How to Get Employed Quickly

February 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 182

In various countries, the economic downturn is still going on. In that situation, it becomes very difficult to get your desired job. But for your information, there are some other factors which you can handle to increase your chances to get employed.

First and the most important factor which most of the candidates ignore is that they do not update their curriculum vitae on a regular basis. I have seen various people's CV that was made around 1 year ago and they even do not think of updating it. As we know we learn things by passage of time, if you learn any new thing that could be added to your Curriculum Vitae, add it immediately. Why immediately? because you will not remember it if you update your CV after a year, definitely you will lots of thing to write which could constitute a main factor in getting the desired job.

Second important thing is that you must customize your resume according to the job instead of delivering the same resume for different kind of jobs. For example, if an organization requires expertise in the field of taxation, then you first mentioned your taxation experience on the top of the list with detailed description in Experience part of your resume. Then put rest of the experience below the taxation experience.

Third important thing is that you should support your resume with a cover letter. It should be well written and it should also be customized according to the job requirement. Remember, you are going to sell yourself and how could you benefit the company you are applying for the job should reflect in your cover letter. Give proper references in your resume, but it is good to write "references available upon request".

The fourth important thing you need to work on is when you get a call from the employer, you should get as much information about the company as you can. This will help you to give better answers during interview. Also practice as much as you can for commonly asked questions in front of a mirror. As you know, practice makes things better. Same rule follows here!

The final important thing relates to interview, yes when the employer selects your resume for short listing and you are invited for physical meeting with either one or group of interviewers. Here, you should demonstrate confidence and agility in your speaking. Dull voice could destroy your personality and your communication skills because in most of the jobs, employers requires the candidate to have good speaking power. You must have some knowledge about the organization. During the interview, you would be questioned If you follow these important things in mind while applying for vacancies, hopefully you will be able to get your desired job quickly.
