Finding the right job

It can feel like an almost impossible task to structure your job search and select potential employers among the many companies in the food industry. Many job seekers benefit from a systematic approach that starts with identifying their wishes and requirements for a future job and employer. This will make you better prepared for a targeted job search. A variety of tools are available to help you. How much time and effort you put into it depends on you and your situation.

Below is our suggestion for carrying out a job analysis – to determine what a job involves and whether it’s the right job for you. It’s not a list you need to follow from beginning to end. Just pick the elements that make sense to you.

When starting your job search, we recommend that you:

  • Search online for information about job descriptions, training plans and so on.
  • Ask people in your network about the qualities they think you possess. Consider: do I have the right qualities to carry out key tasks; which activities does the job actually involve; and what types of collaboration does it require?
  • Then write a description of your dream job. Ask key people – executives and potential colleagues – to read and comment on it. Correct parts that are unclear and carry out further research as necessary.

What to consider when making a job analysis

  • Job title –think of the possibilities and headlines.
  • Purpose – what are the most important tasks and responsibilities in the job description?
  • Features – what main activities does the job involve?
  • Organisational aspects – do you work better in a hierarchical organisation or in a matrix organisation?
  • Other aspects – what about work environment, career opportunities, management approach and salary expectations?
