How to Stay Positive in the Facilities Management Job Search

It can be difficult to Stay positive whilst searching for an FM Job as competition for roles so fierce. Is it any wonder, in today’s facilities management job market, that candidates are facing more challenges and difficulties in finding the right job than ever before?


It is apparent recruitment processes are more thorough and in-depth; after applying for roles, submitting endless CV’s, attending interviews and not securing a new role it can be very disheartening to stay optimistic. While this may well be the case for you, it is important that you create an impression of positivity and drive whilst speaking to recruiters and consultants and hiring managers.


Be Realistic and avoid disappointment; apply for roles you know you are capable of, have the right skills and experience for and fit the salary bracket. Focus on the type of role you are looking for and don’t allow yourself to get side-tracked from this. When submitting applications, make sure you meet the essential criteria and that you have experience for at least 75% of the role.


Try a different approach and review your search so far; what has gone well? What hasn’t gone well? What improvements can you make?
