When you read the text below, please make certain to read the headings and the paragraphs. Sometimes, it’s the little things that can make a big difference in how fast you can find a job.
Of course, there are no guarantees about how fast you will be able to find a job. But there are some things you can do to help speed up the process.
Here Are Some Tips For You:
1. Contact Your Friends
Let everyone you know that you are looking for a job. Send a note by Facebook, if you have to. Employers often give referrals high consideration.
2. Post Your Resume Online
Post your resume on various job search websites.
3. Go Directly to a Company’s Website
In addition, to posting your resume on job sites, go directly to the websites of companies you are interested in. For example, if you want to work for IBM, go directly to IBM.com and find their “Career” page. On their Career page, you may find job opportunities that have not been posted on job sites.
4. Clean up Your Facebook Page
If you have posted anything on your website that is political, controversial, offensive or derogatory in any way, remove it. Don’t take any chances that you could be offending a potential employer. They often take a look at your Facebook page to get an idea of the type of person you are.
5. Practice Interviewing
When you are interviewing, you do not want to “wing it”. This may be your only chance to get the job. You want to be prepared. Practice answering potential interview questions so that you feel confident and prepared.
6. Follow Up
Send an email or thank you letter. A week after you have sent the letter, call the person you interviewed with. Let them know that you are still interested in the job and that you are calling regarding the status of the position.
7. Register with an Employment Agency
They sometimes have jobs that have not been posted online. Also, a lot of companies like to start employees as temporaries to try them out first. Employment agencies are usually who they contract with for that type of need.
8. Consider a Sales Position
Consider a job in sales. Almost every company needs sales people. If you search the sales or telemarketing section of the job sites or classified ads, you will most likely find numerous job openings. If you have a “go getter” and ambitious attitude, some companies will train you.
Some positions pay a base salary and commission. This could create a very nice income for you. Some companies pay commission only.
If the sales position you are considering requires you to obtain a license, there will be a longer ramp up time for you. There could be months before you receive your first check.
If you are considering a retail sales position, you may have flexible hours that allow you to keep your options open for other opportunities.
9. Check Your Attitude
This may be the most important tip I can give you. It is natural to want to be around people who are likeable.
You should present yourself in the most positive way possible. Regardless of how frustrated you may feel, smile and be gracious.
If you come across as someone who is friendly, good with people, willing to learn, and not easily discouraged, some companies may be willing to be flexible with their requirements.
Be friendly to the receptionist and anyone you encounter. Don’t talk too much. Keep your responses as brief as you can.
