CVs to Get You Hired Part VIIII: Tips for Geotechnical Engineers
Calibre presents the ninth instalment of our 'CVs to Get You Hired' blog series: Insider Tips for the ideal Geotechnical Engineer CV. Cory Taylor - Linkedin 0161 660 2360       Simon Wake - Linkedin 0131 23406047       Be project specific and help your CV stand out. The geotechnical area is very broad and can cover a wide variety of projects from transport, commercial and residential, through to oil and gas. If you are applying for a consultancy that work mainly in the residential area, then help yourself to stand out by detailing your residential project experience – you can do likewise with other sectors. An employer is likely to spend more time assessing a CV that contains skills (e.g. piling, slope stability, retaining walls etc) that can match the projects they are working on. A simple and effective way to do this is by working out exactly what your next employer is looking for (the job description is your main clue) and then adapting your CV accordingly. The perfect personal profile Your personal profile is the first chance you have to sell yourself. Employers see multiple CVs on a daily basis, so it’s important to have a clear and concise personal profile at the top of your CV that creates a good first impression and try and avoid too many buzz-word style soft-skills (dynamic, enthusiastic etc) – be specific on what you are good at technically. It is also beneficial to outline what you are looking for in your next move; if you are wanting to be more design-based, it will separate you from engineers pursuing more site-based roles. Additionally, this shows that you are being pro-active and thinking about your career. Avoid the generic. Mentioning soft skills definitely sets you apart, but they need to be evidenced. For example, many people put the generic ‘I am good at working within a team and individually’. This may be true, but the meaning has been diluted due to overuse. A much better phrase would be, ‘I am an excellent team player, having successfully worked on [project A] and [project B] in a small team with ‘x’ amount of people, but I can also work independently doing the site work and writing reports on [project C] with little supervision.’ Not only does it sound better, it gives the employer an idea of the level you are working at. Don’t be shy! For every Geotechnical role in the area, there will be several engineers wanting to be considered. It is important to make yourself stand out; if you had a big, individual impact on a project then ensure that you say this. Don’t undersell yourself. One for the Graduates: Include details of individual contributions to projects and go into details about university modules and dissertations. If you are a fresh graduate, always put your education first. While your work experience is relevant and shows that you have skills that can be brought forwards, the most relevant are those that you developed in your education. It is what will make you stand out. Go into detail about the main modules and what the dissertation entailed. Civil Engineering is such a wide topic, so it is good if you can outline exactly what it is about the Geotechnical area that interests you from your degree. Still stuck? Don't worry. The art of CV writing is a tricky one. Our specialist consultants are experts when it comes to writing a great CV, and we're just on the other end of the phone. Find details on how to contact us here - or if you like, just drop us a quick email.

Calibre Search Annual Golf Day 2017
Last Friday saw the return of the Annual Calibre Search Golf Day, after the achievements of last year the pressure was on to deliver a day filled with fun, sun and a bit of competition!  With the weather looking good and the stunning views across Huddersfield Golf Course, the day was set to be a success from the get go. The morning started with a bacon sandwich at the Huddersfield golf club Centenary Suite and a few introductions from Calibre Search Director, Matthew Finlay. The turnout was great and after being filled with bacon and tea the first team were ready to tee off.  The first team made their score predictions and following four very promising first drives they were on their way!   To the surprise of many of the attendees, most of the golfers started strong on the first hole and the confidence was high as the final team set off an hour later.  The competition stepped up a little on hole 8, with a Beatthe Pro challenge all in aid of Calibre Search’s chosen charity REDR.   REDR are an international NGO whose mission is to rebuild lives in times of disaster by training, supporting and providing aid workers to relief programmes across the world.   