5 Things Every Job Seeker Must Do Before Getting A Job

For every Jobseeker out there, I understand that you might have done everything possible but yet the jobs aren’t coming. I want you to know that sometimes it happens that way but the key to breaking through is positioning yourself properly. I will give you the 5 things every job seeker must do before getting a job.

This is one of the 5 things every job seeker must do in order to get that job. A lot of job seekers believe that only a connection can get you a favorable job. This might be true to an extent, but you don’t get connections by sitting right in your room surfing all the gossip blogs in Nigeria. Networking is the key that opens a lot of doors for various jobs, and it can last even for a lifetime. There are several networking mediums and ways to pass your message across to people who can really place you where you wish to belong.The power of networking can never be over-emphasized in the daily schedule of a job seeker.

Learn a Skill
In my past three articles, I have been hammering on this issue because I have seen it work for first hand. Acquiring a skill doesn’t mean you are no longer a graduate. It only helps to position you when the opportunity comes calling. I have seen doctors become musicians, I have seen bankers become models, I have seen accountants working as programmers. It wouldn’t do you good if all you have to show is the degree you acquired while in the university. My closest friend is an Engineer but works as a writer and also as a content developer with a top firm. There are some courses that getting a job vacancy attached to it is quite difficult. Instead of cursing the government from your house, get up and learn a skill that opens up new opportunities in other sectors. You have everything to lose if you don’t take action.

Engage in Something Profitable
Working as an Insurance salesman immediately after school was not funny but it made me get my first job a few months later. I put it down as one of the 5 things ever job seeker must do. Something profitable shouldn’t only be from the financial aspect; you should also look at the experience aspect. I have seen a lot of graduates who segregated jobs and ended up wishing they had taken it back then. Every experience counts, don’t misuse an opportunity to gain experience. Even if you have to teach in a school, one day you might be hired as a trainer because of your teaching experience. Don’t neglect little beginnings.

Know what you want
You should never be a Jack of all trades and master of none. If you have decided to pitch your tent as a customer care official, do well to become exposed to it. Let a potential employer know the direction you are headed to. I should be able to look at your CV and know which working sector your strength lies most. The mistake job seekers make is trying to be everything in one person. You should be able to answer the question “What can you do?” with ease. Anything you say should correspond with the experiences, skills, and certifications you have acquired. It is never too late to pick a career path, now is the time.

When you get skill sev you don't to be seeking job again.

Just to get little capital and start up. All the points works together. If you have connection and you don't have any skill, is useless.
