Unconventional (But Very Effective) Tips For Job Seekers

1. Be vulnerable.

It’s okay to ask people for advice! “Too often we think we have to sell ourselves as this know-it-all hot-shot to get a job. Don’t just sit around waiting for your “dream job” to open

2. Start at the top and move bottom

When you practicing for interviews, don’t just rehearse your answers to questions like, “can you tell me about yourself?” “why do you want this job?” and “what are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?” Practice listening carefully and closely without interrupting.

3. Start at the top and move down.

We learned from Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith) in pursuit of happiness (the biographical film based on Gardner’s life) that you need to start from the top and move down.

4. Build a relationship with the administrative assistant.

“A terribly underutilized resource is an employer’s administrative assistant,” Parnell says. “As the manager’s trusted counterpart, there is often only a slight social barrier between the two. They know the manager’s schedule, interests, responsibilities and preferences.

5. Don’t apply for a job as soon as you find it.

 The worst part about job hunting is the dreaded scrolling of an online job board, applying for job after job, and never hearing back who work there, and reach out to someone at the company before you apply for the job, letting them know you admire what they do and would love their advice.”

6. Don’t focus on finding a job you love now

You’ve probably heard this before—but job candidates don’t take it seriously enough. As it is important for one to learn and gain experience and knowledge and also to have a wide range of expericance on all the grow and also to gain the essential tips and tricks to grow and sustain in a particular organization.

7. Don’t focus on finding a job you love now.

 Don't obsess about how much you'll enjoy a particular job on day one, Newport says. Most entry-level positions are not glamorous. Focus on finding a job you love now and gain the essential tips in particular industry.

8. Become their greatest fan.

Once you find a company you’d love to work for, become their biggest fan.Organizations ideally want employees to love their company and be enthusiastic about their job. Loyal fans are passionate as consumers.
