Clarify your Priorities

List the priorities you expect from your future employer. This list should include salary, job description, career opportunities, corporate culture, etc. Understanding your priorities will help you decide between multiple job offers.

Make a plan!

We now arrive at the most important step of the job search: creating a plan. Create a job search calendar and record contacted companies, notes from individual interviews, and basic information throughout your search. Use this calendar to create a plan to prioritize aspects of your job search.

Another tip: Diversify the means through which you search for work opportunities by using multiple job portals and job search sites like LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and more.

Create a "perfect" resume

You should view your resume as a means of creating a first impression. You should never underestimate the impact of your resume. Companies receive countless CVsevery day without a photo, titles, or other important elements of a resume. When creating a resume, focus on the following steps:

  • Image - Use an image that portrays you in a professional manner–not a photo of you clubbing with your friends!
  • Contact information - The upper part of the CV includes basic information such as name, surname, address, e-mail address, and telephone number. The date of birth or address of residence certainly does not belong in the CV.
  • Graphics - There are many online tools you can use to create a resume, but you must carefully consider which tool or template you eventually choose. It is especially important to make the overall layout legible, to use different fonts and font sizes to provide a visual structure, etc.
  • Chronological arrangement- Always arrange the order of job positions (or education) from your most recent to your oldest.
  • Logical division- Do not jump from topic to topic, keep your structure uniform throughout your resume.

How to look for work on job portals?

Job portals help both active and passive candidates. They are used by employers who are looking for candidates and actively contacting them. Accessing these job portals and creating a portfolio should be a priority. Information in these portals should always match your resume. Subsequent communication is conducted through the portal or through the career sites of a particular company.

In addition, some job portals provide various courses that are credited to your profile upon completion.

Start LinkedIn

As you all know, LinkedIn is a professional social network used to share information about professional life. When creating a profile, pay attention to:

  • Having a suitable profile photo
  • Including clear and concise information about your professional achievements
  • Utilizing Keywords
  • Filling in all information points
  • Formatting image material.

Another mandatory field in your profile is the LinkedIn motto. The most appropriate text is a description of your current position, which LinkedIn will automatically pre-set for you.
