What to Remember when Job Hunting
January 19, 2011 | In Career, Musings |
Job hunting can be difficult or easy depending on how you approach it. If you don’t have a definite agenda, it might be hard to begin your search. Strategic planning is important; you need to have several back-up plans in case plan A doesn’t work out for you.
When looking for a job, take advantage of all possible job-hunting avenues especially the Web-based ones. It’s easy to find jobs via the Internet because you are given various options. You can find a job that’s industry-specific or one that is location-specific. However, you need to keep in mind that even if you’re applying for a job online, you still have to observe proper decorum.
You still need to have a professional looking resume and cover letter and you still need to be punctual in case your potential boss requests for an online interview. You also have to provide your contact information so an employer can reach you for an interview. Most important of all, you need to be patient. Don’t expect quick results and don’t get discouraged should the job not fall on your lap.
