Getting a new job may be tough in this kind of competitive world where huge number of graduates and post graduates are coming out of their college each year. But there is always scope to get the job if you can follow these 5 tips properly. Freshers should remember one thing, “N Pain, No Gain”. So work hard till you reach your goal.
5 Tips for freshers to find out a job in tough market:
1) Skill Set vs Industry:
Every job seekers first step in job hunt should be identifying their skill sets rather than going in the direction of a wave. When global market is in crisis and when there is hell lot of competition around, individuals should think out of the box and concentrate more on your skill sets rather than limiting yourself to a particular industry.
There are lot of Industry sectors apart from IT industry. So try in other industries as well specific to your studies.
2) Wish List (Companies to work for)
Make a list of companies you want to work for and identify their recruitment process or selection process and prepare in that direction for interviews. Most of the job seekers always try to get a job in MNC companies, of course MNC companies provides much better facilities and pay than other companies. But there are many medium and smaller companies out there which are very good at their level and some companies are offering better packages than MNC companies.
So first try the companies in your wish list, if it doesn’t work out then try in each and every company.
3) Try every where not only in Metros
A lot of MNC are recruiting across the country, and not just the metros. Tier II, tier III cities and rural markets have plenty of opportunities and a lot of companies within the F&B and education space have ambitious plans for such areas. One should not hesitate in exploring such opportunities. Suppose if a walk in drive or off campus drive is going on in some tier II city, you should try to attend the interview. Be aware that these days some fraud companies and colleges are conducting fake campus drives just to earn money through entry fees.
4) Be Active on Social Networking Sites and Job Portals
Try to be active on social networking websites and job portals, and meet people if possible. I can see a lot of good Facebook groups and pages are providing information about walk-in drives, off campus recruitment drives across India. And even those pages or groups are sharing much valuable information such as hiring process, pro’s and con’s of the interview and also their interview experiences. So you should be active on social media as well as job portals such as allindiajobs.in 🙂
5) Specific Resume
You should be more specific about your resume rather than just copying others resume. Resume is your first impression to the employer. So highlight your skills and your areas of expertise. Avoid overloading your resume with lots of content. Be genuine while preparing your resume and put the skills that are actually known to you.
We hope these tips are useful to you in finding right job. All the best for your career.
