and employees with the same interests or in the same industry.
