Dear Reader, You would have been waiting for campus or off campus announcements by staring at your mailboxes, looking at your college posters, waiting to hear from your friends or waiting to see a job fair announcement in newspapers etc. Actually, an effective job search requires much more commitment and good techniques that would definitely save your precious time. In this article, let us discuss few tips that can be really useful to make your job search a real effective one.
Tip 1 : Don't Wait For Information, Instead Go Searching Everywhere
Waiting is the first hurdle for you job find. Waiting works, but as it literally implies, it usually takes much longer than expected. Reading any one particular newspaper for opportunities or waiting by registering on any one job portal is not going to do the trick. Instead, put your real effort in searching for information by reading every newspaper you can, observing every web resource as you can etc.
Tip 2 : Verify Information Before Applying
Whenever you get a call from some HR of some company you might not heard off, don't immediately deny an offer. Instead talk politely asking for sufficient information to support the credibility of the company. You should definitely check if that company has a quality website that is constantly updated. For example if you see a company's website that has news items dating back to 2008 but reading "Latest News", the chances are that the company is a fake one. This is a simple technique to find if the information is credible. Few other ways to verify the credibility is to visit the company in person or asking some friend in that locality to visit the company on your behalf. Also you can verify by checking if there are any online consumer complaints (by using google, search using the pattern - <company name> complaints by replacing <company name> with the actual name of the company ).
Tip 3 : Don't Apply For A Company Which Demands Money From You
Over the years, several companies have mushroomed which are demanding money from the job seekers instead of actually paying a salary at the start. They would try to convince you with several attractive offers like making your job "permanent" in a year's time with good salary package. But these are the ones which you should definitely stay away from.
Tip 4 : Register on As Many As Quality Portals And Check Mails Regularly
Every company has its own way of recruiting people. Some may post offers in newspapers, some may post in few websites or one website that they prefer etc. Obviously not every company can afford a nationwide announcement like that of TCS or Infosys. For example, if there is a mid sized company somewhere in the outskirts of Mumbai or Hyderabad, that company may choose to post job in any one of the portals they feel good. Hence, you should look out for quality portals and upload resumes with accurate details to each of them. Also, you should check your mails regularly for job updates. Also, you should always take care to keep the resumes in every job portal up to date.
