Job hunters are mostly searching in the internet nowadays. Employers should innovate their employment services with the use of website job post.
When you are having a problem completing a task, please try to research the answer before asking your employer. You may be given the task for several reasons. One reason may be that the employer is testing you to see how well you can do it on your own. Another reason may be that the employer does not know how to do it so they have asked you to do it for them.
Is it difficult for you to come up with a concise, one-page CV? It might be high time to review your current CV and edit it to get rid of unnecessary information.
1. Choose an appropriate structure for your resume.
Choosing the Right Type of CV, one that is based on your experience and skills can reduce its size. “If you have repeatedly occupied the same position or repeatedly exercised the same function, it is better to structure your resume and organize the data around your skills to avoid repetition,” advises Michelle Espiritu, recruitment officer from Sysgen Philippines.
Instead of first listing and detailing every job position or function you have had, you begin by describing your skills. Under each of these skills, you list the relevant position or function you have had without the necessity of repeatedly describing your skills and responsibilities.
2. Personalize the content.
You save space by customizing your CV to suit the desired position. All the information that are not needed for a specific position can be shortened and even eliminated. Your on-the-job training that has nothing to do with your profession today can be deleted, especially if you have had more than five years’ experience.
3. It is easier to read through lists.
Keep in mind that recruiters scan your CV quickly at first reading. The simpler, the better. For example, instead of long complicated sentences, lists are recommended. Enumerations have the merit of clarity and the main ideas can be made to instantly stand out.
4. A new experience = delete earlier information
You should remove information every time you update your CV, Are you adding a new work experience? Trim down the description of your past experiences that might be of less interest now. Do you have a twenty-year work experience? It is unnecessary to include your volunteer work in college.
Also, do not itemize all your tasks: choose the ones that accurately represent your career growth.
5. Customize the training section to complement your profile.
After some years of experience, some details are unnecessary. When a recruiter receives a resume with a time-frame of forty years, he is not interested to know where you did your on-the-job training when you were 18!
However, if you have recently completed professional training to develop yourself in your field, be sure to include it in your CV.
6. Learn to sort through your interests.
The section about your hobbies should not be too detailed. Add specific interests that are related to the position you are applying for. It’s useless to include cross-stitching if you are applying for a web developer post. Sports which are a regular and sustained activity may indicate values ??and skills useful in business. Thus, they are relevant. However, to write that you play tennis once a year is wasting space and wasting the recruiter’s time.
When your soon to be employer open a door for you, do not waste the chance they gave you. Always give your confirmation if you are attending or won't be able to. This is very important special if the employer give a specific time and date. This means if you missed your sched you need wait till the last scheduled applicant is finished. Your lucky if the employer will still give you a chance for a re-sched, depends on the reason, most of the companies do not give second chances.
DON’T be late for an interview. If you are always early, you won’t be late. Punctuality is a give-away of your character, of your personality... its the first step.
If you are not familiar with the area, ask whoever wrote you. send your question via email, text or call if you have to. you may do these when you confirm your attendance.
Arrive a few minutes early so that there is ample time to find parking, to find the exact location and be present at the office of the interviewer without appearing rushed.
If you confirm and do not appear on the said date and time. You may not ne given a chance again, almost all companies will blacklist the applicants that didn't arrived, because again this will show your personality. So, if can't come for whatever reason, better that you inform the employer that you can no longer show. This only shows how professional you are and also this shows how you handle a situation. Confirming and not showing is NOT a good idea.
Most job positions are applied for by dozens of applicants with almost the same credentials. That means that you must provide an edge, and separate yourself from the crowd. The best ways to do this are to make a good appearance, be polite, be on time, and be thorough with your application. Later, your job and education experience will speak for you, but these simple rules will help you forever!
And... Always have the original and a copy of all the necessary documents – certificates, references, identification – to present at the interview. Dress appropriately for the role and organization that the interview is with... Remember that first impressions count – smile warmly and communicate clearly.
