Finding a new job is an important activity you should carry on very carefully. This means that you should present yourself in a very serious, professional manner in order to convince the potential employer to hire you. In order to achieve your goal, you should follow some of these tips.
The thing you should always do is to constantly pay attention to even the smallest, insignificant detail. Why? Because you will offer a professional image to the employer. Therefore, you should always check your cover letter for misspellings or grammar errors, provide the employer with the information he/she has requested, pay attention to the gender of the hiring person. Always double check all the information you are sending to the employer to make sure it doesn’t contain any errors.
Another tip is to use your common sense whenever you are applying for a job. Use a polite, but firm tone for your cover letter; check it for spelling and grammar errors. Make sure you have followed the employer’s instructions. Follow this tip even if you are applying for the job thorough email.
Your resume is your mirror image in front of the employer. A good, professional resume will make the difference between getting the job and losing the job. Always remember that the resume is speaking for you so organise the resume in a logical, clear manner. You should provide as much work experience information as possible, although it doesn’t relate to the job you want to get. The reason for this is the fact that any work experience is good, and diverse areas of expertise show you are not afraid to accept new challenges. Ah, and remember to use a simple font, lose any embroideries. Keep things simple and professional.
Another tip you should take into consideration is to pay attention to the hiring person. Always address you application to the hiring person and make sure you have included the name and the position of that person. Some Human Resources managers like to see their name next to their position, so there’s no harm in tickling their ego a bit!
Hiring persons are busy people so remember to make things easy for them. This means to write your name and the name ‘resume’ in big letters so that they will know what they are dealing with.
And here is a universal tip that applies to any situation: keep things professional. Give up your cute, funny email address and use a more serious one to be taken serious by a potential employer. Give contact details and make sure you can be reached easily: provide a mobile phone number, get an answer machine or a voice mail.
Remember to have confidence in your abilities and to offer a professional image of yourself. Good luck hunting a new job!
