Finding best jobs
Here we go:
When applying for jobs online, be fussy and apply for jobs which fit your CV exactly. Don’t apply for jobs in quantity because your CV becomes spam.
When you sign up with job sites, never ever check that box which says “Allow recruiters to search my CV”. If you do tick that box your CV becomes a virtual slut, every recruiter can see it and within days it becomes old news! The reason why job websites have that box is because they charge recruiters for searching CVs.
If you can’t find a job that fits your CV exactly, change your CV so it fits the job exactly (NOT word for word). Be smart about it! I know it can time consuming editing every CV for every position you apply for, truth is it’s worth it. What would you rather do, look for jobs online for 4 months or spend a few days editing your CV for every job you apply for? Come across as an expert in a particular field.
Change your CV format once a week. Choose a different CV template or re-write your CV completely. This method works every time. Every recruiter likes to see fresh CVs, changing the way your CV looks has a huge impact! Obviously don’t change your CV every day.
Always remember you are more important than the recruitment consultant! Many feel as if recruitment consultants look down on job seekers, in reality recruitment consultants actually feels the opposite.
Network, network, network. In today’s day and age networking with others has become very popular and there’s a good reason why. Networking is basically making friends that are useful, e.g. If you’re a web developer go to a web design seminar and network with other developers.
Talking about confidence always comes across as confident when on the phone to an employer or recruiter. It doesn’t matter how many years of experience you have on your CV or how many degrees you have, confidence makes up 70% of a yes or no answer.
Use niche job sites, maybe they are not popular as the bigger ones but they are more resourceful. Finding a niche job site is easy, go to Google and type in “your role” job site.
Last and most importantly, be creative, enthusiastic and positive when searching for a job. Trust me it helps and goes a long way!
