The first thing you need to do before starting to look actively for a job is to prepare well.
As a serious and responsible employer who wants to attract the best candidates, we want to help you prepare and to give you some advice on how to act and what to pay attention to even before sending a CV to a potential employer.
- Set your goals and priorities
To understand better your business goals, either short-term or long-term ones, try to answer these questions:
- What do I want to do?
- What skills do I have?
- What do I like doing?
- What job characteristics are important to me?
- Prepare your CV/resume
Always bear in mind when writing your CV, that employers may spend very little time on it. We therefore recommend you to pay special attention to the following:
- Adjust your CV to the requirements of the position you are applying for, so there is a better chance for you to be invited to a job interview.
- Update your CV regularly (add completed schools and courses in the meantime). If it is not provided in the CV, it cannot be taken into account.
- Make sure your CV is short, concise and clear. Make your CV look like a “teaser” for motivating employers to invite you for a job interview.
- Be active
It is useful to monitor active advertisements on employment websites and websites of attractive employers, subscribe to the mailing lists of websites of recruitment agencies, follow social networks and take all other preparatory steps to ensure that information on vacancies reaches you in time.
- Develop your personal and professional capacities
When you are looking for a job, do not just send your CV and wait to be invited for an interview. Instead, dedicate your time to personal and professional development – attend informal education courses, seminars, lectures, read expert literature on the internet and similar. Not only will it increase your chance of employment, but you will also develop yourself personally, achieve better results, build your self-esteem, and make better progress in general.
- Search for internship
Working experience is always highly valued by employers. If you are at the very beginning of your career and do not have much working experience, we suggest you look for an internship in a company, get involved in a program of student or youth organizations or start volunteering.
- Tell friends and business contacts you are looking for a job
When you are looking for a job, always inform your friends, family, university colleagues, business contacts etc. Additionally, LinkedIn, employment fairs etc. are great places to expand your business network. Finding recommendations and widening your business network is not the same as finding a job through personal connections.
