Tips For Job Seekers…
Don’t wait until all the qualifications have been acquired: There is no compulsion to have all the qualifications while applying for a job. If you have them all you may actually turn out to be overqualified in regards to your other competitors. Stop wasting time and apply if you have the basic requirements.
Be authentic: Though this goes unsaid but it is still a desperate practice to lie in resume. Do not indulge in that as it will only take someone that far. Remember that seeking a job involves the individual interacting with people who do not know each other and the best assessment comes with genuineness. Same goes for interviews. Honesty is all around appreciated.
Negotiate your way: In a competitive market as we have now, to negotiate, is a must have skill. Individuals must be able to negotiate the conditions provided by each company. Their salaries, the benefits packages, the promotional structure and other terms. If you don’t find yourself to be a good negotiator take online classes for it or read books about it.
Be a known entity: This applies to people who already have a job in hand. It is perfectly okay to not like one’s job after sometime and choose to change. Even when you think you are satisfied with your current workplace keep yourself updated about other companies and their employees. Interact and connect through social media to create a familiarity so that when the expiry date comes for the current job you don’t have to start at ground zero.
