It is easy to get discouraged if you have lost a good job or are employed for some time. Salma, a fashion designer in Kenya, says: “When I lost my job, I hoped that I would find another. But I was depressed as months passed without getting a job. Eventually, it was difficult for me to talk about it with my friends. ”
How can you cope with feelings of despair? The book is a Job in 30 Days or Less says, “It is best to set your schedule as a 'working day' to start the day you know what you should do. In addition, they say that “every day you have to start dressing as if you are going to work.” Why? “Dressing appropriately will make you more confident even when talking on the phone.”
You should see the job of finding work as your job, no matter how long it takes you. Katharina, mentioned earlier, followed the same procedure. He says: “I got the address and phone numbers of employers from the government office to help people find work. I answered the advertisements published in newspapers. I checked the phone book and wrote a list of companies that might have job opportunities that were not yet advertised, and then contacted them. I also wrote a short story about my knowledge and skills and sent it to those companies. ”After finding a job using the same procedure, Salma got a good job.
Search for unadvertised Jobs
The fisherman with the largest net is the most likely to catch fish. Similarly, knowing how to expand your “net” will make you more likely to get a job. If you are looking for a job by simply responding to the advertisements in newspapers or on the Internet, you may be out of work. Many jobs will not be announced. How can you search for these jobs?
In addition to responding to advertisements as Salma did, you should set aside every week of phone calls to the companies you think might have a job you can do. Don't wait until these works are advertised. If the manager tells you that there is no work, ask him if he knows the companies that have job opportunities and the person to talk to. If you recommend a company, arrange a contact with the company by name
Provide Full Information on Education and Skills
Those who apply for management work, should write and distribute information about their education and skills. But even if you are looking for a job, the full information about your education and skills can be very helpful. Salumu, a work counselor in United State, says: “Information about your education and skills informs employers about you and what you have accomplished and why they need you.”
What will you write? Enter your full name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. Specify your goal. Specify the knowledge you have and also the exercises and skills you have found related to the job you are looking for. Provide full information about the tasks you have done before. Specify what you have done and the projects you have achieved and the benefits you have brought to the company you were working for. Also mention what you did in your previous work that makes you worthy of the job you are looking for.
Get Ready Well For Interview Session
How will you prepare for the interview? You may want to do research about the company you want to work for. The more you know about the company, the better you will do during the interview. Your research will also help you know if the company really has the job you want or if you would like to do it.
Keep your vision
Many employers like to know more about the person they want to employ, not only their ability to work, but also your loyalty, what kind of person you are in self-respect. So make sure you do not damage your ’image through the type of friends you have, type twitts, status, photo etc you put in social networks like Facebook, and Twitter. Also, if you want to leave work from some organization, try to leave it peacefully, so that later your other employers want to know what kind of employee was before they responded to the bad news.
