The session ended and you are done with your graduation. Now you are looking for a job and thinking about taking next steps on the life ladder. Here we present some of the points you should consider while applying for the job.
A Skillfull CV
Don’t lie in your CV. Intermediate skills are not Advanced overnight. Make sure you know what you have written and all the articles with “How to create my resume” says the same.
A Linkedin account with same details as of your CV is an instant tip for a recruiter. Make sure you don’t make them keep searching about you if they look for you
Not only that, if you are messaging someone,
- Don’t forward a copied message
- Don’t be on point of job looking you are desperate
- Ask them politely if they have a job available
- Follow them up once or twice and not more than that.
