As we all know, there is a process to getting a job. This sometimes may include an interview, passing qualification tests, and more. Here we have prepared a list of eight of the best tips to help you get the job(s) you want!
1. Research the Company
Knowing as much as you can about the company you are applying to is essential.
This extra information can be exactly what gets you the job! Most companies ask either via application or interview, “why do you want to work for us?” Being knowledgeable about the company will help you answer questions like this with ease. When the interviewer sees that you are informed about the company, it will show your determination to get the job and that you always make the best effort!
2. Resume Check
Most jobs require a resume, a cover letter and/or an application to be filled out when applying for a job. Since you are in search for a job, most likely you have already created your resume and possibly a cover letter.
If you have already done so, then be sure to go over both and make sure that the information is up-to-date. Go over the wording and format of both to see if there is any room for enhancement. If you do not have a resume or if you will like to change the look of your resume, feel free to look at our Resume Templates page. We have multiple, free resume templates available.
Be ready to fill out paperwork and submit documents required to get the job. Paperwork and documents required vary by company but general requirements usually include tax forms, background check consent forms, an application submission and more.
Some jobs require the applicant to pass qualification tests in order to determine if the applicant is a true fit for the position.
If this is the case for you, check to see if there are study materials offered to use to prepare for the test. If there are no study materials offered, look into what kind of testing questions there may be or what the general topic is. If you can find out this information, google search practice material related to the topic. If there is an opportunity to be extra prepared, take it!
5. Be Confident!
Confidence is truly contagious. It is important to be confident during the job application process for a number of reasons.
For one, it is best to keep your thoughts positive since we become what we think.
Secondly, usually, there is an interview required to get a job. For work-at-home jobs, most of the time the interview is over-the-phone. Even if it is a phone interview, it is still important to be confident and maintain a positive attitude because the interviewer can still feel the energy your put off even if it is on the phone.
Now, what does it take for a person to be confident? The answers vary depending on who you ask. If a person is not authentically confident, they have the option to act and play the part of a confident person to get by. Of course, it is best to have genuine confidence, but what does that take? Knowledge of self that leads to self-love.
If you have gotten so far into the process of getting a job that you have the chance for an interview, great job!!!
Now, what is best to do at this time, is to practice interview questions for the position. Do a google search of the job title requesting sample interview questions. For example, “inventory specialist interview questions” or “accountant sample interview questions.” You can write down or copy and paste the questions into a word editor, then print it off.
Figure out what your answers will be to the questions and practice your answers over and over. This will help to boost your confidence for the interview and ultimately help you get the job!
7. Be Comfortable
Whether you are doing an interview on the phone or in person, be sure to be comfortable! Wear the best looking, most comfortable outfit you can find. If you feel good, it will reflect in your interview. The same goes if you are not feeling great in those too little high heels or an extra tight-around-the-neck tie. Look great but do not do it at the expense of your comfort!
8. Don’t Be Hard on Yourself
If destiny has different plans and you do not get the job, don’t fret! Keep it moving to the next adventure. Know that there is the perfect opportunity out there that is best for you on your path. What is your passion? Chase after what you love and everything will fall into place. If you love yourself and others, you will get it back. If you are hard on yourself and others, things will be hard.
