If you have completed what I gave you yesterday, you now know what you want to do. The next step is to find who’s hiring for that type of position. Now, I want to warn you that many job requests get written to hire a specific person the company wants to hire for that job.
To get past that, you have to apply for many jobs. Also, each job posting will attract on average 250 job applications. To beat the odds, you want to read the company’s website and write your resume and correspondence using the company language. If they call customers ‘clients’, you do the same. If they call their employees ‘the team’, you ask to be part of the team. The more you work this, the easier it gets.
Even if you pay somebody to do your resume, you may end up with only a generic form. Take your time to do your work. Employers do notice and pay attention when you put the extra effort into it. Taking the extra step rarely goes unnoticed.
Make sure friends, family, and everyone you know understands that you are looking for a job. Anything they do to help you is greatly appreciated. You want to be on everyone’s good side and every set of eyes counts.
Earning a job is not an easy gimmie. Many consider getting employed as the most challenging thing to do.
Tomorrow – phone interviews.
