Edited by Debbie, Eng, Deepthi Gottumukkala, Maria and 2 others
You can have success in finding the right job! It may be a difficult ordeal but is definitely possible. Nothing comes easy especially in a very competitive world. It takes great amount of effort, determination, and consistency to land your dream job. If we tend to go find employment whenever we feel like it and fill out a few applications then just go home to sit and wait, then we will never find a job that way. Draw inspiration from the colony of ants. These insects are known for its rock-solid persistence and determination. Have you ever put your foot in their pathway? You can observe then that the ant will never turn back or get dissuaded by any obstacles but will try to get through in one way or another and will even try to climb over your foot. Even a small ant will not give up amidst difficulty, in the same way that people should never get disheartened and give up on finding a decent job. What are some other things we can do?
Think about a company or organization in your area you would be interested in working for. Do extensive research on the company and find out what is required of the position. Do you have the qualifications needed to meet the position? Are you a diligent worker and will do what it takes to get the job done? If you decide to apply for the position, the employer will be impressed by your knowledge of how the company works and your job capabilities and skills that fit the position. Because you were well-prepared, you will feel confident and good about yourself! Employers are drawn to people who are self-assured and driven to get the job done. Where are some places we can look for jobs? It actually depends on the skills you have and what industry you cater to.
You can check out and browse newspaper job advertisements. Do some extensive networking around the neighborhood or from trusted sources you know such as from colleagues, private and government employment agencies, and friends who already got a job are other sources you can tap into. Search online for myriad of job openings. Job fairs are a good idea too!
Tips For Success
- 1Manage your Portfolio.Hiring the total package and a complete fit to the job specification is important to any Human Resource Manager or employer. Fact is, there are lots of competition out there and in order to be singled out and handpicked from a pool of job applicants, then you must know how to draw the spotlight on your skills and experiences. When job hunting, even the smallest details make a huge difference and can provide you the mileage you need to bag that dream job. First off, you must know yourself both on a personal and professional domain. How will you be able to effectively sell or endorse yourself to an employer if you do not know what you are capable of? Build up your resume or curriculum vitae (CV). If you already have one crafted then you must review and make the necessary revisions to make it as up-to-date as possible. Pay extra attention to the email addresses and phone numbers enlisted to make sure that you have the most recent data encoded. Follow a standard or desired format for your resume to make it as neat, crisp, concise, and comprehensive as possible. You must also take time to sort out and compile the list of your work experiences, training program certifications, awards, recommendations, and other documents that can beef up your credentials. If you have acquired additional skills which may or may not be related to your industry then include those as such could also provide an extra boost to your portfolio. Mapping out your resume and compiling vital documents can also help you review and assess your skill set and educational as well as career background which can help you ace the interview. A complete knowledge and understanding of your competency, personality, and skills will enable you to sell yourself to any employer. This will help you to think ahead and be spontaneous especially during the interview or selection process. Nobody would want to hire someone utterly clueless, disorganized, and incapable of explaining or discussing his own capabilities and background. One important thing to note is that as much as your skills and track record is important to getting hired, there are other vital factors that many employers take into consideration such as your personality, social or communication skills, attitude, and work ethics. Get everything you need compiled in your portfolio as this will be your primary tool in getting the job that you want. This will also come in handy as a reference whenever you need to discuss or elaborate on some past projects you have worked on or related expertise that your potential employer might need from you.Advertisement
