Finding a job is far easier these days with the variability of the internet. The primary focus should be geared towards, preparing a resume, cover letter, and critiquing each. Resume critiquing should be completed by someone experienced or a professional service. Next, search for a job that is compatible with the appropriate skill set. When lacking the necessary skills for employment, obtain training to become qualified. Train in an exceedingly career or trade that is expected to grow within the future. Education and training is necessary but be cautious of over qualifying. For an example, do not become a registered nurse to obtain employment as a (CNA) Certified Nurses Assistant.
Assemble a portfolio to point out previous projects (Optional). Utilize local employment agencies, temporary services, and websites. There are a vast majority of job banks like Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, Indeed.com, Jobbankusa.com, etc. Few volunteer programs at hospitals can pay a small wage for services. Local Employment agencies provide programs like (WIA) Work Force Investment Act, (OJT) On-the-job training, and Dislocated worker services.
Writing a resume is easy. The first page should consist of background history. Birth place, marital status, school information and office machine experience (if any). This is where the potential employee can provide information about awards and accomplishments. It is important to include any accomplishment no matter how small.
The second page of the resume is work history. This is the body and most important portion of the resume. This is where an employer will look to find out if the potential candidate is qualified for a job. Be sure to include all jobs, the date hired, the date employment is terminated, job duties and contact information.
The third page is the personal reference page. This page is simple, provide the name, address and phone number of all personal references.
The fourth page is professional references. These are people whom the applicant has been involved with professionally. Just like with the personal references, be sure to include the name, address and phone number of all professional references.
It is important to include just as much information as possible so that a potential employer will know all about the person he or she is considering for a job.
You finally got a call back about the position you applied for, and you were able to snag an interview for your dream job. The first step in nailing the meeting with your future employer is deciding how to dress for the interview. Choosing the proper attire can assure your interviewer that you are serious about the opportunity and also provide you with confidence needed during a stressful moment.
Your hardest wardrobe choice will be the level of dressiness with which to wear. This will vary upon what type of career you are interviewing for. If you are going for a professional, management, or sales job, or will be assisting that type of position, you should wear a dark-colored suit (black, grey, or navy blue). For positions where a suit would come across as imprudent for an interview (example: food service), substitute the suit for a button-down shirt, tie, and dress pants or a skirt (a sweater is another possibility).
It is important to remember that you have already stood out to this company in some way. Whichever style you chose, keep it conservative. White dress shirts and simply-designed ties are the norm. Dress pants or skirts should black, grey, or dark khaki.
By following the above guidelines you will show your interviewer a level of seriousness and professionalism to make it to the next step.
