Here at Odyssey, we like to think that we are helping you apply for your dream job overseas. Despite the overwhelming positives thoughts you may have about your dream job there are always things to consider before making the move. 

We have put together a guide for you which should help you along the way when thinking about or applying for your dream job.

Article 3 - The Job Search

Before you start the job search, there may be a few things you want to think about that could help you in the process of finding the right job for you. Utilising tools that a recruitment agency can offer is the best way to find a job that is suited to you.

2 - CV 

Make sure that you have updated your CV as recently as possible before you hand it in to us. You want your CV to stand out as much as possible from the other candidates going for the same jobs as you. 

There is an article here all about what to include in your CV to make it the best it can possibly be.

3 - Suitable Jobs

This may go without saying but only apply for jobs that are actually suited to your expertise. Applying for a lot of different jobs with different expertise and skills will give you a bad name.

4 - Identify Location

You should probably know by this stage of the process what countries you fancy working in. Do some research into the areas of the country and try and pick where the best location for you to be.

Are you in to the big cities or do you like the rural areas a lot more? You have to think about these things before you start to apply for jobs. 

5 - Odyssey Recruitment Process

Once you have registered with us, you will get an email of our business terms that you can read and sign. Along with this you will also receive an application pack. 

If we find that there is a suitable role for you then we will arrange a video call with you at a suitable time.

If you decide to go ahead with the proposed job then we will send your CV and other vital documents to the hospital for you. Sometimes, we will tidy up your CV in order to make sure that they can perform as well as possible. After the video interview with us, you will be sent an email confirming what was just discussed in the call and confirming that you want to apply for the job that was discussed. 

Most hospitals will narrow the applications down to a few candidates. These candidates may be invited to the hospital for a tour and a meeting or receive an invitation to an online video call with the medical director. 

If it all goes well for you then you will be offered the job and given a set time frame to accept it and complete contractual formalities.
