Dream of every applicant… want a job… want to be hired in a victorious company…. But have you asked yourself Why should you be hired? Here are some hacks to get you HIRED!
Now the first question is…
KNOW WHAT DO COMPANIES WANT?
They want people who can adapt and want to be ridiculously successful, who are in it for the long haul. They want an applicant who can add something new to the team. Passion and determination are two of the most important qualities for the success of the company.
Now, what you should do….
BEFORE YOU GET STARTED?
Find out your ideal career and create your talents profile step by step, recognize your skills, rate yourself and most importantly forget about the job title. Show your digital presence (professional social websites). Unsurprisingly, social media has become the go-to tool for today’s recruiters. The majority of candidates have profiles on at least one major networking site, so it makes sense that hiring managers would research potential employees at those locations
LET’s TALK ABOUT CV’ zzzzzz…
Your CV will not get you a job, it’s a social marketing package…
Don’t include a photo of yourself, your pet, or your significant other.
Don’t use unprofessional email addresses.
Don’t use subjective self- describers.
Recruiters are increasingly using mobile devices to review job applications, it’s even more important to make sure your resume looks great on any screen.
BE PREPARED FOR VIDEO INTERVIEWS
“Video is going to give people the opportunity to make themselves stand out. Today’s employers are speaking with potential employees via Skype and reviewing candidate-created video content, seeing this as a time- and cost-effective screening method. So it’s wise to get comfortable in front of the camera.
BE UNIQUE (NOT DISTRACTING)
A bold and daring approach to your job application may catch a hiring manager’s attention, “You” as Job seekers who want to try something a bit different during the hiring process must remember to tie it back to your skills and why they’re qualified for the position.
TRY TO FORM NETWORK WITH POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES ONLINE
Career fairs and in-person networking events are great for making connections with potential employers but don’t underestimate the power of joining in online conversations and communities. Active and passive job seekers are encouraged to connect on social media with companies they might want to work for, especially if the person and the company have a mutual connection.
So these simple DO’s & DON’Ts before going for an interview will help you out to groom your professional skills.
