Finding a job followed by performing the job is a great art. For a successful job search having a targeted cover letter, well written resume, mention of professional experiences and connections is not enough. Here are some quick tips to standout from the crowd and win in any job race.
Keep detailed records and stay in job search mode
Keep all your job search records up to date such as your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. Include all your professional records of our current job on at least a monthly basis and incorporate them in to your resume.
If you don’t get shortlisted in your resume, then go through your resume once and tweak them if required. Make self analysis before sending for another job application to get ready for another job search.
Know your negotiables, job and employer
Never send job applications randomly for the job vacancies you come across with the hope that something will click. Think about what would give you a good career and a company good fit. Then it will create opportunities to apply for suitable roles. Consider what type of employer would be perfect for your personality and work style. List out your strengths and achievements of your current job and past jobs that you have enjoyed the most and write down them.
Don’t just focus on the job title, know what you would like in a job
When you are searching for the job then don’t look at the job title. When you are looking for a specific job then search based on the specific skills you have and consider for a different role that you hadn’t considered.
Basically, your current skills guided to the job role that may lead you to the job you like. Sometimes, based on the job title you are guided to a job that you are not skilled for. So, it’s better to match your skills when you are applying for your next job.
