A lot of people, unfortunately, lost their jobs due to the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns. However, now that we are seeing most, if not all, businesses opening up, there are more possibilities to get hired. In case you have been out of the game for too long, or you are just starting, here are 7 tips for job hunting.
Decide on career goals
Whether you are making a career change or getting your first job, you need to choose a career goal. Deciding the type of job you want helps you keep a focus when job searching, and it keeps you on a set career path.
Now that you have decided on the type of career you want, you need to put together a plan. Planning can include deciding on the amount of time you want to allocate towards job hunting each day, updating your resume and professional profiles, and keeping a list of jobs that you have already applied to.
Begin networking and resources
There is no greater way to find a job than through people you know. Contacting old friends or coworkers that have professional connections is a great way to navigate your job searching journey. They can be your greatest resource for finding a position.
Customize your resume
Your resume says a lot about you before you can say it yourself. That is why you should always make it the best it can be. You want it to be a representation of everything you can offer the company. This means you need to research the job description and ensure that you are highlighting those skills in your resume.
Prepare for the interview
The interview is your opportunity to sell yourself as the perfect person for the job. This requires some preparation on your part. You need to research the company and its values so you can speak to how you fit into that. Similarly, you should prepare some answers to commonly asked questions, and make sure to have your own questions prepared to ask the interviewer.
After you have done the interview, it is advised to follow-up with your interviewer. It is a good look, and it shows you are eager and interested. You can do this by sending a thank you note.
Job hunting is a lengthy process that may come with disappointments, but it should never discourage you. Just continue applying and hopefully, these tips can help you land a job!
