Do not send resumes blindly, it does not work. Go to the place of business and ask if they are hiring. Ask to speak to a manager or get an introduction from a friend that already works where you want to work. Research where you want to work, you should know about the company you want to work for. Make sure your resume helps you highlight what you will be able to give to the company you are applying for. A resume is no more than an introduction, to make a good impression discuss what you can bring to the company.
Reflect on these key points:
- 1When it comes to applying for a new job, it is a good idea to come with an introduction.
- 2Don’t make the company you reach out to do all your work for you, they are not in charge of your goals.
- 3You need to know where you want to work, what you want to do and in what industry, plus what skill-set you have that makes you suitable for what type of work.
