When is the Best Time to Look for a Job?

At Seltek, we certainly notice times of the year when the job market is more lively than others. Christmas and the summer vacation are obviously slow times, the new year and the start of the ‘academic’ year (when presumably people return from several weeks sitting on a beach somewhere, wondering about their future) are periods of sometimes frenzied activity.


Readers of tealeaves, stargazers and soothsayers may tell you that one time is more auspicious than others. I decided to research the internet to find an answer to the question of when it is better to look for a new job.

How to Make Up Your Mind to Succeed!

Mind-set is the key to finding success…


Well-intentioned parents have unwittingly left their kids defenseless against failure. The current generation of millennials (born between 1980 and 2001) grew up playing sports where scores and performance were downplayed because “everyone’s a winner.” And their report cards had more positive spin than an AIG press release. As a result, Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, PhD, calls them the “overpraised generation.” Fortunately, once you understand the situation, there’s some quick corrective action that can be taken. And even if you’re well past your child-rearing years, her advice will help you better withstand setbacks.


Dweck has been studying how people handle failure for 40 years. Her research has led her to identify two distinct mind-sets that dramatically influence how we react to it.

  • Are you interested in joining a well-established company with niche instrumentation and a global customer base?

  • Would you enjoy the opportunity to travel internationally?

This role is a varied one, combining field applications, servicing instruments, office based technical support of both customers and the office team and some promotional work.

You should also have some experience in a customer facing role, this does not have to be in science. The products have a biochemistry focus but your degree background is not limiting so physics, chemistry or similar would also be fully considered.

A very rare opportunity has become available for an experienced Up-Stream Clinical Marketer within a billion dollar medical devices organisation.

If you are looking to move into a more strategic, international position, with significant responsibility, this may be the ideal opportunity for you.

As a specialist in the ultrasound business unit, you will have a clinical background in this field, in addition to experience in a commercial environment.

To ensure the company maintains its position at the forefront of cutting edge medical developments, the purpose of this role will be to work closely with key opinion leaders across Europe and develop ideas to feed back to the global R&D facilities.
