Regional director Ben Hiles said provided a candidate knows what they want from a position and why they want it they can ride the jobs boom to success.
"In such a market candidates should be able to advance their career and gain a meaningful and satisfying position related to their skills and experience," Hiles said.
"Yet far too often we still hear candidates say they are unhappy in their current role. When asked about the reasons, they admit to accepting an offer because the salary was higher than another vacancy or because they wanted to move from a previous position quickly and didn't take the time to research the range of opportunities available.
"Others say they are finding their search unproductive or frustrating, but then admit they have been haphazardly applying for vacancies because they really don't know what they are looking for. These candidates often say: 'I'm looking for anything'."
Hiles said in today's job market candidates should be able to advance their career and find a meaningful position related to their skills and experience that will assist them to reach their career goals.
According to Hays Resources & Mining you should determine where you want to be in five and 10 years time, and seek out the roles that will enable you to work towards this goal.
"Given the current positive labour market, there has never been a better time to map your career and take advantage of the high level of vacancy activity to get to where you ultimately want to be," Hiles said.
