January is behind us and the new year is well underway. If you’ve decided to look for a new job in 2020, then the following key points will help you boost your employability this year and beyond. 1. Think about the skills you will need to achieve your future career goals: If you really are to move closer to reaching your professional goals, it’s crucial to subjectively take stock of...

What do you want from your next job? More flexibility, perhaps? To immerse yourself in a new and improved company culture? And probably a little more in the bank each month, right? These are the sort of rewards we all tend to look for when we decide to switch jobs, but naturally, money in particular is a key motivator for many. You may also, however, be a little anxious about discussing your...
