11 Jul Searching for a job
We spend most of our time at work and therefore, it is very important that work brings pleasure. When the choice of profession is made and the appropriate education is received, you can start searching, but first you need to decide what exactly you want to find. Many may be indignant, they say, today you don’t have to choose. Not true! Everyone always has a choice, the only thing that, for a young specialist, of course, is not to overestimate the requirements. Minimum wishes for working conditions should be defined, no matter what work becomes a heavy burden.
For example, how will it be easier for you to work in a team or alone, are overtime hours and business trips acceptable for you, what type of income is more suitable for you, a stable fixed salary or a salary plus a percentage of profit.
Now that we know what we want, we need to know where to look for it. The most accessible and perhaps the most effective resource for searching today is the Internet. Watching ads online should be a daily routine.
The chances will increase significantly if you fill out and post your own resume. A well-written resume is a great way to attract an employer. It should indicate all work experience and achievements, if any, and pay attention to the description of personal qualities relevant to this work. Possession of additional skills, such as knowledge of languages, possession of a driver’s license, etc.d. welcome.
For help in finding a job, you can contact the state employment center and recruitment agencies.
Announcements at stops and in transitions should not be torn down, self-respecting organizations will never hang leaflets on “gates”. Beware of offers that are too profitable, where the requirements for the employee are minimal and the pay is maximum, you can become a victim of scammers. The ad must contain information about the employer: full legal name, address, phone number. Before the interview, it will not be superfluous to make inquiries about a potential job, here again, the Internet will help. If something did not arouse your suspicions, you can safely call to clarify the working conditions and arrange a meeting.
There are some unwritten rules when it is better not to call – on Monday in the morning, on Friday here in the afternoon and an hour before the end of work. At this time, employees may simply not be up to you and you will not be able to get the necessary information.
It is better to come to the interview a little earlier than the specified time, this will emphasize your punctuality and interest. Be sure to bring a copy of your CV with you, as well as documents confirming your education and your identity.
Remember, an interview is not an exam or a test, it is a professional dialogue in which the employer is interested no less than you. After all, the goal of the organization is to get a competent specialist, and your goal is to prove that you are exactly that.
