                    What Employers Are Really Looking For In Job Seekers


STRATEGIES FOR JOB SEEKERS
They should rub minds with these people regarded as ‘Junior Staff’ in that company they want to
work from the security man to the front desk executive.
If you can successfully pass through the security man by being his friend, you will eventually
meet with the front desk executive who will be willing, after good interaction, to reveal some
secrets about the vacant positions and how you can smuggle in your application. Don’t belittle
anybody.

Be on the alert. Always be on the look out for pieces of information concerning job vacancies on
the internet and allow none to pass you by.

Network with other job seekers. Form clubs and name it whatever name you desire. It will be a
good forum to meet, share ideas and appraise the level of your various job attempts.
Examine yourself. Write down those things you have achieved in your lie and those you haven’t.
Then decide on how you intend to achieve the ones you haven’t and how to improve on the ones
already achieved. You will then be able to target the company you want to work for which will
assist you realize your dreams and further sharpen your potentials.

Have a distinct mindset that you have a lot to offer the company which may eventually hire you
rather than what you intend to gain. With this, you’ll continually hope for the best.

Mistakes Job Seekers Make
Many of them are still on the streets because they are looking for jobs that will pay salaries that
are commensurate with their paper qualifications. Get that small job that you think is offering
you what you termed “little pay”, it may be your may be your route to securing mouth-watering
offers. You never can tell.

I know of a guy in 1986 who read Business Administration and couldn’t hold down a job. I told
him to try out a job in a company as a clerk but he won’t be paid as a graduate. And that while on
the job he should empower himself with some computer programmes. He compiled. In just three
months, the person in charge of Business Administration in the company was seen to be
performing below expectation. The guy came as a good replacement. So that one lost his job, he
got it.


Big paper qualifications without a reasonable Intelligent Quotient (IQ). Even though they have
made first class or second class upper in their disciplines, they haven’t seen the necessity of
acquiring other skills like in computer for example which may be beneficial as they are still
hunting for jobs. There will always be a time to put it into use.
Get your CV or Resume right. There are many job hunters who only parody what others have
scribbled in theirs. Don’t claim the skills you have not acquired or else you’ll be apprehensive or
unduly anxious even before the call for an interview. It’s just natural since you have claimed
what you don’t possess and once you are discovered, no hesitation before you are fired. A job
seeker once sent her CV to me claiming she could work without supervision and can effectively
use CorelDraw. I only told her to use Microsoft Word and she replied me that it’s long she had
used the computer to type. Can you imagine that!

Don’t just search for jobs. Many are of the opinion that all they are looking for are jobs that will
guarantee they take home something at the end of the month or work for some months and resign
to start a business of their own. It may not work out that way, so endeavour to have a mindset to
give your best to the company you desire to work hence you’ll just be looking for opportunities
and not how to nurture your dreams.


What Your CV or Resume Must Look Like

Either a CV or resume is good unless the company specifies. They are both a summary of you
only that the latter is more detailed. State everything from birth.
If you have an eye problem or any other problem include it. You know what, either you hide it or
not, it will be discovered later. So why hide it?

By revealing your health problems, the company will not only appreciate your honesty but also
know how best to take care of you. You may say some companies won’t want to employ you
because you reveal them. Never mind, there are many out there who will encourage your
honesty.

Don’t include it that you were a failure somewhere. If you are called for interview and questions
bordered on it, you can then explain intelligently.



What Employers Want In An Applicant

An applicant that has a very good mindset to deliver. One who genuinely has something to add
and give in return; one with an empowered mind.

One thing you must know is that there is no reason a company will be willing to engage your
services if you don’t have anything to really offer. It is for this obvious reason that you must
have that edge which makes you the person that company must hire.
