How to Get a Job

Whether you're looking for your very first job, switching careers, or re-entering
the job market after an extended absence, finding a job requires two main tasks:
understanding yourself and understanding the job market. Presuming you've
already chosen a career and are currently searching for jobs, here are several
ways to actually get a job.
Steps:
Network: The best companies to work for tend to rely heavily (up to 40%) on
employee referrals. Make a list of all of your friends, relatives, and acquaintances.
Call each one and ask them if they know of any openings that they could
recommend you for. Don't be too humble or apologetic. Tell them what you've
been looking for, but let them know that you're flexible and that if they have any
suggestions, you're open to them. This is not the time to be picky about jobs; a
connection can often get your foot in the door, and you can negotiate pay or
switch positions later once you've gained experience and established your good
reputation.
Touch base with all of your references. The purpose of this is twofold. You can ask
them for leads and you'll also be refreshing their memory of you in their mind.
(Hopefully their memory of you is a good one, or else you shouldn't be putting
them down as a reference.) If a potential employer calls them, they won't
hesitate as much when remembering who you are.
Volunteer: If you aren't already, start volunteering for an organization that
focuses on something that you're passionate about. You may end up doing boring
or easy work in the beginning but as you stick around and demonstrate your
commitment, you'll be given more responsibilities. Not only will you be helping
others, but you'll also be gaining references. You should emphasize your
volunteer experience on your resume, as companies that treat their employees
well tend to favor candidates who help the community somehow.

Develop your personal elevator pitch: Many structured interviews,


particularly those at large companies, start with a question like "tell me about
yourself." The interviewer doesn't really want you to go back to grade school and
talk about your childhood. This is a specific question with a specific answer...in
two minutes or so, the interviewer wants to get you to relax and loosen out your
vocal cords, understand your background, your accomplishments, why you want
to work at XYZ Company and what your future goals are.
Prepare for a behavioral interview: You might be asked to describe problems
you've encountered in the past and how you handled them or you'll be given a
hypothetical situation and asked what you would do. They'll basically want to
know how you'll perform when faced with obstacles in the position you're
interviewing for. Be able to give honest, detailed examples from your past, even if
the question is hypothetical (e.g. "I would contact the customer directly, based on
my past experience in a different situation in which the customer was very
pleased to receive a phone call from the supervisor"). You might find yourself
listing facts--if so, remember that in this kind of interview, you need to tell a
story. Some questions you might be asked are:

"Describe a time you had to work with someone you didn't like."
"Tell me about a time when you had to stick by a decision you had made,
even though it made you very unpopular."

"Give us an example of something particularly innovative that you have


done that made a difference in the workplace."

"How would you handle an employee who's consistently late?"

Research the company: Don't just do an Internet search, memorize their


mission, and be done with it. If it's a retail company, visit a few of their stores,
observe the customers, and even strike up a few conversations. Talk to existing
employees--ask them what it's like working there, how long the position has been
open, and what you can do to increase your chances of getting it. Become
familiar with the history of the company. Who started it? Where? Who runs it
now? Be creative, and out do the other candidates.
Settle down: If you've moved around a lot, be prepared to offer a good reason
for it. Otherwise, you'll need to make a good case for why you want to stick
around in the area where the job is located. A company doesn't want to hire
someone with wanderlust who still wants to relocate. Be prepared to outline why
you are where you are today, how long you intend to stay there, and why. Give
specific reasons like "This county has the best school systems in the entire state,
and I have a daughter who might find the cure for cancer" or "I was drawn to this
area because it's at the cutting edge of innovation for this business and I want to
be a part of that." The more details, names, and specifics, the better.

Make a list of work-related skills you'd like to learn: Your employer will be
interested in hearing about how you intend to become a better employee. Think
about which skills will make you more competent in the position you're applying
for. Public speaking, project management, team leading, and computer programs
are usually beneficial. Find some books and upcoming conferences that would
significantly improve your abilities. In an interview, tell the employer what you're
reading and learning and that you'd like to continue doing so. This is a list of the
7 most important job skills, wanted by employers, that a job seeker must have to
be sure of landing a good job and just as importantly, keeping it.

