Knowing whether you’re satisfied in your job, if it’s the right one for you, is a measure of your contentedness in the various aspects of the job. This can include the work itself, relationships with colleagues, whether you are advancing in your work, or get along with the management process. There are a lot of aspects of self to consider, as well as the workplace and your personal life. These can include cognitive, behavioural, emotional and other characteristics.
Ultimately job satisfaction has more to do with you, your perceptions and biases, and outlook on life. We have the power within to alter these various aspects of self – positively or negatively. We can believe for the best or the worst. It’s important to remember that the job doesn’t change the essence of self or our values, and who we truly are.
Personal job satisfaction is a sense of achievement in work related tasks, personal goal achievement and continued growth in our career journey, which have the power to motivate us as an individual. It also goes far beyond daily work routines, spilling out into our personal lives. Life becomes more fulfilling and expands the joy that we share with family and friends. The sense of purpose, receiving recognition and feeling valued, and reaching personal goals provides us with a greater sense of contentment and belonging.
Reaching satisfaction in the job often involves personal reflective work in frequent work reviews and continued self-development. The support of professionals also helps to increase satisfaction and enjoying the rewards of our labour. Ideally, jobs should be enjoyable while doing daily tasks and provide many rewards. If you find that you are in a job that you’re not enjoying, supports such as counsellors, career guidance counsellors, life coaches and recruitment agencies are well worth considering, and investing in. These are powerful resources that offer invaluable advice and insights.
Having an active personal life, healthy eating, frequent exercise, enjoying varied hobbies, nurturing personal relationships and creating time for restful days are important steps which contribute to our sense of personal wellbeing in our job. “True motivation comes from achievement, personal development, job satisfaction, and recognition” – Frederick Herzberg.

It’s a candidate’s market, there are an abundance of jobs open at present and not enough candidates to fill them. While we may not be able to chance the amounts of applications that come in for an open role, what we can do is maximise our hiring process.
Here are some simple steps companies can take to help with the hiring process –
· Job specification – Ensure that the Job Title, Location, Salary and Hours are clearly displayed on your job advert. Include the duties/ responsibilities that the role involves so candidates will know what is expected of them. Make sure to add in the benefits of working with your company, these can include – pension, health insurance, employee rewards, flexible working or remote working.
· Advertise on as many platforms as you can – There are many different platforms where a company can advertise their jobs such as Irishjobs, Indeed, Glassdoors.Make sure to utilise all platforms available to you. Advertise your vacancy through your company account on social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There are also many groups which you can join and post on like LinkedIn groups or Facebook groups. Candidates actively monitor these groups for jobs which may be of interest to them.
· Application process – Make it as easy as possible for a candidate to apply for your job, simply by having an “apply now” button on the advert or an email contact to send their CV directly. Companies can often look for candidates to fill in a long application document, send their CV, cover letter, and have additional questions on top of these. Some companies even ask for a video application. Candidates get frustrated with all these steps so make sure your application process isn’t too tedious which may put candidates off applying.
· Phone screen before interview – Candidates can look great on paper, but often times it takes chatting with a prospective employee to know if they are going to be a good match for the role or not. Phone screenings are a great way to find out more about a candidate and what they are looking for before arranging an interview.
· Be response & have a hiring plan – One of the biggest mistakes companies make is not contacting hot candidates as soon as they apply. Some companies wait a month if not more to contact candidates. I personally had one client contact me after 3 months to arrange an interview with a candidate, the candidate by then, had been working in a new role a number of weeks and was no longer interested. Have a clear, concise recruitment plan is place. Carry out weekly interviews, have a start date in mind for the successful candidate & training plan.
· Interview process – An interview is a good way for a candidate to get an insight of what it will be like to work with your company. Give candidates detailed information about the role, your company, the culture, the benefits. Make sure to give a good impression and make the candidate feel comfortable. Use the interview to ask the candidate important questions that are relevant to the role. Also ask candidates if they have any questions at the end of the interview.
· Interview Outcome – It is important to not keep a candidate waiting after they have had their interview. If you are carrying out other interviews keep the candidate in the loop, even by dropping them a simple email stating that you are interviewing other candidates but will be in touch with them in X number of days regarding outcome. If you know a candidate was not successful right after interview, inform them straight away, don’t leave them waiting for bad news. Give them feedback and insights on what to improve for future interviews.
· Obtain references – When you are ready to offer a successful candidate the job, it is important to obtain manager/ supervisor references form recent employers before you extent offer.
· Offer & onboarding – Once you have suitable references extend official offer. Make sure to send the candidate the offer letter, contract, and also onboarding & training documentation.
· Ask for a Review – It is a great idea to ask applicants for feedback from applicants on how they found the application & interview process. Candidates can leave ratings on your company page on Indeed or Glassdoors. Prospective candidates can then view these reviews and will know that the application & interview process is a pleasant experience.

Are you unsure of what to put in your CV, or how to structure it? Knowing what details to add can give you a strong lead on being called for an interview! Recruitment agencies and employers look for items that stand out at a glance. These can vary for different jobs. Recruiters are adept at seeking any gaps or discrepancies. The presentation of the CV needs to be considered. The structure to the layout should be clear and easy to read – providing a succinct story, from start to finish. Cover letters are similar to windows of a house. They provide a preview of the CV. It is similar to a sales pitch. Include relevant elements here from your CV, and information that relates to your experience and the job spec.
Some main elements to consider putting into your CV:
Previous roles and responsibilities of previous employment, or volunteer work
Experience to date – a brief overview
Skill-set, including hard and soft skills
Results and achievements in previous roles, include any that relate to the job spec
Education achieved to date, including course work currently being undertaken or planned up-skilling courses in the pipeline. Evidence of continuous learning is more desirable in an application
Keep bullet-points concise
Ensure that content is consistent
Including a profile headshot provides a personal connection
References provide strength to the application, particularly if the recruiter would like to follow up on more information with a third party
Including a LinkedIn link can provide additional pertinent information
Remember the CV must be clear in its presentation, easily scanned, and provide the relevant information for the role, including significant keywords. Ensure that dates are accurate and proofread for any typos. Structure the layout so that it’s visually easy to read. HR personnel should be able to review your CV in less than one minute. “Structure is more important than content in the transmission of information” – Abbie Hoffman.
A good cover letter should provide a brief synopsis of the CV and why the candidate is interested in the company, and the role being applied for. Knowing your CV details, and dates, ahead of the interview will provide you with consistency during the interview. Getting these steps right always provides a great first impression.
