The world is very dynamic. It is ever-increasing evolving. To keep up and stay relevant, you have to be willing to evolve with it, learn new things and improve your knowledge on relevant fields.
Getting a job these days depends on how much you’re willing to put into being hire-able. If you are jobless and you want to change that, you must be willing to do the following…
YOUR RESUME MUST SPEAK FOR YOU
Before you meet up with a prospective employer, they’ll have to see your résumé first. Now, while your resume should include your skills, educational background and other personal information, it should also be seen as RELEVANT to the sector.
Depending on the type of job that you’re applying for, it’s possible that certain skills or interests are helpful to include, which this type of employer is certain to look out for. Update your résumé to ensure it taps into the interest of the employer, and that it’s accurate and up-to-date too. Don’t forget to go over every detail to check for grammatical errors.
YOU MAY WANT TO GET A BUSINESS CARD
The idea is to look as professional and special as possible. Not everyone understands the importance of attaching a business card to their CV. Not only is a personal business card useful to clip onto the top of a resume when sending one out, you can also hand them out if you ever find yourself at a job fair. It gives people a quick idea of your brand, and easier access to you. You can even get them free if you have someone around who’s into professional printing.
IMPROVE ON YOUR INTERVIEW SKILLS
No job is gotten without an interview; unless your family or close buddy runs the place. So it’s extremely important that you work on your interview skills. Read up on common interview questions, and come up with the best answers you can provide for them. Do your research. Learn everything you can about the company, and don’t forget that interviews go different ways these days, you can find yourself facing one or two panelists if you’re lucky, otherwise, you may face up to 5. Work on your confidence level too.
LOOK VERY PRESENTABLE
What’s your dress sense like? Do you need a little help picking out a dress shirt and tie, or a blouse that goes well with your business suit? If you’re looking to impress, then consider going shopping for something more modern. Take along a friend who’s got a good eye for fashion and see if they can help you pick out something appropriate.