The ability to find relevant information: Research Skill Job seekers


should possess the ability to systematically find relevant information
through research not because they want a research job, but in order to do
effective searches for the data needed by a particular activity.
Logical thinking: Information Handling. Most businesses regard the ability
to handle and organize information to produce effective solutions as one of
the top skills employers want. The ability to make sensible solutions
regarding a spending proposal or an internal activity is valued.

IT Skill: Technological Ability Most job openings will require people who are
IT or computer literate or know how to operate different machines and
office equipment, whether a PC or multi-function copier and scanner. This
doesn't mean that employers need people who are technology graduates.
The simple fact that job seekers know the basic principles of using the
technology is sufficient.

Getting your words understood: Communication Skills Employers tend


to value and hire people who are able to express their thoughts efficiently
through verbal and written communication. People who land a good job
easily are usually those who are adept in speaking and writing.

Efficiency: Organizational Skills Organization is extremely important to


maintain a harmonious working relationship in the company and the
opposite, disorganization costs money. Hence, most employers want people
who know how to arrange their work through methods that maintain
orderliness in the workplace.

Getting on with others: Interpersonal Skill Because the working


environment consists of various kinds of personalities and people with
different backgrounds, it is essential to possess the skill of communicating
and working with people from different walks of life.

Career Advancement: Professional Growth Employers prefer to hire


people who are able to create a plan that will generate maximum personal
and career growth. This means that you are willing to improve yourself
professionally by learning new skills to keep up with developments in the
workplace. These are just some of the top skills employers want. Take note

of these skills which demonstrate how to get the job and be successful in
your every job seeking endeavor. From Your-Career-Change.com
Cold call: Locate a specific person who can help you (usually the human
resources or hiring manager at a company or organization you're interested in).
Call that person and ask if they are hiring, but do not become discouraged if they
are not. Ask what kind of qualifications they look for or if they have apprentice or
government sponsored work programs. Ask if you can send your resume
indicating what field you want to go into. Indicate whether you would accept a
lesser job and work up.

Reflect after each phone call on what went well and what did not. You may
need to write out some standard answers on your list of skills so you can
speak fluently. You may need to get some additional training to break into
your chosen field. None of this means you cannot get a good job, only that
you need to become further prepared to do so.

Change your attitude: There's a difference between making phone calls and
going to interviews thinking "I'm looking for a job" versus "I'm here to do the
work you need to have done. When you're looking to get a job, you're expecting
someone to give something to you, so you focus on impressing them. Yes, it's
important to make a good impression, but it's even more important to
demonstrate your desire and ability to help. Everything that you write and say
should be preceded silently by the statement "This is how I can help your
business succeed."
Fit the job to the skills rather than the other way around: Many people
search for jobs, then try to see how they can "tweak" the way they present their
own skills and experiences to fit the job description. Instead, try something
different. Make a list of all of your skills, determine which kinds of businesses and
industries need them most (ask around for advice if you need to) and find
businesses that will benefit from having you and your skills around. It's important
the nature of the job fits your personality and salary requirements; otherwise
you'll have spent a significant amount of time to find a day job you dread getting
up for every morning.
Tips:

The surest way to obtaining employment is to stop complaining about no


work, get off the couch and go knock on doors with resume in hand. If you
do that all day, every day, you will then be choosing which job you are
willing to take. This tactic is independent of any economic times. They don't
call them go-getters for nothing. Anything less than that and you're hoping
someone feels sorry for you.
Specify your resume to a specific job offering: Remove items which are less
specific to the talents the job calls for

Realize that you may have to work your way up. For example, if you want to
become an apparel buyer, work for a company that manufactures or sells
such goods.

Remember you are doing some HR workers a favor when you present
yourself and they do not have to go out and find workers like you.

One
task
who
paid

Be willing to spend some time learning about the job and the people that
work there, maybe they like turkey sandwiches, bring them one, you could
get a promotion to a better starting position.

Of course, it's not everything, but it is best to dress appropriately to create


the right impression.

Use placement agencies. They sometimes keep a good chunk of your


income for themselves, but they can get you decent placements, so you
can improve that resume. Never go to just one agency. Always go to as
many as possible. It is easy and it increases your chances a lot!

Treat your search as a full time exercise: the job of getting a job. You are
employed by yourself as a sales person/marketing person selling the
product you.

option is to be self-employed or an entrepreneur, in which case your


is not so much to find and get a job, but to create a job. Most people
work for themselves, however, often started off with a "day job" that
the bills until their preferred income source could take over.
