srimanta@brainware-india.com'

Job hunting is the medium through which you land a job. From fresh graduates green from college to seasoned professionals who are looking for greener pastures. job hunting is something that is done by all. However if you goof up during this phase, you won’t end up with the plum job you dream of. Job hunting is not all about , selecting an attractive looking job, mailing your CV, and then waiting for an offer letter.  Intelligent and insightful. job seekers will know how to job hunt strategically so that they end up with a covered job. Today we will be covering some job hunt mistakes and how to avoid them :

 

 

Not Checking Your Resume : Triple check your resume before sending it to recruiters. Spelling mistakes, grammatical corrections, typing goof ups are really irritating to recruiters. Check your resume 100 times if the job you are applying for involves a good deal of writing and editing.

 

Depending on Job Boards/Advertisements : Don’t just depend exclusively on  job boards. Check out other job sources like job fairs, company websites, etc.

 

Not Sending Cover Letter : We have said it a 1000 times before. Sending a high quality, well written and to the point cover letter will amplify your chances of landing the job. Many argue, that relevant work experience and qualifications are already mentioned in the CV, why bother with a cover letter? The answer is, that the cover letter is your personal promotional tool. Your CV will contain why you are eligible for the job, cover letter will say why you are a perfect candidate for the job. Got it?

 

Sending CV to vague To Whom It May Concern : If there’s not an email address posted where you can drop your resume, call up the HR of the company and ask to whom you should mail your CV and the title/designation of the person.

 

Forgetting to notify References : When you have mentioned references in your resume, application, notify your references through mail or a phone call, as prospective employers will be contacting them.
