Applying for a job and successfully securing one is by no means a small feat. It takes the right connections, resume, interview skills and qualifications to secure a well-paying job. And this also explains why most of us stress out and spend sleepless nights searching and applying for a job. But how can you make sure that the next time you apply for a job the HRs look for you and not the other way round? Here’s how.
A killer resume doesn’t necessarily mean scoring straight As in college and high schools. It means having a detailed, well-structured and customized resume. Something that portrays you as a focused, successful and goal-oriented individual. In fact, contrary to what most people think, a hiring manager can tell a lot about you from your resume. If it comes off as choppy, erroneous and inaccurate, then chances are they might also think the same of you.
It is no secret that we’re all prone to procrastination and last-minute rushing. However, when it come to applying for a job, most employers will look for traits of lack of punctuality by how fast you respond to the vacancy post. So, if you’re the type who waits until the last day to mail your application, then get prepared for a few more heart-wrenching emails.
The thing about interview skills is that no one will ever teach you how to apply them in real-life situations. You must be willing to attend more interviews than you can count before someone is finally impressed by how conduct yourself in those crucial 15 minutes. As you’ll later come to find out, a 10-minutes interview can easily make or break your chances of landing a good job i.e, regardless of how attractive your resume is. Therefore, dedicate as much time as possible in improving your conversational and interpersonal skills in advance.
