One more important GG Online Class conducted by GrabGuidance for Job Seekers. In this webinar, the expert has discussed many common mistakes that we do as a job seeker in detail. For the job seekers, the expert has shared a few things that need to be kept in mind while searching for a job. Below are key areas which you need to focus on –
- Don’t be a desperate job seeker
Before sharing your resume to anybody try to analyze your capabilities first. Don’t be a beggar for a job.
- Never give up
Never give up on any situation. Don’t feel that a particular field/profile is not meeting your needs. After analyzing your capabilities & KRA’s, you have to figure out which industry, profile, sector, company etc. is good for you.
- Don’t give too much information in resume & cover letter
Stop giving too much information in your resume & cover letter. Only share the relevant information which is needed by the prospective employers.
- Stop applying to all job if qualification & experience don’t match
Stop applying everywhere. Apply only when your criterias and eligibility conditions match with the vacant profile.
- Avoid blabbering in interview
It is a very common mistake that 90% of job seekers make. Stop blabbering if you don’t know the answer. Be upfront and say that I don’t know the answer. Honesty is the best policy.
- Avoid walking in casuals
In an interview be present in formals only. Don’t show off with casuals or heavy makeup.
- Zero networking
You should start building your profile on linkedIn and talk to a recruiter or stranger or an alumni which helps you to grow. It will boost your confidence. Your network will never grow if you stop your personal branding.
- Don’t forget to Follow up
Sometimes, we forget to follow up from a recruiter. We need to know how we should start taking follow-up.
- Never leave the company on a bad note
It is not suggested to leave your current company on a bad note. Else, you would be struggling for an experience letter from your previous employer and would be a hindrance for your next job.
- Avoid wrong naming convention
Don’t mention your resume like ABC-CV, My resume ABC, My updated resume ABC. The correct way to send your resume is your first name_your last name_profile.
- Avoid sending resume without information
Always, share your resume with the proper subject line, document and details about the profile you have applied for.
- Don’t send resume through chat box
Don’t send your resume on whatsapp/messenger/linkedIn message box.
These are the common mistakes that we make as a job seeker. The expert has shared the tips for what not to do while searching for a job and how to do best while sending your resume to the recruiter for applying to the job.
