Tips: Getting a Job

The surest way to obtaining employment is to stop complaining about no work, get off the couch and go knock on doors with resume in hand. If you do that all day, every day, you will then be choosing which job you are willing to take. This tactic is independent of any economic times. They don’t call them go-getters for nothing. Anything less than that and you’re hoping someone feels sorry for you.

Draft your CV aimed for a specific job offering: Remove items which are less specific to the talents the job calls for.

Realize that you may have to work your way up. For example, if you want to become an clothing buyer, work for a company that manufactures or sells such goods.

Remember you are doing some HR workers a favour when you present yourself and they do not have to go out and find workers like you.

Treat your search as a full time exercise: the job of getting a job. You are employed by yourself as a sales person/marketing person selling the product you.

Be willing to spend some time learning about the job and the people that work at the company you are applying at. Maybe they like sandwiches, and just maybe you could start making that for them on a daily basis. 1 job created… your own!

Another option is to be self-employed or an entrepreneur, in which case your task is not so much to find and get a job, but to create a job. Most people who work for themselves, however, often started off with a “day job” that paid the bills until their preferred income source could take over.
