Important Tips to start your New Job Hunt

These days searching for a good job is too difficult but there are some tips from career experts for job seekers who are starting a job hunt. All the freshers should have to be very keen and very much strategic in finding their Job Search. There are several tips to format their resumes before sharing to the companies.

Create a Resume:  First revise your resume before you start job hunting, make sure that your resume is as complete and up-to-date as possible.  Your resume is an important distillation of who you are, where you come from, and what you can offer.  Look at a variety of recent, relevant job descriptions. Use a simple font (such as Times New Roman, Arial or Bevan) and avoid bold or italic lettering. Ensure your name and contact information are clearly and prominently displayed.

Appearance:  Make sure your clothes are at least business casual. Everything needs to fit and be clean. So do you. You want to be able to smile and not worry about your teeth, your body odor or anything. Don’t be distracted by your appearance; focus on meeting people when you network and the interview when you get one.

Effective Communication:  Employers tend to value and hire people who are able to express their thoughts efficiently through verbal and written communication. People who land a good job easily are usually those who are adept in speaking and writing.

Technological Ability: Most job openings will require people who are IT or computer literate or know how to operate different machines and office equipment, whether it's a PC or multi-function copier and scanner. This doesn't mean that employers need people who are technology graduates — knowing  the basic principles of using current technology is sufficient.

Strong Interpersonal Skills: Because the working environment consists of various kinds of personalities and people with different backgrounds, it is essential to possess the skill of communicating and working with people from different walks of life.

Expand your Job Search Resources:  Job boards and networks are fantastic - also contact your alumni office, placement office at your college/university, industry associations, professional organizations, read trade journals - all can be great resources for your job search.

Stay Positive:  While there may be times when the job search will leave you feeling frustrated, don't ever give in to negative feelings or let them derail you from your professional goals! The key is to be with someone who is going to reinforce your efforts and give you encouragement and suggestions.
