If you are someone who is looking for a job, we have a few suggestions as to how you can bag an interview from whichever company you may choose. Following are a few tips that you need to keep in mind:
Build your CV:
Take this time to work on your CV, sort out the information you have put in there, make it more crisp, clean and appealing. Build your CV in such a way that it is self explanatory and not overly complicated. For more tips on how to create a perfect CV, visit our blog
Monitor the target company’s social media presence:
With social media becoming such an integral part of every company’s hiring process, it makes the most sense to monitor the activities there on a daily basis. Look out for any hiring related posts that the company might have put up and jump onto the opportunity with a positive attitude.
Build your Linkedin network:
Linkedin is decidedly the best professional platform right now, If used correctly, it can open whatever doors you dream of and really boost your professional journey. Edit your LinkedIn profile in such a way that it catches the attention of all the megafirms out there. Reach out to the HR’s in your network and connect with new professionals with your CV and a short summary about yourself/your work. Visit our blog (insert link for the linked blog) for more tips on how to use LinkedIn in the best possible way.
Apply through company websites:
Visit the company website and go through the careers page, surf through all the opportunities listed and apply to the one which best suits your skill.
Patience is key:
You need to be patient, as we mentioned earlier, things may be a bit slow but they are not as bleak as you are probably assuming. Apply to all the places you feel would work best for your skill set. Then sit back and take a deep breath, worrying is not going to get you the job.
