Public to Private

Public to Private – making a smooth transition

The recent Public Sector layoffs, and a cautious business environment, mean that a higher percentage of ex-government employees are now in the job market and face the task of transitioning their experience to the private business sector. The job selection process for private organisations is less structured, with the absence of formal selection criteria. It can be difficult to know what direction you should head in.

The reality is, that although as a public employee you may have generous employment conditions, flexible work arrangements and extensive training and job-sharing options, these may not be as readily available in the private sector. Private employers have their eye firmly planted on the bottom line, their budget and profits. Employees hold greater individual accountability for overall business performance.

For those in the process of leaving the public sector and heading into the private, the first step involves reviewing the content of your Curriculum Vitae (CV) to ensure you are promoting yourself in the best possible light.
