Essentials for getting a job(and staying with it)
Getting a job is not difficult if you possess the right skills. Most of us do a lot of hard work and research to clear our examinations so as to show our progress to the future employer. Similarly getting a job also requires a lot of hard work. It needs your entire stamina summed up for preparations for getting a job. There are some points that we need to look into while going for an interview. Since applying for a job happens online where you submit soft copies of your skills through emails, that part can be done easily. The difficult part is actually facing the future employers. When we say ‘difficult’, we do not mean to scare you …all we are trying to tell you is that you need to be impressive and present yourself accurately so that your employer simply snaps his fingers and say “Selected” or stamp your resume with the same.
Getting a job is not simply about pages filled up with qualifications, it is much more than that. It is more about your attitude that grabs the employer’s mind.
Everyone dresses to impress. Before you go for an interview, there are certain dress-ups that you need to take care of. The first and the most important one is your resume. If your resume is not well dressed, you cannot even enter the premises where there are oh!so significant people who do not cast an eye only on your attire before deciding whether you fit into their company or not.
Dressing up the resume doesn’t mean copy-paste your details on a handmade paper and then keeping that paper in a designer cover. To dress up your resume, you need to shape it well….where shaping means filling it up with relevant details where you keep it significantly short(the KISS formula works here, too, though in a different context). Your resume should be well organised, so before you apply for a job anywhere, please make sure that your resume undergoes professional hands so that they can restructure it based on the kind of companies you wish to apply in.
When you are called for an interview, make sure that you do a research on the company and the responsibilities you might have to take over. The employer must get a good idea that you are well informed about their achievements.
Once you get through the interview and it is time for you to attend to your job, there are certain significant points you must keep in mind. These include:
Dressing well for work.
Being punctual and staying productive until EOD.
Always remember to keep your mobiles on silent mode. Ringing mobiles cause disruption in work and may irritate and break the concentration of others, too. It is also important that you refrain from attending regular messages while at work unless extremely important. This task should be done when you take a break.
Use computers only for job-related works in the office.
Speak to everyone in a polite and soft tone.
