Do your research

As someone new to Malta, it's important to research the job market before you arrive. What are the most in-demand industries? Which companies are hiring? What skills do employers value? Are there recruiting agencies that can help you? (Hint: We're one of them!) Answering these questions will help you focus your job search and make the most of your time.

Network

Once you've arrived in Malta, it's time to start networking. Get connected with as many people as possible – attend industry events, join professional groups, and reach out to contacts you know. The more people you know, the more likely you are to hear about job opportunities. 

Tailor your CV and cover letter

Each application should be tailored to the specific role you're applying for. This means taking the time to research the company and making sure your CV and cover letter reflect the skills and experience that they're looking for. Don't forget about LinkedIn. In today’s digital world, your LinkedIn profile is just as important as your CV. Make sure it's up-to-date and includes a professional headshot. Use keywords that will help you show up in searches and showcase your skills and experience with endorsements and recommendations. Once you've done your research, targeted your applications, and polished up your online presence, it's time to start applying for jobs!

Be patient

Finding the right job in Malta can take time, but eventually you will find the right opportunity. You can also think outside the box. Don't limit yourself to traditional jobs in your field – be open to new opportunities. With a small job market, you may need to get creative and think outside the box to find work that matches your skillset. Consider freelance work, internships, or starting your own business. Also, be prepared for rejection. It's not unusual to face rejection when searching for a job in Malta – even if you have the perfect qualifications and experience. Don't let this discourage you; keep putting yourself out there and eventually you will find success.
