Job hunting isn’t easy it’s full of dejection, insecurities and anxiety. In order to increase your options, look up the jobs available in your region. This helps in narrowing down on the opportunities near you before going farther afield. Check out the skill set required for the jobs against your own qualifications. If there is a particular organization that have the type of job you’re looking for, look them up in their website and find out if they have any opening. You can also look up recruiting companies that may help you in finding a job.
UPDATE OR WRITE YOUR RESUME
Once you’ve gathered all the information it’s time to update or begin to write a comprehensive curriculum vitae i.e. CV. Put down all the examples that help you come across as a professional and have an understanding of the job. If you have any previous experience, note them down and explain how that has helped you or will help you in improving if given the position. Listing down reliable referees also helps to vouch for your capabilities and your character as a person.
GO THROUGH YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA
This is a platform your future employer and recruiting companies may use to find out more about you. The kind of information you post online may give a rough idea as to the kind of person you are. If its unsuitable it’s always good to change it to private viewing so that it doesn’t cost you professionally.
APPLYING FOR A JOB
Once you hear about an opening get your documents ready. Write a cover letter and attach your CV. It is always smart to inform your referees that you have listed them just in case they get called upon. This way they are prepared to give a good testimonial about you.
