De-Stress When You Job Hunt
It is very important to be calm and stay patient while job hunting because it is never an easy thing to do. Sometimes, even if you do everything right, it might still take time to for you to get back calls from recruiters. Relax! Do Not make things more complicated, panicking and losing hope will not help at this point of time. Keep trying and be active on social media sites that help in acquiring jobs like Linked In. In today’s economy there are almost 10 applications for one job post which gives you a one in ten chance for a particular job. Sometimes it happens that you might get the job but not the desired post. At the end of the day, just compose yourself because one in ten, still means there is quite a high possibility that you might get what you want. It could have been much worse. Retrace your steps and figure out if you made any mistakes in your resume or portfolio or said something wrong in your interview. Correct these mistakes and don’t repeat them. Patience goes a long way.
Check the resume properly to find out the mistakes. Check for grammatical or descriptive errors. Different companies have different methods of approaching candidates and the most important thing is to confirm whether you have addressed the mails or letter to right people in the company. If it does not reach their proper mail Id’s, waiting for a call is worthless. Check your mail and crosscheck whether your CV is suitable for the job post you have applied for. Some companies take informal interviews over the phone. It is very important that you give them the correct contact number and that you make sure you are easy to reach. It is also important that you follow up when they have asked you to.
Love the job you do, do the job you love. All of us have a dream job that we desire to work for at some point of our career. Having goals is good because that sets the direction for your next step. When you work towards your goals, you can take different turns on the way but make sure you are moving forward.
