Do you need a job? Are you in a hurry to get one? Do you feel discouraged by the many unsuccessful job interviews? If your answer to all these questions is a definite yes then here are some quick tips that you should familiarize yourself with to help you land a job fast.
- Portray yourself as the most obvious fit: Go through the job description and other available information about the company and the open position very carefully and methodologically and draft a cover letter accordingly. For instance, a job seeker needs to make sure that they are mirroring the words and phrases in the job description and are showcasing their strengths in such a way that their strength aligns well with the areas that seem to be of importance to a particular job position. In short, lining it up is the key.
- Try not to limit yourself to submitting online applications only during a job search: What we mean here is a job seeker should try to line up with people on the inside of the companies where they are applying for a job as this would set them apart from the hundreds others applying for the same position. Decision-makers and/or the interviewers usually try to interview as well as appoint job seekers who come on a recommendation or through a personal referral before they start sorting through the huge pile of resumes that come in through the mail and online applications.
- Another very important tip is that learn how to use Professional Networks and are the best resource for career and job search networking and to find people working at companies of your interest.
- The most important job-search tip is that thank you matters and once an interviewee ends his interview, he or she must consider writing original and genuine thank you notes for each person who interviewed the job seeker. The speed in which one sends the notes, and their originality and quality are a few things that will make an impact.