The Pro for the day was Dave Liversidge and after a few practice swings before the competition began he was ready to challenge our golfers. Two very happy players, Mike Tobin from Calibre and Mark Dean from Enable by Design, beat the pro and we raised a fantastic £110 for the charity. Despite the strong start, some teams were more eager than others to take a break at the halfway house. Our lucky golfers were treated to the taste of Yorkshire with Roosters Brewery’s Yankee Pale Ale and tasters of Divine gin. The founder of Divine Gin, Ray Woolhead joined the golfers at the resting point to give the teams some tasters and a mini masterclass in how to properly drink gin.             With a pork pie, a pint and gin to burn off the teams were sent on their way to complete the rest of the course. Like any golf round there was the good player, the lucky player, the optimist, the pessimist, the player who had done badly and the player who had played TERRIBLY, but all continued with a smile and got back into the swing of things….If you’ll pardon the pun!   The challenges continued onto hole 11 with closest to the pin, won by Calibre’s own Mike Tobin; followed by the longest drive on hole 16, which after a close race was won by Mark Dean. There was a lot of fun and friendly competition on the two holes but we all know a winning pair when we see one and Tobin & Dean had gold medal winning skills!  By 4pm all the teams were finished and it was time for some more food, some drinks and the presentation.      The trophies, presented by Calibre Search Managing Director Mark Lyons were awared to Team Two made up of Pete Bevils, Andy Baker, John Bowes and Niall Mellor with an impressive 75 points, followed closely by Team Six, Matthew Finlay, Paul Taylor, Tim Justice, Mike Tobin with 72 points.       And there were plenty more winners: Wooden Spoon – Tom Brown (Calibre) Calibre Cup – 2nd place – Mike Tobin 1st place – Sam Sykes Overall - 3rd place – Tim Justice (AAD Architects)2nd place – Mark Dean (Enable By Design)1st place – James Finch (Systra)   The day was a resounding success and despite a few missing balls and a couple of burnt noses it was a day filled with plenty of fun whilst raising the money for charity!

The Unfamiliar Signs You Need a Career Change
A toxic working environment, bad boss or low wage aren't the only reason to look for a career change. Calibre Search highlights some of the less recognisable signs that you might be in the wrong job. Everyone has those days where snoozing your alarm is essential, where the temptation for a duvet day and binge watching orange is the new black seems far too tempting. Then there are the days when nothing seems to go right, you turn up late, with coffee on your white shirt and a to-do list metres long. There is no getting around those days, we all have them, it is part of working life, however, there is a difference between a bad day and a bad job. A bad day can be fixed by a long walk, a nice meal or simply a better day the day after. A bad job is a little harder to fix. Sometimes you can’t put your finger on what is making you feel unhappy, and often it’s not that the job is bad it’s simply not right for you. So, when is the job not right for you? We all know the obvious signs of a bad job, a negative working environment or a disrespectful boss, but what about for a bad fit? Here are 4 signs you’re ready for a change, they may seem trivial or small but they can impact your day-to-day working life and could be a call for change. Insta-Envy We are all guilty of a little social media jelousy, the friends the followers who seem to constantly travel to exotic locations, drinking cocktails or hitting the gym, but sometimes a little jealousy can be a sign for change and give you the inspiration and ideas you need.  Friends and followers who seem to constantly travel to exotic locations, drinking cocktails or hitting the gym, but sometimes a little jealousy can be a sign for change. With more access to other people’s lives we also are free to view careers, opportunities and companies we never knew existed. Who knew there was a job as a bike designer, which includes travelling to cycling events across the globe testing out bikes on some of the best tracks worldwide? Well Peter from you English Class in 1992 is doing that now. If you are envious of the careers of your followers, or a few in individuals in particular, that maybe be a signs you’ve lost the enthusiasm for your own job and it could be worth seeing what else is out there… The Unsolicited Wise Owl A young office has its perks, enthusiasm and hardworking newbie’s can mean innovative ideas and the company keeping up to date with new industry trends, but for the longstanding members of the team it could mean more work. You become the support, advisor and tutor of the team without the pay package and title to match. But don’t jump ship straight away! Often the senior team members will have noticed you are taking on a bigger role. Make sure you discuss your concerns with them and whether you want the pressure reduced or a more formal acknowledgement of your new responsibilities, being up front and honest could pay off. If you’ve had the discussion and nothing has