However, this guide can show you how to get a job easily and quickly. Aside from avoiding common rookie mistakes, you will also learn important shortcuts, tips, and tricks that will provide you a competitive advantage over other applicants.

How to get a job explained

Tip #1: Use a new, separate, and professional-looking email address for job applications.

Learning how to get a job is basically a process of cultivating and refining your professional image. More often than not, today’s job application process starts online. Most prospective employers base their first impressions of an applicant on their email address.

As such, you should definitely not use any email address that includes unprofessional terms in it (e.g. [email protected]). Avoid use of numbers if possible, too. Keep it short and simple and stick to your name as much as possible (e.g. [email protected]).

A separate email for your job applications is also necessary as this would help keep you updated about the latest replies to your applications. It’s easy to miss an all-important mail about the job you’ve applied to when your Inbox is constantly flooded by personal messages and spam.

Revisions for your resume and cover letter should be done based on three things.

Firstly, always check your resume and cover letter for any typographical, grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors. Look out for formatting errors as well.

Secondly, immediately update your resume and cover letter whenever there is any change about your personal contact information or qualifications.

Thirdly, base your revisions on the requirements of the company you are applying to. Personalize the objective of your resume as well as your cover letter to meet the specifications of the company. Avoid passing something too generic as most employers can usually sense and are offended by such applications. If you feel you need help with your resume click here.

Tip #3: Dress appropriately.

It may seem like common sense to dress appropriately for a job interview, but you’d be surprised at how so many people still get things wrong. The operative word here is ‘appropriate’. You need to do a little research and find out what the standard dress code is not just for the industry you wish to work in but the specific company you are applying to as well.

Google, for instance, is famous for having a very laid back atmosphere in its offices. Attending an interview with the search engine giant’s HR department dressed to the nines would be a big no-no then.

Thirdly, dress appropriately in the sense that your clothes would bring out the best of you. Even if you do not consider yourself the fashion-conscious short, it never hurts to dress yourself in outfits that are meant to flatter your height, build, and colouring.

Tip #4: Get your name out there.

If there is a job that you would really like to apply to, take the risk and email your resume. What’s important is that you have your name out there and with that the hope that they might at least consider interviewing you.

You should also take advantage of various web tools like RSS feeds and other subscription services so that you will be updated immediately about the latest offerings in job search sites.

Thirdly, take the initiative to post your resume online. Sometimes, companies prefer to seek applicants themselves rather than wait for the right people to come to them.

Tip #5: Be prepared to talk about yourself – cheerfully, honestly, and concisely.

Whether you are being interviewed online, on the phone, in person or in any other way, there will come a time when you will have to talk about yourself. It is very important that you are able to highlight your qualifications, skills, and any other “good points” related to work that you have without sounding like you are bragging.

Practice talking about yourself in front of the mirror if it helps. Draft a speech then read it out loud. Allow yourself to be familiar with hearing such words come out of your mouth. Say it again and again until your tongue no longer trips itself over the words.

Make sure that you do not get carried away with too much talking, though. Interviewers rarely have a lot of time to spare for applicants so they’re likely to cut you off when you start giving them too much information.
