5 Tips for Job Hunters

May 06, 2019

Searching for a new job can be a daunting task. It’s important to stay motivated, and to use every tip and trick that you can think of.

Here are five tips to help you on your job hunt:

Clean Up Your Social Media Accounts

Be careful what you post on your social media accounts, as employers will check them. You should delete anything you would not want a potential employer to see.

Connect With a Friend

Arrange to speak on a weekly basis with a friend who is also looking for a job. Chat about your accomplishments, frustrations and future plans. This will help you feel less alone and more motivated in your job search.

Read the Job Advert Carefully

Follow the instructions of a job advert exactly. If you fail to submit all of its requirements, you may not be considered for the job.

Make a Great First Impression

When meeting potential employers, remember that a first impression is made in less than 30 seconds. Focus on exuding confidence, using open body language, and being friendly and professional.

Be Punctual

One of the biggest mistakes that a job-seeker can make is arriving late. That’s why you should aim to arrive 10 minutes early to a job interview.

If you are not sure how long it will take you to get there, test out the route days before your interview, so that you arrive to the interview on time.
