Career Advice


What advice will be covered?

Hello, at Harley Oxford we believe that the best way to learn how to be successful at job hunting is to learn from the experience of individuals who have walked the same path.

First, we will focus on defining your goals and finding the right career path that suits your personality. Our aim will be to construct a strategic plan (sort of a long-term vision) that will ensure that you will reach your ultimate goal.

We will discuss how to perform industry research and how to find opportunities that would have otherwise been missed without reading our site. We will set up your LinkedIn profile in a way that will maximize future employment opportunities. Afterwards, we will cover all parts of the selection process. We will show you how to write a great CV and Cover Letter and will provide you with actionable advice on what you need to do in order to perform well at interviews. Each of these sections will contain a number of examples.

Finally, there is a complete section dedicated to interviews. You will learn about the various types of interviews and how to approach them in order to leave a positive impression and land your dream job.

As you can see, we have lots of work ahead of us. Dive straight in! And let’s begin this journey together!

The best way to get results from this information?

This is undoubtedly the most important section of our site. Whether you will do as we say in this section will determine whether or not you will be successful. It is as simple as that.

It is really important…really, really important that you take notes while you read each section. Please, write down every good piece of advice.

It is essential to read the full Careers Advice section of our site. Don’t skip any parts of it. Don’t say “Oh I will do this, I won’t do that”, because if you want to succeed, you’ve got to follow the advice that we give you. Only by following each of the steps that are discussed, will you achieve complete preparation that will ultimately result in you landing your dream job.

You will obtain the best results by using this advice as something more than a one-time learning opportunity. Yes, it is important to go through the entire advice section at least once before you start applying for jobs. However, I would also encourage you to re-visit sections during each of the steps of the recruiting processes that you will go through. This will ensure that you are able to apply all good ideas that you learn here.

It is our goal to be your trusted companion throughout the whole process; from the beginning, lasting until the moment when you land your dream job.

Therefore it is important that you please do the following:

  • Take notes
  • Go through the entire advice database
  • Come back when you need a particular section
