While this may seem obvious, it is surprising how many people become demoralised if they are rejected for the first role they apply for, noted Phil Flaxton, chief executive of Work Wise UK.
He said that people who are already in a job that they are not particularly enjoying may also encounter this problem, but the challenge can be overcome by staying positive.
"I think it is a very fluid market at the moment, I think it is going to be challenging, but I take the view that if you want to find work and you're not too precious about what you do, within reason, then you've got the right mental attitude to appeal to a future employer," Mr Flaxton explained.
If candidates simply put their hands in their pockets and think 'well, I'm not playing', then they are unlikely to be attractive to a future employer, he added.
