How to Find a desired job?

How to find the desired job?

Try out all the possibilities, but while still looking for a job, you might make at least one of the most common mistakes.

However, this does not mean that you are one of them. That is what we are here for. Avoiding these mistakes is not difficult, you just need to know what we are talking about. So, follow our tips and stir your job search process in the right way.

Mistake # 1 You do not know what you want to do

It will be easier for you if you have shortened your job search process before naming a position (Using several position titles while searching online is recommended).

However, before it comes to your resume, cover letter, or interview, have you already established the kind of job responsibilities acceptable to you? What is the ideal work environment or even schedule for you? This is an important aspect that you should already have in mind before applying for any vacancy.

Write down ideas for what the ideal work environment means to you. What it is supposed to include. Narrow down on at least five responsibilities that fit your interests and experience, including the ideal work schedule and environment for you. Then, compare this list with the description of the vacancy you want to apply for.

Of course, it will be very difficult for you to find the perfect position, but the search process will be more or less easy and you will get better results.

Mistake # 2 I will agree to all jobs indiscriminately

It is wise to consider several positions when looking for a job that will be acceptable for you to work on, but this should not go beyond your qualifications. This will increase your chances of employment.

Try not to apply for more than one position at a time, especially in the same company. This makes recruiters and hiring managers feel that you do not know what you want and are hopeless in the job search process. The recruiter himself has access to the entire database and if he decides to consider your resume in any other position, he will offer it to you. Therefore, sending a resume for several vacancies advertised in one company reduces the chances of being called for your interview. It is better to choose a specific position that is desirable and suitable for you and send a resume on it.

If you are still interested in two vacancies in one company, you can mention this in the cover letter or at the end of your CV.

Mistake # 3 Do not find information about the company

Put yourself in the position of a recruiter: you have little time and you have to make the right decision in a short time which candidate to call for an interview.

You only have two sheets to make a decision: a cover letter and a resume, and in most cases only the latter. Out of enthusiasm and professionalism, you are looking for evidence in the cover letter where it appears that the applicant has spent time finding information about the company.

In the cover letter, you only provide general information, this may be the reason for not calling your interview. Each cover letter should be relevant to a particular company. The hiring manager will see that you are really interested and spend time on their company.

To impress the employer, you need to know about the company's reputation, because you have a preconceived notion of where you start working.

Mistake # 4 Not paying attention to the interviewer

It is important to show your attention and positive attitude towards the recruiter. This includes thanking them for an interesting interview stressing the aspect that would help you grow and develop your career. Even if you are not happy with the interview, it will still make the employer feel good about you.

Mistake # 5 Only looking for a job when you are not employed

You are already employed, so why should you look for a job? Because you have a better opportunity. If you are not in the process of searching more or less, you will lose the chance of a better offer.

Maybe when you are already employed, you do not constantly visit employment sites and are not informed about the news, but actively receive information from social networks (e.g. Linkedin) and be open to new offers.
