Today’s economy is so tough that you wonder if you can get a job at all, much less the one you want. It is true that if that job that you want exists, then there is a way you can get it. Just think long term.
Ways to get the job you want
Be that person the employer wishes to hire
Do not just think about the job you want, think about the exact person your employer wants to hire. And then take steps to becoming that person. If work experience is what you need, then get it, if it’s a college degree, acquire one. If certain character traits are what you need, develop them. Do not just find the right job, be the right candidate for that job.
Work your way up
It does not mean that you will never get the job if you did not get hired today. You can find a related position in another company or a lower position in the same company. This way you can get the additional experience you require for working your way up to the position you want. Often, companies give priority to people that are already working in the company.
Sometimes you do not need qualifications to get the job, knowing the right people is what you need. Make connections with other people in the same field to increase your visibility. Achieve this by attending conferences and events, joining professional companies and volunteering.
Do not burn bridges
When an employer is thinking about hiring you, she or he will always call your previous employer to know the kind of employee you are. So it is crucial that you always perform well no matter the type of job. Even if the job you have is a temporary one, work just as hard. This will get you noticed and will make your former employer give your new employer positive reviews when he calls.
Polish your CV
A resume itself might not earn you a job, but a bad resume can prevent you from getting one. Interviewers who have a lot of resumes to go through usually look for an excuse to throw them away to reduce the list. If your resume is missing or it has irrelevant information, or it is full of errors, it will be thrown down the recycle bin.
Do not give up or get discouraged if you do not land your dream job today, keep pressing on, and tomorrow might be your day.…
