Important Information for Job Seekers
In this hard time for a job seeker, you have to follow some new observations before you go through. The reason is that it will give you a smooth transition to getting a job secure and worry-free. In recent time, finding a job is extremely difficult for every job hunter. The process starts from the very beginning through searching for a job on the internet until you get the job. Here it is my some observations as follows:
Before applying for a job application, search thoroughly informed about the company which you are looking for. In most of the cases, we overlook the company’s authentic proof. But if you do, then you will find it easy to know more about the company when you are on the interview table. First, when you enter into the company website, go straight to the About section where you should get the owner and other teams members bios with mugshot which will inspire you to get into the company with a lot of enthusiasm as well. Even look out the clear locational information at Contact Us section which will give you some clues about its location. If you see that there is only contact form and no details about its location details, then you should think that they like to hide its geographical location due to some other reasons.
You should keep in your mind that more information details on the company website, more the company is transparent and less suspicious. Another point you have to check on the company’s website is its Portfolio section. It is another trick you will have to explore fully. Because you will get the overall idea about the company credibility in the business community. If you see that suppose a company X is established in 2015 and its clients base around 25 till now, then you should think that the company is not well for the job creation as well as its performance also. Again if you find that a company Y is established in 2018 and its clients base is more than 100, then you should think that the company Y is working well in terms of the job creation and its performance also. Therefore, you have to use your intuition to confirm whether you will apply to the company Y or company X. If you find that the company which you are applying for a job has not any website yet, then you should stay away from it. The reason is that the company is not operating yet or preparing to operate for it. Therefore, wait for some time and watch it as well. It is a wise decision if you do a background check the company where you are going to apply for a job. It is crucial for your job prospect. The reason is that now, some company hire people for taking undue advantages due to the unemployment reason. Therefore, you should keep your eyes on this matter.
It is a crucial element for a job seeker. But in recent time, its importance has been changed into a new direction. The reason is that the economic situation is now dwindling and survival becoming very difficult. Therefore, in this situation, you have to negotiate your salary with the employer in an intuitive manner. Moreover, you will find that right now, you will need the salary package for survival and thereafter when the economy is back in normal, then you will be able to go for the killing more. Even, it is observed that salary could vary from one location to another location. The reason is that due to the living standard of the particular location has a huge impact on salary determination. Suppose you work in a megacity and your salary is Rs. 35000 or $471 per month, then you go to the semi-urban or rural area for work, then your salary will be around Rs.25000 or $336 per month due to the difference about the living standard cost. You may not accept it as it is quite understandable as well. But if you think deeply, then you will find that some sacrifice will give you a chance to grab your job at this time also. Even the WFH concept will allow accepting it in the new normal as well.
In your resume, you should mention your skill with the present and past performance report. More elaborately speaking is that you could rate your present company and the past company with your rating. It will clear the doubts about your association with the company in a truly transparent manner. Both the employer and HR will understand how much you were involved with the past company and the present company. It will create a new equation for trust and confidence also. Never forget to mention your latest online course certificate as it will be future determinant for getting a job whether it is accredited or not. For developing your resume, you could find some free programs at Producthunt where you will be able to make some professional looking resumes also. Always keep in your mind that your learning and knowledge never measure where you acquired it. Keep your resume short and precise according to your skill and performance. Always keep yourself on the upskilling mode as it will help you a better chance of getting a job. Be honest to yourself always.
Nowadays the interviews are taking place through video conferencing software like Zoom in the new normal. Sometimes you may feel awkward when you face your webcam. Indeed, it is a new experience to appear on the front of your future employer. Always try to keep yourself simple with a formal dress code. Because you are giving your interview from your home as well. Keep your internet connection updated for smooth transmission. Be relax at least one hour before your interview schedule. If you are not yet upskilling yourself, then always tell the HR that you are not updated enough to fulfil a certain job criterion. It will earn you respect and mark of honesty from the employer as well. During the interview session never hide any weakness regarding the job criterion as it will help you to get the job with the future.
Wishing you a happy job searching!
