Finding Work

Now lets get down to the serious work of jobs hunting

Lets start by focusing on YOU.

The first thing to remember is :-

“YOU ONLY HAVE ONE CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION”

Please think about that for a moment.…

First approach, your appearance at first contact, your telephone manner when the call comes, arriving on time, quality of your resume, how you look, what your wearing are critical points when making first contact.
You know without effort, preparation and determination you’re not going to get that sort after position………… are you?

What about the company you are trying to convince to employee you, do some research on that company, its products, find out about its history, arm yourself ready for that interview, information is king and there’s plenty of it available on the internet, books and libraries.

Your not into sales! What? You will need to sell your self!!! Got it?

Many positions are never publicly posted, employers don’t want to be bombarded with a lot of unqualified candidates that they have to weed through to find the jewels.

It doesn’t matter if you 20 or 50 that resume needs to be up to date, give concrete examples of how your abilities boosted a former employer’s bottom line. Be brief but concise, ask yourself why would XYZ employer want to employee ME.Now answer that question in your resume.

Are you happy with it?

Does it make a prospective employer want to pick up the telephone and call you?

What about that initial letter…avoid these mistakes.

Many professionals spend hours writing and re-writing their cover letter. With each resume submission, we tend to revise our cover letter to make sure that it is personalized for the position we are applying for. While we spend so much time on the content of the cover letter, we seem to disregard a very important and prominent area of the letter – the address line. Most mistakes in the cover letter are made in the address line. This is very problematic as this is the first piece of information that the potential employer sees on your resume. If mistakes are made in the address line, it is likely that the potential employer will discard the letter and you will lose an opportunity to be considered as a candidate for the job that you want. The following three mistakes are most common in addressing the cover letter and should be considered before your cover letter is sent to the employer:

A. Not addressing the letter to a person. This is a big mistake in the world of cover letters. Generic greetings, such as “To whom it may concern” or “Dear Human Resources Team,” are not favorable. If the job description or posting does not include the contact person, you will need to do some research to find out who the appropriate contact is for the job you are applying for. Additionally, avoid addressing the letter to a job title. Call the organization and find out who is the hiring manager or the recruiter for the job, and address the letter directly to them. In case it is impossible to find out who the appropriate contact is, it is often recommended that you leave off any generic greetings and simply begin the cover letter.

B. Misspelling the name of the organization. Even if you are addressing your cover letter to a specific person, you will still need to include the name of the company and their address. Always make sure that the company name is spelled correctly. Hiring managers and recruiters know from experience that misspelling the company name is a common mistake, but it’s the easiest one to avoid. Triple-check the company name on your cover letter. If your potential employer receives the letter with the incorrect company name, your letter will never make it past the first person who receives it.

C. Your first sentence doesn’t explain why you are contacting the company. This is a common mistake as many people assume that stating that you are contacting the company regarding employment, as you are including your resume, is unnecessary. However, this is not the case. Let your potential employer exactly why you are contacting them; state the title of the job you are interested in, and how your qualifications make you an ideal candidate for the job. Your first statement just like your first impression needs to be straight forward, energetic, and positive, and it should invite the employer to read through the rest of the cover letter. Bland and generic opening statements will result in disinterest on the part of your employer, and your resume will not get pass the first review.

There is plenty of help here to ensure you get that all important first contact correct.

Companies are looking for employees who can improve their bottom line. Finding out what problems a company may have and then positioning yourself as a solution to that problem is a really important way to set yourself apart from a person who comes to the interview and just answers questions. Do the research it doesn’t matter what the job opportunity, research the company.

Finally, if you’re out of work perhaps for the first time in you adult life or looking for your first job, do not be ashamed of this situation, network yourself, the way you are going to find your next opportunity is through a network of people who know what you can do. Networking isn’t about who you know, it’s about who your friends know.
