Getting into the right mindset, preparing yourself to find the right job opportunity can be a daunting task. It is a situation that you need to get it right the first time!
For you to be successful at securing the job you wish for, you need to prepare accordingly. Preparation is key on your journey to success.
So where do I start you may ask?
Firstly, you need to have a CV, a professional CV that contains the correct information which displays your skills as well as your capabilities. Many CV templates are available on the internet, or you may contact a recruiter to assist you with that. A CV consists of your contact details, academic background, achievements, extracurricular activities, leadership skills and sporting activities. There is sufficient help on the internet in terms of CV format, resume of professional summaries. Make use of these!
Connect with the relevant groups on social media. Whether you are into finance, engineering, commercial, medical, aviation etc. industries, subscribe to these groups and keep abreast with the relevant postings. Follow the companies/employers you are interested in on social media, as they often post their vacancies on the website. It is YOUR duty to stay “connected”.
Refrain from applying to every single job advert you see. It sends a message of desperation, and that is certainly not what you wish to communicate. Ensure that the jobs you apply for are suitable to your skills as well as experience or field of study. Employers are also looking out for common sense – use it wisely!
Research and connect with suitable recruiters who specialize in your field of study and expertise. Top recruiters can guide you, assist with questions as well as career counselling that will help you in making the right decisions.
Lastly, it is not WHAT you know, but WHO you know. Never be afraid to ask the people you know for advice as well as a career opportunity. You never know who can open that door for you!
