How to find a job
  • Make a Resume
  • Your resume is not just the list of your
    credentials and previous work experience-it also
    represents
  • you. Choose a template that's easy on the eyes,
    in a standard format, without using more than two
  • fonts and two columns. Update your work
    experience, addresses and telephone numbers. Make
  • sure that your grammar and spelling are correct.
    Do not include information prior to high school
  • and do not try to make your resume longer than it
    is those reviewing the resume will see right
  • through it. Keep your resume concise, stressing
    your past accomplishments, and your potential
  • employer will remember your name.

How to find a job
  • Evaluate Your Career Path
  • Potential employers prefer those who have a
    distinct career path over those who seem to have
    a
  • chain of seemingly unrelated jobs. Sit down and
    have yourself evaluate your career path so far.
  • What did you finish in school? What were your
    extra-curricular activities? What are the things
    you
  • used to do on the side but never professionally?
    If you do have a seemingly erratic job history,
    you
  • can try to find the common denominator in all the
    jobs you've had, and explain it during the
  • interview. Knowing what you can do and what
    interests you will save you a lot of time in your
    job
  • search.

How to find a job
  • Look at Job Listings
  • Look up job listings from your local newspapers,
    and on job listing websites online. Be more
  • specific and try out different key words when
    narrowing down your job search. Social networking
  • sites like Facebook and LinkedIn also provide
    opportunities for you to find jobs within your
    own
  • social network.
  • When looking at job listings, learn how to read
    between the lines. Even if you do not fit a minor
  • requirement, pass a resume. If you only fit the
    minimum requirements, pass the resume anyway.
  • What is there to lose, right?

How to find a job
  • Update Your Skills
  • In this day and age of fast technology, it's
    almost unacceptable for an applicant not to have
    the
  • skills to even turn a computer on. Applicants
    with more experience in a field may find
    themselves
  • passed over in favor of more tech-savvy
    individuals.
  • Choose Where to Follow Through
  • Sometimes, it happens that we don't know much
    more about the opening we applied for until we
  • are called for an interview. Take this as an
    opportunity to inquire about the job, at least
    the salary
  • and the benefits, if they haven't been mentioned
    in the job opening yet. Choosing the job
  • interviews and the acceptable salary rates will
    work for you in the long run. It will also save
    you the
  • trouble of having to go to an interview for a job
    that you're not really interested in.

How to find a job
  • Give a Good Interview
  • Do some research on your potential employer prior
    to your interview. Read up on the latest news,
  • developments and what issues may be affecting
    them. Knowing the company better will give you a
  • chance to tailor your strengths and experience to
    their current and future needs. This will also
  • enable you to answer their questions more
    intelligently, such as questions asking you why
    you
  • would want to work in their company, or what you
    can offer them as an employee.
