6 Unwritten Rules on Job Searching

March 28, 2015

Searching for a job can be an amazing experience, and something that you will truly enjoy most of the time. However, there are numerous things that you need to take into account when you search for a job, that go way beyond polishing your resume and creating a relevant cover letter.

Be organized

This is crucial when you look for a job, because you need to know exactly where you applied for a job, the skills necessary there, and you also need to keep in touch with all the persons you met. This way you can create new contacts, and at the same time you can track the interview date, application date and so on. As you can see, there’s a lot of data to be processed here, and you can easily manage everything in a better fashion if you are better organized, something you will truly enjoy at all times.

Ask for advice

We aren’t created to know everything, so there will definitely be situations in which you might need to ask for help. Others will help you, of course, but be sure to choose your questions wisely and pay complete attention to maintain your image and reputation. Don’t ask for too many things at once, so choose your questions wisely as this is crucial.

Apply only for the jobs you want

Sometimes, job hunting might make you desperate and you will try to find multiple jobs, some of which you might not want. A good idea here is to make sure that you apply only for the jobs you do like and want, as this is a much better way to get the job you want. Be honest with yourself and your abilities, and select only job that suits your needs and portfolio, as this is a much better way to get the results you seek faster.

Be honest

Honesty is essential when you look for a job, because this is the only way to succeed. Let’s face it, everyone tells the best about themselves when they have an interview, so you need to be honest and showcase your weaknesses alongside your strength, because most employers appreciate your honesty and because of that you are bound to get some very impressive results in the end.

Observe

Another good idea is to constantly observe how you are treated and how is the workplace, as this will show you if you truly fit there or not. Remember though that observation is key so don’t be too obvious when observing the surrounding areas!

Learn

During the job searching process, you need to continually try and learn more, while at the same time find out more about the industry you want to work in. Learning is essential because you always want to break the boundaries and obtain higher quality results. This way you can also get a better job as well, so it’s a win-win situation.

You will need to follow these rules to the letter if you want to succeed, but rest assured that the results will be worth it. So don’t hesitate and be honest, better organized and ask for help when needed, as you are bound to get impressive jobs this way!
