Today the Internet gives us a lot of opportunities and tools to find a good job. The question is how well we know how to use them. You don't have to spend a lot of time to make your job search more effective. There are easy ways to fix mistakes in just a few minutes, organize your online data, and multiply your chances. You just need to know some tricks and secrets.
The first step is to determine the direction in which you want to find a job
To do this, you can monitor vacancies on job aggregator sites, the study offers in your city, and compare requirements and salaries. The convenience is that you can do this even from your cell phone. You only need access to the Internet.
A big advantage of such portals is that they are aggregators, i.e. here are posted the latest vacancies on the most popular and verified sites. These data are represented by a unified database, which offers a large set of filters for ease of use. The pages contain the latest offers from the employer. Filters are adjusted for specifics: salary level, employment type, work schedule, etc. Once you have selected the vacancy you are interested in, the system will redirect you to a page with detailed information about the vacancy and contacts for feedback. All you have to do is send your CV and start preparing yourself for the interview.
The second step is to create your CV
Your CV is your introduction, leaving the first but most lasting impression. So before you write it, think about where you are going to send it, who will receive it, how it will be read, and in which folder it will go. Include facts about your education and skills in your resume. Keep it short but informative.
There are CV sites that you can use to quickly fill in your information in a pre-designed template. Be sure to put a photo and some personal information on your CV, like hobbies and interests. This helps the employer get to know your personality and keep your resume out of 100 similar resumes. You can also find tips for preparing for and going to interviews on job sites. Tell only the truth, but only the truth that will benefit you. For example, write about your academic success, but don't mention that you often pay for essays to get good grades.
You need to understand what is going on in the job market and how much you are worth. Take the time to send out your CV regularly (preferably with a cover letter).
Actively "go" to interviews, do not refuse, even if you think the job is unattractive. To act confidently without turning your back on difficulties, in addition to your other areas of life, you need to get to know this area (the job market) as well.
After you get to a job interview, understand how the employer thinks.
Usually, the employer's thinking is that the only thing that lifts the company is the right people in their positions. It's silly to take someone whose only chance of going up is to get on board our ship. First of all, we need to answer the question of whether he will help us fly even more steadily, higher and sharper upward. An employee's productivity and knowledge are what help him and us fly, and what may hinder him and us is his difficult character or personality not suited to the particular job. So, productivity, knowledge, and personal qualities should be separated, looking first all at the first and assessing to what extent the second will or will not hinder him and us.
And also, some people are used to working hard and giving their energy, and some are used to taking only. And it is necessary to make sure that the person is a hard worker.
And they also understand that finding a productive employee is only a small part of the job, but keeping him, or involved, to motivate - is the most difficult and important.
"Become my friend"
Each profession has experts and amateurs. The recruiter sphere is no exception.
But regardless of the level of expertise, there is one thing that all human resource personnel has in common - the task of closing the position on time, with the right candidate. And an HR person will be very happy with such a "diamond" and will do anything to help him or she get through all the interview stages and get into the company.
Be condescending. Incompetent HR specialists are those who have not been trained in a coherent, effective hiring technique and have not been given the right tools. Incompetent HR people are a reflection of their managers, who fundamentally neglect their employees, not caring who they have on the front lines. Don't be hard on them, but rather help them understand you and they will surely help you.
