KEEP THAT CV TO HAND
Passport and driving licence aside, your CV is one of your most precious documents and should be kept bang up to date. Do it now and, for God’s sake, keep it brief. Nobody is going to read much beyond your first page. Remember: two pages, great. Three, max.
Likewise make sure your LinkedIn profile is regularly updated and matches your CV.
GET OUT THERE AND NETWORK
You really should get out more. There’s lots of opportunities for networking and generally getting yourself known. Whether it’s a regional (eg Cambridge Network) or professional (eg IET) gathering, go along and mingle.
DON’T GET CARRIED AWAY AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY
I mean literally carried away, by security. It’s really very unbecoming and it’s an image that sticks!
