Most of us live in a highly connected world that reaches out and reflects the lives of others and ourselves. With tweets and likes, posts and messaging all day long they flood our inboxes and streams. Occasionally they catch our attention through humour or horror or simple human kindness.
So today is my chance to share a post with a human face. I was contacted through LinkedIn by Mehram Saleem from Lahore in Pakistan. He works for Asmara International Limited, a global fashion company with offices in 8 countries, as a Technical Manager responsible for the areas of quality, cutting, stitching, sampling, shading, auditing, and pattern fitting.
He's trying to find a job in Europe to improve his career opportunities and I promised to share his connection and do what I could to help him on his path.
It's difficult to know where to start really. How do you help someone the other side of the world to get to another continent?
I want to offer not only Mehram some advice but also any other fashion sector employees looking to move on. Taking action for yourself is the first step so here are some practical things any of us can follow to improve our employability and to open up new horizons.
If like Mehram you want to move jobs, country or even profession here are my tips.
There you have it 10 steps anyone can take in any continent anywhere in the world. No one says it will be easy. Those that succeed are those that take action. Start today. And to help you plan what to do when you can download an action planner that covers these 10 items. Download it here.
If you happen to need an experienced Gerber or TUKA CAD specialist for your fashion business, or you want someone who can act as your technical manager for your fashion brand please contact Mehram Saleem here or email him at [email protected]
When it comes to getting a new job, there will always be at least one interview you have to go through. And normally there's no interview unless your prospective employer has read your resume and covering letter and been impressed enough to call you in.
This means that your resume is your key tool for getting invited to interview. No resume, no interview. No interview, no job. That's why we have created this short course on How to Create an Awesome Fashion Job Resume That Gets Interviews. It takes you through everything you need to know and do step by step to create a resume that gets you selected for interview. Don't apply for your next job without taking this course!
