Focus on the Job Qualifications:
A common reason why many cannot even land an interview for a job opening is because they are barking up the wrong tree. Often times, many send resumes just to any company without aiming for a particular position. They write a generic resume with generic cover letters and randomly leave them to the receptionist. Send applications to the positions that resemble previous jobs. Being a fresh grad, look for the positions that suit the degree attained.
Use Online Job Postings:
While it is good to visit one company after another to send resumes personally, more job openings can be found online. Create a separate and professional email for signing up to online job posting sites. Allow for daily newsletters to be sent to this email. Make sure that the email is formal with a name on it like john.doe @ email.com. Avoid imaginative and provocative chatting usernames like sexy143 @ email.com.
When setting up a profile, make sure that all of the text boxes are properly accomplished. Do not forget to upload a photo. If sending a resumes in email, make sure to use standard fonts like Times New Roman or Arial. These two are standard fonts that are readable in all computer programs. When sending a file with a fancy font, they may show up differently in other computers, like unreadable little squares instead of letters. Also, avoid using other designs like colors, lines or images.
Build a Network of Professionals who can offer Recommendations:
Make sure that to have a network of professional who can call for job recommendations. If this is not an option, volunteering groups, organizations or special classes where there can be an introduction. These professionals would become your BUSINESS CONTACTS. Make sure to exchange numbers and let them know of the job search.
Clean Up Online Presence:
Sometimes we post seemingly innocent pictures or messages on our social networking profiles or blogs ignoring that these are publicly available online. Consider that an employer would be making a few background checks so avoid posting pictures under the most compromising situations. Also avoid posting comments and blog posts that have provocative messages. Treat an online profile as a resume.
Do not lose hope in finding a job. Everybody goes through this kind of stage in life so enjoy and learn. Just follow these job search tips and soon start a good career.