changed it could be your talent and expertise could be better utilised elsewhere. Sick of the typical 9-5 The 9-5 job works for a lot of people but there is a tendency for it do get tedious. Without a bit of variety, it’s easy to lose interest. This might seem a normal part of working life but companies are starting to buck the trend and you could benefit from the change. In an effort to entice fresh staff new and growing employers are offering perks to tackle to 9-5 boredom. Companies are now providing new and exciting incentives for staff which can be worthwhile watching out for. Extra holidays, free lunches, training courses, gym time at work and volunteering days are all on offer to bring in new employees. A healthy work/life balance is key to happy workers so keep an eye out, you never know you could be eating sushi for lunch after a swim and a sauna on a Tuesday afternoon! I Just Can’t Put My Finger On It Don’t underestimate your talent! Sometimes the fits just not right, you can’t quite see why but you may not feel valued, inspired or enthusiastic about work. Don’t lose faith in your career choice! Make sure you always have an up to date CV, the job of your dreams could be just around the corner and you don’t want to miss out. Recruiters are always looking for new talent and although you might not be able to find anything right for you, agencies have a pool of clients that might be searching for someone just like you! If finding a new job seems exciting but you aren’t sure where to start then we could help you. We specialise in Built Environment Consultancy, Built Environment Contractors, HVAC / Refrigeration / Maintenance, I.T. and Marketing and could be your first step to reaching your potential, call us on 0333 323 0733 or email info@calibresearch.co.uk.

CVs to Get You Hired VIII: Tips for Java Developers
James Mitchell, Associate Director for Calibre Search, specialises in recruiting Java Developers within the IT market and we enlisted him to put some tips together to help people like you with your CV. Read on to find out how to create a CV that will help you stand out from the crowd and really impress employers.    LinkedIn James Mitchell 0113 234 6047 - Associate Director at Calibre Search IT   1. Match yourself to the job specification  Your personal profile is a chance to show how your previous experience makes you the right person for the job (if you’re not sure on this have a look at the ‘Job Description’ – our developer job adverts can be found here) by matching yourself to the job specification. It's worth investing time on this summary, because it could be your only chance to grab the employer's attention. If your specific objective is relocation, for example, but you don't mention this explicitly in your CV, you could be dismissed when they see your address is out of commuting range. 2. Give context When writing your CV, give the skills some context – a list of Frameworks/Application Servers will lead to recruiters calling you, but the interview requests come from your skills being given some perspective. On a similar note, do the same thing with your projects – give them some background: your role, tech stack used and the outcome. It should read as what you have personally achieved while at that company. 3. Get the structure sorted Keep your CV succinct and relevant – the work you did 35 years ago has little bearing on what you are doing today. Three to four pages will suffice, and always mention your responsibilities; ‘I’, not ‘we’. Your education history should always be at the bottom of your CV, unless you have recently graduated or have some qualifications that are particularly relevant to the role you are applying to. Oh, and never write in third person unless you want to be universally judged. 4. Your skills can pay the bills Remember to mention soft skills. If your role requires a level of stakeholder management or bringing teams together then be sure to mention it, it could be important in your next role. Your hobbies and interests can be significant too – we all have friends (well, most of us) and telling the reader you enjoy socialising with them isn’t really considered a hobby. Take this opportunity to genuinely say what your interests are outside of work. 5. Clean it up It sounds obvious, but you would be surprised how often we see it – your National Insurance number should remain private, you should not have this on your CV. Also, references are only needed at offer stage – if you’re approached by a recruiter who needs them as ‘part of their process’ you should be aware that it isn’t necessary to provide them at this stage. Still stuck? Don't worry, the art of CV writing is a tricky one. Our specialist IT consultants are experts when it comes to writing a great CV, and we're just on the other end of the phone – you can phone us on 01132346047 – alternatively my email address is james.mitchell@calibresearch.co.uk and our developer jobs page can be found here.
