Although, people complain about unemployment in India; there are ample jobs for candidates with the right combination of degree and skills. These skills include both, soft skills and technical skills.
Here are quick tips to keep in mind while looking for a job or job change in 2017:
Hot Tip #1 Make sure you understand the job description, expectations of the hiring organization, their industry, competition, etc., thoroughly.
Hot Tip #2 Study the management and growth structure of the organization you are interested in.
Hot Tip #3 Make sure your CV is updated and in-sync with the position you are applying for. If the vacancy is asking for someone with 5 years of experience, and you mention that you have 15 years of experience, your candidature will be rejected.
Hot Tip #4 Make sure that you can explain/elaborate what you have written in your CV without looking at it. For example, if you have mentioned that you were a ‘project head,’ you should be able to ‘what was the project about?’
Hot Tip #5 Be sure of the industry or sector you want to work and grow in. Stay updated with the latest developments in the chosen industry.
Hot Tip #6 During the interview, always ask for the ‘scope of growth’ offered by the organization.
Hot Tip #7 Be a multi-tasker, without losing focus of your primary job responsibilities.
Hot Tip #8 Freshers should go for an internship (paid or unpaid) before you start your job hunt. Due to stiff competition in the job market, a large candidate pool of experienced professionals, freshers are not given job offers.
Hot Tip #9 Ask the right questions during the interview process.
