When it comes to looking for a job you must be clear that no one is going to pick you up and your home to offer you work or ask for your resume. Nor is it enough to know the best pages to find a job, or even to have a perfect resume. Looking for a job is a challenge, even an art, that can help you grow as a person and as a professional. Must be a daily job. Being clear that you like, and that you are good, and what you want, it is from those decisions that you trace your strategy.

TIPS TO GAIN EMPLOYMENT

1) Have a clear and defined plan: You must know that you are good and you want to do, you need a real and achievable goal.

2) Visibility and know how to sell yourself: All your friends, family, acquaintances and on social networks should know that you are looking for a job. Some people are often embarrassed, but it is more dignified to seek employment than to remain without doing anything at the expense of others. To say it to everyone is very good to accelerate the process of getting a job.

3) It is Important to be relatable: Attend talks, events, workshops, etc, where you will meet many people who may at some point be useful (do not forget to contact these people from time to time). It works both formal and informal channels.

Job Interview

1) Going to job interviews presentable, informed and with a good resume is very important.

2) Study for the interview: you need to know as much as possible about the professional sector and about that particular role for which you are applying. Also about the company.

3) Talk about money with tact, but without dodging the subject. They may discard you for asking too much, but also for asking little (they will think you are not qualified). It is crucial to be fully informed about what is being paid in that sector, for that position and professionals with your level of training / experience.

Take Advantage of Social Media

Social networks are a source of information for jobs. You may find out, before many people, that this or that one changes companies or that they do not renew it anymore

Facebook: Use it to give your friends the “poke” if they see an offer that fits with your profile.

Twitter: The best to position yourself as an authorized voice in a certain field of knowledge.

LinkedIn: As your profile owner put what you are, but also what you want to be. Join discussion groups that have to do with your industry and participate in discussions. It always offers professional answers and a well studied background.

And never be discouraged, to look for work you have to work, you have to be in constant search. Good Luck!