Always get a contact name. Cover letters addressed "To Whom It May Concern" will probably end up in the trash
Be careful with this one. Most interview guides will tell you to answer it with a positive trait disguised as a weakness. For example, "I tend to expect others to work as hard as I do," or "I'm a bit of a perfectionist." Interviewers have heard these "canned" answers over and over again. To stand out, be more original and state a true weakness, but then emphasize what you've done to overcome it. For example: "I've had trouble delegating duties to others because I felt I could do things better myself. This has sometimes backfired because I'd end up with more than I could handle and the quality of my work would suffer. But I've taken courses in time management and learned effective delegation techniques, and I feel I've overcome this weakness."
IMPORTANT: Be sure the weakness you talk about is NOT a key element of the position!

When you do use verbs to describe your background, choose powerful ones. Try "achieved," "completed," "managed," "resolved," and "increased." Words like "contributed" or "supported" are less impressive. Keep in mind that your resume is the place to list accomplishments, not just job duties or responsibilities.
Your time has come for a face-to-face job interview after all your hard work from sending those resume. But this is not the time to relax and think about how will you are going to spend your new salary. There is more work to do. The better prepared you are the better your chances are of getting your new job.
Always bear in mind that in the business world there are many highly qualified candidates that also want the same job you are applying for. It is really important to make yourself stand out as a better individual over the others. It is now the time to practice exactly how you will market yourself to a potential employer during that vital and crucial first meeting.
Here are ten “always” you need to do in order to have an edge in your next interview leading to your next job.
Always do your homework. Do research on the company to be interviewed on so that you can show you have some knowledge of who they are and what they do during the interview. This will improve your relationship with the interviewer and will aid you to formulate intelligent questions to ask him or her.
Always know where you are going. Have an idea of where the interview area is. Make sure to know where the office is and how to get there. Know how long the trip will take. If possible, have the name and the phone number of your interviewer. Save yourself some time and unnecessary stress by knowing these things before going to the interview.
Always look good. Always look professional. Your clothing should be clean, neat and pressed. It is difficult to know the environment and culture of the office or working area. Though everyone is wearing jeans when you arrive, it is better to be in a suit. It will leave an impression of professionalism. But do not be afraid to put some personality and attitude in your look. Also check the details and have a clean haircut and manicured nails.
Always practice yourself. Before your interview prepare some witty answers to frequently asked questions by the interviewer like, “What are your strengths and weaknesses?”” Why do you want to work here?” and the popular “Tell me about yourself.” You can conduct a mock interview with a friend or a relative as a practice for the interview.
Always have references. Have personal references available for your interview. Find at least three key people such as your former supervisor, some colleagues, or your instructor, whom are willing to serve as your professional references. Be sure that they allow you to use their name as a reference and that they will speak highly of you if contacted by the employer.
Always be an early bird. Be sure you arrive at least 15 minutes before the interview time so you will have the time to visit the restroom and groom yourself. Make sure to tell someone that you have arrived and that you have an appointment for an interview.
Always be document-ready. Bring any necessary documentation you may need during the interview process. Make a checklist of all the necessary documents that you may need for the interview and review it before leaving for the appointment. These my include a copy of your resumé, licenses, certificates, diplomas, and a portfolio of your previous work, if any. If you are a fresh graduate you should bring your college transcript of records.
Always be proud of yourself. During the interview you should sell yourself in a positive way. It is your chance to shine but it is not the time to be humble. Develop a 25-second sales pitch. In business this is called an “elevator speech”. It is a convincing overview of why you should be hired for the position. It includes your strengths, your abilities, and what sets your uniqueness that is an edge from other applicants.
Always be open for questions. If you really want the job don’t neglect to ask questions. Ask how the responsibilities of the wanted position relate to the company’s goals and plans. Interviewers are impressed by candidates who show that they are well-informed about the organization.
Always follow up. Don’t forget to send a letter thanking the interviewer for the time he or she spent, as well as restating your interest and commitment for the position. Call politely if they will be making a final decision and still have not contacted you in a week or so.
Every interview is a valuable learning experience. Even if you don’t get the position there will be another round of interview for the next job. When that time comes you will be much better prepared and more at ease with the whole process. Thus, every interview should help boost your self confidence and improve the chances of getting a better job. Happy Job Hunting.
